INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON THE GDH SUM RULE BEGINS TODAY

The Physics Department of Old Dominion University and the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility will host the third international symposium on the Gerasimov-Drell-Hearn Sum Rule from June 2-5, 2004.

The goal of the symposium, to be held in ODU's Mills Godwin and Oceanography and Physics buildings, is to bring together experimentalists and theorists working on spin structure functions and their moments at low and intermediate energies. Previous symposiums were held in Mainz, Germany, and Genova, Italy.

The symposium will consist of 20 invited talks, 30 contributed talks and two topical sessions with roundtable discussions on topics ranging from the Gerasimov-Drell-Hearn Sum Rule with real photons and its extensions to virtual photons and spin polarizabilities and Compton scattering.
