The workshop is intended to discuss hadron-physics projects at J-PARC. Its facilities were heavily damaged by the great east Japan earthquake on March 11, 2011. However, recovery efforts have been done and the accelerator is scheduled to restart at the end of 2011. On this occasion, we organize a workshop at Tokai, the J-PARC facility site, on the hadron physics at J-PARC and related large-scale computational physics.
The Institute of Particle and Nuclear Studies of KEK decided to start theoretical activities in the new group, the J-PARC branch of the KEK theory center, from December by assigning five visiting staff members, T. Harada (Osaka E.-C. U), E. Hiyama (RIKEN), D. Jido (Kyoto U), M. Oka (Tokyo Tech), and T. Sato (Osaka U), in addition to four permanent staff members of the KEK theory center in the field of hadron and nuclear theory. This new branch aims at promoting theoretical activities on the J-PARC projects.
On the other hand, the world-fastest supercomputing system (“K”) of ten-petaflop peak performance will be completed at Kobe in the fall of 2012. To develop computational sciences and technologies by the supercomputer, the consortium of High Performance Computing Infrastructure (HPCI) was created. One of main activities is organized by the Joint Institute for Computational Fundamental Science (Tsukuba U, KEK, National Astronomical Observatory), on the particle, nuclear, and cosmological physics. These subjects have close connections to the J-PARC hadron physics.
The workshop will bring together theory and experimental communities to discuss the J-PARC and computational-physics projects. We expect participants mainly from Japan; however, we welcome international participants.
Invited speakers include
S. Aoki (Tukuba Univ.) ‘Future prospect of hadron physics from lattice QCD’
G. Baym (Univ. Illinois) ‘Neutron stars and the properties
of matter at high density’
A. Gal (Hebrew Univ.) ‘Lessons from hypernuclei’
S. H. Lee (Yonsei Univ.) ‘Hadron Physics with heavy quarks’
S. Nagamiya (J-PARC) ‘Present status on J-PARC’

We will make hotel reservations for invited speakers from abroad. For other participants, please make your own reservation. Hotels are located in Tokai, Hitachinaka, and Mito-station areas. We expect to arrange bus transportation between the JR Tokai train station and the conference site in the morning and evening on Feb. 9, 10, and 11. The details will be announced on the conference web. You may consider the following hotels in the Mito train station area:
