4Apr2015: 3rd and final circular

Dear Colleagues,

this is the third and final circular of the
6th Workshop of the APS Topical Group on Hadronic Physics
(GHP15) which will be held on 8-10 April 2015
in Baltimore, MD, USA.

Program
--------
The program for the GHP15 workshop is posted at
http://jlab.org/indico/event/GHP2015
and consists of plenary and specialized parallel sessions.
There is a large number of invited talks both in plenary session and in the parallel session. We also received a significant number of contributed talks. The length of invited talks is 30min and the length of contributed talks is 15 min or 20min.

On Wednesday, April 8, 2015 from 6pm-7pm we will hold a business meeting of the APS Topical Group on Hadron Physics (GHP). During the business meeting we will congratulate the newly named APS Fellows nominated through GHP.
We encourage everybody to attend. The meeting will take place in the same room as the plenary talks (see below).


Venue
-------------------------------------------
The workshop will take place in the Hilton Baltimore Inner Harbor hotel.
Signs and posters of GHP15 workshop will guide you to the lecture rooms.
The plenary session and the GHP business meeting will be held in Johnson Room.
The parallel session will be held in Johnson Room and Peale A and Peale B.

Banquet :
--------------
An important social event of the GHP workshop series is the workshop banquet, which will take place on Thursday, April 9.  It will be held at the Rusty Scupper Restaurant, on the waterfront promenade in Baltimore's Inner Harbor. The restaurant is located above the Inner Harbor Marina building with excellent private function space. The GHP workshop will have an exclusive use of the 3rd floor of the restaurant building that has a panoramic view of the Inner Harbor. The dinner consists of four courses soup, salad, three choices of the main course, and a dessert.
One of the choices for the main course is the signature crab cakes.
A vegetarian option is available and food allergies can be also accommodated.
The cost of the dinner is $50/person.
The sign-up for the banquet is now completed and only very limited
number of slots is available. If you wish to attend the banquet please
contact Ramona Vogt (rlvogt@lbl.gov) immediately. The remaining slots
will be offered on first come first serve basis and the final count
of the attendees must be sent by Sunday, April 5.
