The 31st International Symposium on Lattice Field Theory was held at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Germany from Monday 29th July to Saturday 3rd August 2013.
The annual lattice symposium brings together a global community of researchers from theoretical particle physics and beyond, who employ numerical and computational methods to study the properties of strongly interacting physical systems, above all Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD), the theory describing the interactions of quarks and gluons.
Topics included studies of the spectrum and structure of hadrons, lattice studies of matter under extreme conditions, hadronic contributions to weak decay amplitudes, as well as recent developments in simulation algorithms and computer hardware. The 503 participants came from all over the globe, with a particularly strong representation from Europe, the US and Japan.
