The International Workshop on Partial Wave Analyses and Advanced Tools for Hadron Spectroscopy (PWA13/ATHOS8) is a joint meeting combining the 13th International Workshop on Pion-Nucleon Partial Wave Analysis and the Interpretation of Baryon Resonances (PWA) and the 8th Workshop on Partial Wave Analysis Tools for Hadron Spectroscopy (ATHOS). It will take place at William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, in proximity to the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (Jefferson Lab). Previous editions were held at University of Bristol (2021), CBPF in Rio de Janeiro (2019), IHEP in Beijing (2018), George Washington University (2017), and University of Bonn (2015).


The purpose of this workshop series is to bring together experimental and theoretical groups working in hadron spectroscopy. The emphasis of the scientific program is on methods and tools for data analysis, addressing challenges that are common in the study of excited baryons, mesons, and the recently discovered exotic hadrons in the light- as well as in the heavy-quark sector. For the planned workshop, a special focus will be put on the application of innovative statistical methods like artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) to the field of amplitude analysis. An active participation of early-career scientists (students and postdoctoral researchers) in the discussions is encouraged.
