Workshop on Light-Cone QCD and Nonperturbative Hadron Physics
Joint Workshop of the
Special Research Center for the Subatomic Structure of Matter
National Institute for Theoretical Physics
Monday 13 - Wednesday 22, December 1999
at the University of Adelaide

General Information: The Centre for the Subatomic Structure of Matter (CSSM) and the National Institute for Theoretical Physics (NITP) at the University of Adelaide are holding a Workshop on Light-Cone QCD and Nonperturbative Hadron Physics. The workshop has been scheduled from Monday the 13th of December through to Wednesday the 22th. This is hopefully a time in which those with teaching duties in the northern hemisphere might be able to get away. We are planning a genuine workshop with most talks in the morning, leaving the emphasis on collaborative research in the afternoons. The details of how to register for this workshop are given at the end of this document.
The provisional workshop program as well as an up-to-date list of participants is available.
Most international attendees will require a valid visa and current passport to enter Australia. Please note that air travel to, from, and within Australia can be very congested around the December-January period. If you are planning to attend you should ensure that your air travel reservations are made as soon as possible (preferably before the end of April if you wish to avoid difficulties!)
The National Institute for Theoretical Physics (NITP) and the Special Research Centre for the Subatomic Structure of Matter (CSSM) are located at:CSSMAll talks will be held in the Kerr Grant Lecture theatre of the Physics Department (Map Ref. is at H-6)
Level 4, 10 Pulteney St.

This is meant to be a true workshop in the sense that sufficient time will be made available each day for discussions which may develop into collaborative projects. It is intended that most talks will be held in the morning and the afternoons will largely left free for discussions and collaborations. A poster session will be held as demand requires. The working facilities, especially the computing resources, are excellent and every effort will be made to ensure reasonable access to e-mail and desk space.
Suggested topics include but are not limited to:
and depending on interest may include talks on
- Light cone field theory
- Perturbative QCD and phenomenology
- Lattice QCD
- Vacuum structure and chiral symmetry
- Nuclear Physics
- Low x physics
- Dyson-Schwinger equations
- Hadron spectroscopy and structure
- Effective Hamiltonians
- Matrix theory and string theory
AUS$350 (approx US$220) and AUS$175 (approx US$110) for students.
This includes all costs for the reception, continuous brewed coffee (and cookies etc. at coffee breaks), the excursion to Cleland Wildlife Park, the conference dinner at a McLaren Vales winery (including bus), and a copy of the proceedings (to be published by World Scientific)
Applications for support should be sent to the Local Organizers by e-mail (CLICK HERE). Since the budget available for support is rather limited, where support is offered to an individual it will only be a contribution to local costs. Contributions to airfares will unfortunately not be available. The highest priority for support will be given to younger people and those without access to their own travel funds.
The CSSM has access to special accommodations for visitors to the University of Adelaide which are not available to the general public. To book these accommodations of exceptional value, contact the CSSM by e-mailing Sharon Johnson or Sara Boffa at .The residential wing of the Royal Adelaide Hospital acts partly as a nurses' home. It is a five minute walk from the CSSM. Situated on Frome Road, adjacent to the University and to the rear of the Royal Adelaide Hospital site, these rooms provide views over the Botanic Gardens. Rooms with an ensuite bathroom (shower and toilet), linen, divan and television are A$45 for a single person per night or A$55 for two persons per night. Single rooms with shared facilities are available for only A$18 per night (full-time students - A$15).If you are traveling with family, suites near the beach at Glenelg can provide a very enjoyable stay at an economical price. A 30 minute tram ride into the city and a 15 minute walk into the CSSM provides a 45 minute commute from the beach to the Centre. For December inclusive, a one bedroom apartment at La Mancha (on the beachfront) is approximtely $75 per night, while a two bedroom apartment at Marco Polo (a half block short walking distance to beach) is $75 per night. For more information, just ask Sharon or Cheryl to look into booking accommodations at the beach in Glenelg.
Kathleen Lumley College is a Postgraduate College associated with the University of Adelaide. Situated across the park lands at 51 Finniss St. in North Adelaide, it is 1.4 km from the CSSM. Rooms including an ensuite bathroom (shower and toilet ), linen, and tea making facilities, as well as dinner and breakfast served Monday through Saturday are available for single occupancy at A$40 to A$45 per night. Self-contained flats for one or two persons with a private kitchen as well as dinner and breakfast Monday through Saturday are available at A$45.80 per flat. A single room with shared facilities is available for only A$22/night which still includes breakfast & dinner. Laundry facilities are also available on site.
