HYP2012-XI International Conference on Hypernuclear and Strange Particle Physics
The 11th International Conference on Hypernuclear and Strange Particle Physics (HYP2012) will take place in Barcelona (Spain) from Monday October 1st through Friday October 5th 2012.
The HYP conference brings together theoreticians and experimentalists working on the physics of few-hadrons and bound nuclear systems containing strangeness. This area of research covers a broad variety of topics including, among others, the physics of Λ hypernuclei, multistrange systems, kaonic nuclear clusters or the role of strangeness in extreme forms of matter. Along the years, the conference has always been open to include new and challenging problems, extending its frontiers to emerging subfields in nuclear and particle physics. Following this dynamical character, the 2012 edition will include topics related to the role of the charm quark in nuclear systems.
This will be the eleventh in a series of conferences, held periodically every three years, following the successful HYP-X of Tokai (Japan) in 2009. The HYP2012 conference, hosted by the Nuclear Theory group of the Departament d'Estructura I Constituents de la Matèria of the University of Barcelona (UB) and the Institut de Ciències del Cosmos (ICC), will include plenary and contributed talks, as well as poster sessions, all of them taking place at the main auditorium and auxiliary rooms of the Cosmocaixa, Science Museum of Barcelona. We hope that the location will allow visitors to encompass the joy of physics with mediterranean weather, food and art.
