II International Workshop
Effective Theories of Low Energy QCD
25-29 September, 2002
University of Coimbra, Portugal
PROGRAM: The purpose of the workshop, organized by the Centro de Física Teórica (Coimbra, Portugal), is to provide a meeting place for discussion of recent developments in Hadron Physics, particularly in Effective Theories of Low Energy QCD.
The program includes invited talks and contributed talks, and will cover the following topics:
- Hadronic models
- Effective models of low energy QCD
- Chiral perturbation theory
- Hot and dense matter
PLACE AND DATE: The workshop will be held at the campus of the University of Coimbra. Coimbra is a historic city with many interesting sites. The university is one of the oldest of Europe (founded in 1290). It has several rich science museums, in particular a magnificient Physics Museum with an impressive collection of instruments of the 18th and 19th centuries.
The workshop will take place in September 2002 from Wednesday the 25th 09h30m until Sunday the 29th, 12h30m. Participants are expected to arrive on Tuesday, September 24th, and leave Sunday in the afternoon.
PARTICIPATION and FINANCIAL ARRANGEMENTS: Participation is by invitation or registration. We ask however the invited speakers to fill out the registration form as well. The organizers will support the stay of invited speakers. Our funds allow for accomodation in a double room (including breakfast) shared with another participant. Lunch will be provided. In general it will not be possible to support travel expenses.
REGISTRATION: The preferred method of registration is by electronic mail, using the registration form.
Since the number of participants is limited, early registration is recommended.
The registration fee is 200 EUR. Acceptable forms of payment are traveller checks or cash. Credit cards are not accepted.
The registration fee covers coffee breaks, lunches, the workshop dinner, the book of abstracts and Proceedings.
DEAD LINE: the dead line for registration and submission of abstracts
is July 20, 2002.

Some useful travel information how to get from Lisbon or Porto to Coimbra and the hotel addresses are found here. The LaTeX version of the 1st circular can be found here.
The Workshop Proceedings will be published by the AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF PHYSICS.
The manuscripts will have to be submitted to the Workshop organizers in Coimbra firstname.lastname@example.org and not to AIP directly. Please send us the LaTeX file (with the necessary PostScript figure files), and in addition the PostScript file of the whole article.
The deadline for sending the articles to us is November 30, 2002 and the page limit is 14 pages.
You should download the necessary style files from http://proceedings.aip.org/proceedings by clicking on Author Instructions and then selecting the 6 x 9 format.
We need a signed "Transfer of Copyright Agreement" from you. This form is included in the "Author Instructions" booklet handed to you at the Workshop. This signature obviously cannot be sent by e-mail, so use regular mail well in advance of the deadline, or hand the form to us during the conference.
Should you include already published material in your contribution (this concerns especially figures), you need to obtain permission from the publisher of the original article (even if you were the author!). The form "Request for Permission to Reprint Published Material" comes also with the instruction booklet. Please, be aware that this procedure is time consuming.
