This is the first circular of the 9th Biennial Workshop of the APS Topical Group on Hadronic Physics (GHP2021) which will be held virtually April 13-16, 2021. The workshop immediately precedes the APS April Meeting 2021 which is also virtual.
The workshop website can be found at: https://indico.jlab.org/e/ghp2021
To assist in meeting organization we invite all those interested to register at the workshop website. There will be a registration fee for the workshop and this will be announced once we know the costs of the virtual platform.
The workshop will consist of plenary talks and invited/contributed parallel talks. We anticipate that all parallel talks will be 20+5 mins. If there is sufficient interest we will also hold a virtual poster session.
Abstract submission is now open on the website with a deadline of 15 January 2021.
The GHP workshop provides a great opportunity for nuclear and particle physicists to share their research and common interests in hadronic physics. We are hoping for your attendance and participation, and that you will also encourage your students and postdocs to take part.
The topics of the workshop include:
- Electroweak probes
- Extreme matter and neutron star collisions
- Hadrons in nuclei
- Hadron spectroscopy
- Hadron tomography and hadronization
- Heavy flavor and jet production
- Neutrino-hadron interactions
- New physics and discrete symmetry violation in hadron physics
- Nonequilibrium dynamics
- Nucleon and nuclear spin physics
- Origin of hadron mass
- Physics of the quark-gluon plasma
- Quantum information for hadron physics
- Small systems and collectivity
- Transverse and longitudinal structure of hadrons
- Ultraperipheral Collisions
Please mark your calendars. We hope to see many of you at this virtual GHP2021 workshop.
