Light Cone 2020 (LC2020) postponed to 2021 as Light Cone 2021 (LC2021)

Dear Colleagues,

Because of the covid-19 pandemic and the uncertainties on travel and organizing events with a significant number of participants, the organizing committee and the International Light Cone Advisory Committee (ILCAC) decided to postpone Light Cone 2020 Conference by one year and to have it as Light Cone 2021 (LC2021). The new dates will be July 5-10, 2021 and the venue is the same as for LC2020. The detailed information on LC2021 will be announced later through the following webpage.

Light Cone Conference 2021 (LC2021) - Physics of Hadrons on the Light Front
Dates: July 5 - 10, 2021
Venue: Jeju Booyoung Hotel, Jeju, Korea

New Homepage: https://indico.cern.ch/e/LC2021
Email: lightcone2021@gmail.com, lightcone2020@gmail.com 

We are looking forward to meeting you at Jeju next year. Please note the new dates in your calendar.


Sincerely yours,


The Local Organizing Committee of 2020-2021 Edition of the Light Cone Conference


Dear Colleagues,

Due to the rapid spread of COVID-19 across the globe, the local organizers of the Light Cone 2020 (LC2020) decided to postpone the conference schedule to the period of December 14 - 18, 2020, in consultation with the International Light Cone Advisory Committee (ILCAC). The venue of the conference remains the same, Jeju Booyoung Hotel & Resort.
The corresponding circular for the LC2020 will be distributed again in summer, which will contain the updated details of the conference. We regard the safe and healthy environment for the participants of the LC2020 conference as our top priority. We are looking forward to meeting you at LC2020 in December.
Sincerely yours,
Local Organizing Committee

Light Cone 2020 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 2020 will focus on the following physics topics and approaches:

Physics Topics

  • hadron structure and parton physics
  • meson and baryon (N*) resonances
  • XYZ and exotic hadrons
  • quarkonia
  • the physics of B factories
  • finite temperature and density QCD
  • nuclear structure and nuclear matter
  • hypernuclei
  • few- and many-body physics
  • electroweak scatterings with nuclear targets
  • neutrino physics
  • spin physics
  • physics of electron-ion colliders
  • high-energy experiments

Theoretical and Experimental Tools

  • light-front field theories
  • lattice field theory
  • effective field theories
  • phenomenological models
  • coupled channels models
  • present and future facilities

We look forward to welcoming you at Jeju island in Korea during the pre-Christmas season of 2020 (14-18 December, 2020) !
