GWU The Workshop will take place at The George Washington University in downtown Washington, DC, a few blocks from the White House (Campus map). It will start in the morning of May 23 (Monday) and end at 1 p.m. on May 27 (Friday).

Participation is by invitation only. We plan on having about 40-50 participants, and all participants will be given the opportunity to present their recent results in plenary sessions. There will be no parallel sessions and no proceedings. Ample time will be set aside for in-depth discussions.

This is the sixth workshop in a series; the previous workshops took place in Abilene (TX, U.S.A., 2004), Zagreb (Croatia, 2005), Tuzla (Bosnia and Herzegovina, 2006), Helsinki (Finland, 2007), and Trento (Italy, 2009).

Main Topics:
• Status of experiments: πN, KN, photo- and electroproduction
• Phenomenological analyses: SAID, MAID, EBAC
• Coupled-channels approaches
• Isobar and dynamical models
• Nucleon resonances in quark models and lattice QCD
• Dynamically generated resonances
• Bare versus dressed resonance poles
• Effective field theories and chiral corrections

This workshop is dedicated to the memory of our friend and colleague, Richard A. Arndt (1933–2010).
