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.
This is the second in what we hope will become a series of
workshops in alternating years, after the successful
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.
At this workshop
some discussion and presentations on the Jefferson Lab Hall D
physics program will be included in the program.
The workshop follows Lattice 2003 to be held in Tsukuba
July 15-19 and is timed to take account of the fact that many
travelling to Asia for the Tsukuba meeting could not afford to make
two separate trips to the region in one year.
The workshop has been scheduled from Tuesday the 22nd of July through
to Wednesday the 30th of July, 2003 with the weekend (July 26, 27)
free. Details of how to register for
this workshop are given at the end of this page.

The Workshop will have morning talks and late afternoon talks

can access their e-mail. Working areas will be available for
discussions and coffee and tea will be also be available throughout
the day. The program is available here.
The proceedings will be
published by Elsevier Science B.V.
in a special volume of Nuclear Physics B - Proceedings Supplement.
The proceedings of LHP2001 have appeared in
Nucl. Phys. B, Proc. Suppl. 109A (2002) 1-230. The format of contributions
to LHP2003 must be prepared with Elsevier's CRC LaTeX package,
the 2-column CRC format, which can be downloaded from
