Photonuclear Reactions
From Quarks to Nuclei
August 10-15, 2014
Holderness School
Holderness, NH

Application Deadline
The application deadline for this meeting was July 13, 2014. You may still submit an application, which may be considered by the conference chair if there is still room available.

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.
