Overview

The series of international workshops on elastic and diffractive scattering was founded in 1985 in the picturesque old French town of Blois, famous for its XIV – XVIIth century ch√Ęteau, inside of which the first meeting took place. Since then, meetings have been organised every two years in different places of the world: New York (1987), Evanston (1989), Isola d’Elba (1991), Providence (1993), Blois (1995), Seoul (1997), Protvino (1999), Prague (2001), Helsinki (2003), Blois (2005), Hamburg (2007) and CERN (2009). The 2011 workshop, Frontiers of QCD: From Puzzles to Discoveries, will meet at Qui Nhon, Vietnam, and will continue to focus on the most recent experimental and theoretical results in particle physics with an emphasis on quantum chromodynamics (QCD). This Workshop will also be a part of Rencontres du Viet Nam.
