Applications for this meeting must be submitted by July 13, 2014. Please apply early, as some meetings become oversubscribed (full) before this deadline. If the meeting is oversubscribed, it will be stated here. Note: Applications for oversubscribed meetings will only be considered by the Conference Chair if more seats become available due to cancellations.
Photonuclear Reactions is a forum for the presentation and discussion of the
most recent and exciting results in a wide range of subatomic physics. Topics for the 2014
Conference are: nucleon structure; hadron spectroscopy; meson-nucleon interactions;
chiral dynamics; few-body systems; nuclear systems, including exotic nuclei, nuclei at
short distances, and nuclei and QCD; new results in QCD theory; neutrino physics; fundamental
symmetries; dark physics; subatomic physics and the universe; future facilities and directions.
Since 1959, the Photonuclear GRC has been a preeminent meeting for the presentation of new ideas,
providing ample and unique opportunities for young scientists and leading researchers to interact
in the most scientifically stimulating environment.
A list of preliminary session topics and speakers is displayed below (discussion leaders, where known, are noted in italics). The detailed program is currently being developed by the Conference Chair and will be available by April 10, 2014. Please check back for updates.
