The Centre for the Subatomic Structure of Matter (CSSM) and the
National Institute for Theoretical Physics (NITP) at Adelaide University
together with the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility
are holding a Workshop on Lattice Hadron Physics.
The topics covered at the workshop will be primarily focussed
on lattice QCD, although other aspects of nonperturbative
field theory, quark model phenomenology, and experimental
physics will be expected to play a role. There is no restriction
on the topics within lattice QCD itself, although as the
workshop title suggests some emphasis on applications
of the lattice to hadron physics is expected.
The workshop has been scheduled from Monday the 9th of July through
to Wednesday the 18th of July, 2001 with the first Wednesday (July 11)
and the Sunday (July 15) free days. The details of how to register for
this workshop are given at the end of this page.
The program is available
The Proceedings will be published by Elsevier Science B.V.
in a special volume of Nuclear Physics B - Proceedings Supplement.
The format of contributions to this volume must be
prepared with Elsevier's CRC LaTeX package, the 2-column CRC format,
which can be downloaded from
The deadline for submissions to the organisers is 15 November, 2001 .
Most international attendees will require a
current passport to enter Australia. A currency converter
is available here.
Please note that air travel to, from, and within Australia can
be congested in the workshop period since it coincides with the
school and university mid-year breaks. If you are planning to
attend you should ensure that your air travel reservations are
made *well in advance* of your travel!
The recommended accommodation and workshop site is at the
Rihga Colonial Club Resort
which is located 6 kms from downtown
Cairns, near the
Great Barrier Reef
Daintree Rain Forest.
The aim of the workshop is
to bring together a number of specialists in lattice QCD as well
as others working in the areas of hadron physics and nonperturbative
field theory in order to discuss and make progress in this area from
the lattice perspective.
The Workshop will have morning talks and late afternoon talks
with most of the afternoon left free for collaborative
discussions and working groups. Sufficient computers and
connections for notebooks will be provided so that people
can access their e-mail. Working areas will be available for
discussions and coffee and tea will be also be available throughout
A$650 (approx US$375) by April 30, 2001 and A$750 (approx US$425)
This includes all costs for the reception, continental breakfasts,
lunches, continuous brewed coffee (and cookies etc. at coffee breaks),
the workshop dinner and a copy of the proceedings.
A free bus from the workshop venue (Rihga)
to Cairns (10 minutes) will be provided
so that participants can choose from a
variety of restaurants in Cairns for dinner
at night (participants are responsible for
the cost of their evening meals).
Alternatively, the Rihga has two
restaurant and a casual cafe for those
who might prefer to have their evening
meal at the workshop venue.
Accompanying guests are welcome to join participants for
breakfast and lunch at a cost of A$8.00 for breakfast and
A$15.00 for lunch per person per day. Vouchers can be purchased
at registration on the morning of Monday July 9.
for support should be sent to the
Local Organizers by e-mail (CLICK HERE).
Financial support for attendance at the workshop is very
limited and in the first instance will be available on a
competitive basis to junior attendees with limited access to
support from other sources. Registration waivers will not be
given since it is the registration that is funding the venue,
food, dinner, proceedings etc. Any support that is offered will
be in the form of contributions to travel and/or accommodation
Participants can make their own accommodation arrangements off-site,
though this is not recommended.
We have negotiated discounted accommodation costs with the
workshop site, the
Rihga Colonial Club Resort
at which several options are available:
Standard room - 1 double bed/1 single bed = A$105 per night
(twin share = A$52.50 per night per person)
The budget conscious interested in the cheaper off-site accommodation
(although this means that a walk to and from the workshop site will be
necessary) should contact the CSSM by e-mailing Sharon Johnson or Sara Boffa
AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, since this
is peak season!
Colonial Room - 1 queen bed/1 single bed = A$125 per night
(twin share = A$62.50 per night per person)
Superior room - 2 queen size beds = A$139 per night
(twin share = A$69.50 per night per person)
With the two free days (Wednesday July 11 and Sunday July 15)
participants are encouraged to visit some
of the exciting local attractions such as the Great Barrier
Reef and the Daintree Rain Forest. The Rihga Colonial Club
Resort provides a comprehensive professional tour service
desk for their guests' convenience.
CSSM is pleased to be able to offer workshop participants access to our
special hire car rates with Avis Car Hire. If you would like to hire a
car for some sightseeing on the free days you will need to quote the
following number P668999 to obtain the cars at a better rate. The only
requirement is that you have had a full drivers license valid in your
country of residence for at least one year. The Rihga Colonial Club
Resort has a tour desk and an Avis counter where bookings can be made.
Please produce your workshop name badge when collecting your car as
proof of being a workshop delegate. Below is a table of car groups and
prices per day for your information.
Group/Example/Transmission/Price per day(1-3 days,4-6 days,7+days)
