First Announcement for the 21st International Symposium on Spin Physics (Spin2014)

Spin2014 will be held on the campus of Peking University, Beijing, China, during October 20-24, 2014. The scientific program of this Symposium will include topics related to spin phenomena in particle and nuclear physics as well as those in related fields. The International Spin Physics Symposium series combined together the High Energy Spin Symposia and the Nuclear Polarization Conferences since 2000. The most recent symposia took place in Charlottesville, Virginia, USA (2008), Forschungszentrum Juelich, Germany (2010), and JINR, Dubna, Russia (2012).
