We invite you to participate in the 14th International Workshop on the Physics of Excited Nucleons. The workshop will take place in beautiful York, UK on June 17-21, 2024. The well-established NSTAR workshop brings together expertise from both experiments and theory to discuss the current progress and future prospects on the physics of the Baryon spectrum and the structure of excited nucleons. Studying the nucleon excitation spectrum provides a toolset to investigate the strong interaction in the non-perturbative regime and allows us to understand how the various baryons emerge from quantum chromodynamics (QCD).

Effective field theories, QCD-inspired models, and Schwinger-Dyson approaches to QCD aim to identify the key degrees of freedom describing the nucleon, while lattice QCD provides first-principle calculations at a precision that can confront experiment. A plethora of high-quality experimental results utilising photo- and electro-production reactions, hadron-induced reactions, e+e- and ion collisions provide experimental constraints that allow us to study in detail several aspects of the baryon spectrum including reaction amplitudes, electrocouplings, and the excited nucleon structure.

The program will comprise a series of invited plenary talks and contributed parallel sessions.
