Information on the Proceedings of the Workshop on Future Directions in Quark Nuclear Physics.


The details of how to register are given at the end of this document. A DRAFT of the WORKSHOP PROGRAM , is now available.


Purpose: 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. There will be no more than 3 talks each morning and the afternoon will be left free for discussions and collaborations. The working facilities, especially the computing resources, are excellent.

Topics: The main topic of the workshop is the transition from traditional quark to hadronic degrees of freedom, both from the theoretical perspective as a function of energy and momentum transfer, density and temperature and from the experimental perspective of current and possible future facilities.

Registration Fee: There will be a registration fee of A$75 (A$50 for students). This includes coffee breaks amongst other things.


This workshop coincides with the Adelaide Festival of Arts, which is a biennial festival of local and international performing artists. It would be well to book very early if you are keen on any particular event. For information on the festival and how to book please see: The XXth Adelaide Telstra Festival home page.

Available Support: It may be possible to make a contribution to the local costs of some participants. Students will have priority for such support.

Accommodation: For a detailed list of hotels and other types of accommodation in Adelaide click on the following text: Accommodation in Adelaide. For various other local information click on the text: Local Information for Visitors to Adelaide.

This page and a workshop program page will be regularly updated with information on this workshop.

The recommended hotels are The Mansions Apartments at A$90/night and across the road from the Institute, or the Richmond Hotel at A$85/night and just two minutes walk from the Institute.

For wealthier participants the Hyatt would be an interesting experience.

Examples of the cheaper form of accommodation are

Kathleen Lumley College, 15 minutes walk from the Institute:

  • A$22/night for a single room with shared facilities (incl. breakfast & dinner),
  • A$40 - 45/night for a room with ensuite (incl. breakfast & dinner)

    or at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, 2 minutes walk from the Institute:
  • A$18/night for a single room with shared facilities (full-time student - A$15)
  • A$55/night for a single room with ensuite

    It is also possible to arrange beachfront accommodation about 10km (45 mins travelling time) from the Institute.


    The registration can be paid on arrival at the Institute of Theoretical Physics in Adelaide. To express interest in attending the Workshop on Future Directions in Quark Nuclear Physics and to be included in the mailing list for any future notices regarding it please either:
