Meeting Description

The Photonuclear Reactions GRC is a forum for the presentation and discussion of the most recent and exciting results in a wide range of subatomic physics topics. Since 1959, the Photonuclear Gordon Research Conference has been a preeminent meeting for the discussion of new ideas and results, even at the preliminary stage, providing ample and unique opportunities for young scientists and leading researchers to interact in the most scientifically stimulating environment. Senior researchers and younger colleagues are housed on campus at the Holderness School, and can meet in an informal, yet rigorous atmosphere. Participation from students and junior researchers is particularly encouraged.

Topics for the 2016 conference are: Hadron spectrum and QCD; Long range hadron structure; Nucleon spin structure; Parton structure of nucleons and nuclei; Few and many nucleon systems; Standard model and new physics with photon-induced and electroweak processes; Neutrino Physics; New results in QCD theory; Future facilities and directions.

The conference is structured around invited morning and evening talks, and a late afternoon poster session. The afternoons are left on purpose free to promote discussions, exchange of new ideas, and connections among colleagues, while enjoying the many outdoor activities offered by the area.

We look forward to seeing you in Holderness!
Alberto, Julie and Barbara
