Gatchina, Russia, July 4 – July 8, 2012
Hadron Structure and QCD:
from LOW to HIGH energies
General Information

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 in 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 in 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
