The main aim of the “Strange Matter Workshop Strangeness studies in Italy and Japan” Workshop is to discuss the status of the experiments performed in Italy (DAFNE collider) and Japan (J-PARC) which are studying the strong interactions of strangene (loans and hyperons) particles with the nuclear matter at low-energies, in particular kaonic atoms and nuclei, as well as hyperon-nuclei interactions. Implications in physics and astrophysics will be discussed, together with future plans.
The Workshop is organized and supported by MAECI (Ministero degli Affari Esteri e della Cooperazione Internazionale), within the StrangeMatter project, and by LNF-INFN.
