The workshop, to be held at the Institute for Particle Physics Phenomenology (IPPP) at Durham University, brings together the nuclear and particle physics communities to discuss the latest developments (experimental and theoretical) in exotic and conventional hadron spectroscopy.
The spectrum of hadrons has become increasingly rich in recent years, owing to ongoing experimental discoveries at both particle and nuclear physics experiments. The properties of known states have been measured with improved precision, and many new states (both conventional and exotic) have been discovered. Often similar states and search methods are discussed separately in the particle and nuclear physics communities, with little interaction between them. This workshop facilitates communication between these communities, with the ultimate aim of improving our understanding of the spectrum of hadrons. A particular focus is new analysis methods and search strategies for current and future experimental facilities (CERN, JLab, Mainz, BESIII, BelleII, PANDA).
