MAMI and beyond, Day Three

Today's morning session was filled with experimental talks making the case for an electron-nucleon collider to study the structure of the nucleon.

The short afternoon session had a talk by Akaki Rusetsky (Bonn) about the determination of resonance properties from finite-volume spectroscopy using a combination of Lüscher's formula and heavy-baryon chiral perturbation theory applied to lattice simulations near (or ideally at) the physical quark masses.

After that there was an excursion to Kloster Eberbach, a nearby former Cistercian monastery, where a guided tour was combined with a wine tasting. After that, the conference dinner took place in a castle hotel on the Rhine.
