Light Cone 2019 is the latest in the series of conferences that, beginning in 1991, have played an important role in promoting research towards a rigorous description of hadrons and nuclei based on quantisation methods in the front form.

As with earlier conferences in the series, the aim of this meeting will be to create a scientific program that will stimulate developments at the forefront of nuclear, hadron and particle physics research. In particular, Light Cone 2019 will focus on the following physics topics and approaches:

Physics Topics

  • Hadronic structure
  • Small-x physics and heavy ions
  • QCD at finite temperature
  • Few- and many-body physics
  • Chiral symmetry
  • Quarkonia


  • Field theories in the front form
  • Lattice field theory
  • Effective field theories
  • Phenomenological models
  • Present and future facilities

We look forward to welcoming you at Ecole Polytechnique in September 2019 !
