I. General Announcement

The 10th Circum-Pan-Pacific Spin Symposium on High Energy Spin Physics will take place during Oct 5-8, 2015 and the Symposium venue will be Institute of Physics, Academia Sinica in Taipei, Taiwan. The scientific program will include topics related to high energy spin phenomena in particle and nuclear physics.
The aim of this Symposium is to enhance communications among physicists from the Circum-Pan-Pacific region and from other regions. Participation of young physicists in this Symposium is strongly encouraged. Recent Symposia in this series took place in Jinan, China (2013), Cairns, Australia (2011), and Yamagata, Japan (2009). The Symposium website is http://www.phys.sinica.edu.tw/PacSPIN2015/ .

II. Topics

  • Transverse and longitudinal spin structure of nucleons
  • Nucleon structure (form factors, generalized parton distribution)
  • Spin structure of hadrons
  • Spin in hard QCD processes
  • Fundamental symmetries and physics beyond the SM
  • Future facilities

Pacific Spin2015 will consist of invited talks and talks selected from contributions. All talks will be presented in plenary sessions. There will be a 30-min discussion session each day. The deadline for abstract submission is August 15th, 2015 and abstracts should be submitted via http://www.phys.sinica.edu.tw/PacSPIN2015/abstract_submit.php .

III. Registration
