8th Biennial Workshop of the APS Topical Group on Hadronic Physics (GHP2019)

The 8th Biennial Workshop of the APS Topical Group on Hadronic Physics (GHP2019) will be held April 10-12, 2019 in Denver, CO. The workshop provides a great opportunity for nuclear and particle physicists to meet and discuss their common interests in hadronic interactions. The workshop precedes the APS April Meeting 2019 and will take place at the same venue, the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel.

The meeting website is at: https://www.jlab.org/indico/event/282/
