General Information

The 9th joint International HADRON STRUCTURE '15 Conference is organized by Slovak scientific Institutions together with Petersburg Nuclear Physics Institute (National Research Centre “Kurchatov Institute”) in Gatchina, Russia.

The Conference will be held during the days 29. June — 3. July, 2015 in GRAND HOTEL BELLEVUE, Horný Smokovec, Slovak Republic, on the foothills of the High Tatras Mountains, about 340km north east from Bratislava.

The main physics topics of the Conference include

  • Models of the structure of hadrons
  • Perturbative and nonperturbative QCD
  • Heavy-ion collisions
  • Hadron spectroscopy
  • Precision tests of the Standard Model, extensions of the Standard Model
  • Physics of the LHC and future colliders
  • DIS on proton and nuclei
