1.  Brief description

This workshop brings together theoretical and experimental researchers working in the area of hadron spectroscopy and dynamics, with an emphasis on multi-quark/gluon systems containing heavy flavors.

2.  Topics

   - XYZ meson spectroscopy (hidden heavy quarks)

   - recent results from BaBar, Belle and BESIII

   - interpretation of the Zb states

   - suggested future measurements

   - Other exotic states

   - doubly charmed mesons (Tcc, Xicc, etc.)

   - H-dibaryon, charmed dibaryon

   - Hadron-hadron scattering

   - pi-pi scattering length

   - New results from CLAS & LEPS and future plans

   - Physics with the J-PARC high momentum beam line

3.  Conference site

All sessions will be held at the Haeundae Grand Hotel in Busan KOREA,  Haeundae is a beach area in Busan with many hotels in all price ranges all within walking distance to the meeting site.  It is also served by line 2 of the Busan Metro system, making it easily accessible from central Busan in 30~40 minutes.
