Hadron Physics Summer School 2012

The Hadron Physics Summer School 2012 (HPSS2012) is jointly organized by scientists from the Institut für Kernphysik of the Jülich Center for Hadron Physics, Forschungszentrum Jülich, and by the DFG Transregio TR 16 (Subnuclear Structure of Matter) of the Universities Bonn, Bochum and Giessen.

The school comprises lectures and working groups on theoretical, experimental, and accelerator aspects. The focus is on current issues in hadron physics with emphasis on the latest programs at the accelerators COSY (Jülich) and ELSA (Bonn), also featuring future FAIR projects like HESR/PANDA and PAX. During the school, guided tours to the accelerator facilities are offered.

The schools are typically attended by 60-80 graduate and advanced undergraduate students from various countries. This year, the school is directly preceeded by a Hadron Physics Summer Preschool (HPSP2012) with the aim to prepare a limited group of undergraduate students for the participation in HPSS2012. The preschool is sponsored by the European Commission HadronPhysics3/MesonNet project.
