Hadron Structure and QCD:
from LOW to HIGH energies
Bulletin - HSQCD’2012, Gatchina, Russia, July 4 - July 8, 2012

An international Workshop "Hadron Structure and QCD" (HSQCD'2012) is organized by St. Petersburg Nuclear Physics Institute, St. Petersburg State University, St. Petersburg State Polytechnical University, V.A. Fock Institute of Physics, Institute of Physics of Slovak Academy of Sciences and Comenius University, Bratislava.

It will be held on July 4 - July 8, 2012 at Gatchina, a picturesque southern suburb of St. Petersburg, especially wonderful in period of the famous white nights. Plenary and parallel sessions will be carried out at the site of St. Petersburg Nuclear Physics Institute, Gatchina.

The aim of this workshops is to review the recent progress in the hadronic physics, QCD, the Standard Model and its generalizations. The joint Workshop unifies the series of two workshops: "Hadron Structure" held in Slovakia from 1973, and "Hadron Structure and QCD" held in St. Petersburg from 2004. Now the joint Workshop is carried out annually, in the odd years in Slovakia and in the even years in Russia. The first joint Workshop HS’07 was held in Slovakia, 2007.

The physics topics of the workshop include:

  • perturbative QCD, DGLAP- and BFKL-evolutions
  • polarized and nonpolarized parton distribution functions
  • Pomeron, hard diffraction and small-x physics
  • heavy-ion collisions, quark-gluon matter
  • nonperturbative QCD, lattice computations, chiral model of hadrons
  • hadron spectroscopy, exotic states
  • precision tests of the Standard Model, extensions of the Standard Model
  • physics of the LHC and future colliders
  • neutrino physics
At present we would like to know about your intention to participate in this workshop and ask you kindly to register on the web-side as soon as possible, because the number of participants is limited.

Note, that

Please, fill the application form in "Visa information" at the HSQCD’2012 web-site, if you need Russian visa. Further, please inquire your local Russian consulate near your residence whether a fax/scanned copy of the visa invitation document is sufficient. Note also, that the participants affiliated with CERN can obtain Russian visa in a simplified way.

Please, indicate also a tentative title of your talk at the registration. The program committee will select talks for plenary and parallel sessions.

The conference fee is 350 EURO for senior participants and 250 EURO for students. The conference fee covers meals, coffee-breaks, workshop dinner, various social events, transportation from/to airport and workshop proceedings. Accompanying persons will be charged 300 EURO. Accommodation is varied from Institute hotel "Akademicheskaya" and "Gakkel-House" hotel at Gatchina, as well as the hotel "Park Inn - Pulkovskaya" in the south of St. Petersburg. Booking in advance is required.

Looking forward to hear from you,
best regards,
