Mumbai University is organizing Light Cone conference 2017 (LC17): Frontiers in Light Hadron Physics: Theory and Experiment from September 18 to 22.

About Light Cone 2017

The main objective of the Light Cone conference series is to provide an yearly update of the progress in light-front theory and its phenomenological applications.

Light-front theory provides a suitable framework to calculate observables such as scattering amplitudes, decay rates, spin effects, parton distributions, and other hadronic observables. One of the themes of the conference will be the interface between theory and experiment in hadron physics.

It aims on encouraging young physicists to join and actively discuss with the world experts participating in this meeting.
