18:30 Party


We are pleased to announce that the symposium entitled ``Harmonies and Surprises on the Lattice (HASUL) - On the occasion of A. Nakamura's 60th birthday -'' will be held on March 13(Sat), 2010 in Hiroshima University, Japan.

The main subjects of this symposium are QCD at finite temperature and density on the lattice and related physics, that Professor Nakamura has been having continuous interest and doing large contribution. After the symposium, we will have a party to celebrate his 60th birthday.

The symposium will start at 9:00, and the party will start at 18:00 at the same hall.

The fee of the party is 6,000 JPY.

Invited speakers:
  F. Karsch (BNL)
  S. Kim (Seoul National University)
  M. Lombardo (INFN)
  S. Gupta (TIFR)
  V. Zakharov (MPI)
  H. Sumiyoshi (Matsumoto Univ.)
  M. Yahiro (Kyushu Univ.)
  S. Sakai (Yamagata Univ.(emeritus))
  A. Ohnishi (YITP)
  T. Hatsuda (Univ. Tokyo)
