General Information: 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 here .

Proceedings: 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 here. The deadline for submissions to the organisers is 15 November, 2001 .

Travel Planning:
Most international attendees will require a valid visa and 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 and the 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 the day.

Registration Fee:
A$650 (approx US$375) by April 30, 2001 and A$750 (approx US$425) thereafter.
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.

Available Support:
Applications 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 costs only.

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:

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 at AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, since this is peak season!

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.

Car Rental:
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.
