We will have an international workshop on Universal Physics in Many-Body Quantum Systems. The main topics are the following four subjects: (1) Clarifying the origin of hadron resonances, hadron correlations, di-quark correlations. (2) Exploring the role of alpha-cluster correlations, neutron correlations and proton- neutron correlations in nuclei. (3) Understanding universal physics from exact solutions to the quantum many-body problem and controllable Hamiltonians. (4) Finding universal properties common to atomic and molecular systems and hadronic and nuclear systems.
We aim at cross-disciplinary communication, understanding, and a possibility of starting new science

The workshop consists of invited talks and contributed poster presentations of different fields. Those who are interested in our workshop, particularly students and young researchers, are encouraged to apply for ones poster presentations. Participation without any presentation is also welcome.

Please send the registration form to the Reimei Workshop mail address "" . (Deadline = End of November)
