This workshop will be dedicated to the memory of Professor Carlo Guaraldo, from INFN-LNF, Deputy Scientific Coordinator of the STRONG-2020 project, who passed away on 19th May 2024 in Roma.


The Workshop will be held in person from 17 to 19 June 2024, in Frascati (Italy) in the context of the project STRONG-2020 


The objective is to gather a broad Hadron Physics Community, including both young and experienced researchers. 

The first day will be dedicated to selected contributions. STRONG-2020 offers an opportunity to cover local and travel expenses for young researchers.

During the second and third days, invited speakers will present their work and perspectives in various areas of Hadron Physics and related fields.  

The Workshop will be followed by the STRONG-2020 Annual Meeting organized in Frascati on 20-21 June 2024 and open to a large audience. The Agenda will be soon available and the Registration is possible at the dedicated site here.


A public event is foreseen on 19/06/2024 at 18:30, to be held at the "Scuderie Aldobrandini", where some of the participants will meet the general public to introduce them to the topics of the workshop and to reply to eventual questions.



This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 824093
