The conference is the 7th in the series
of meetings held previously at Liblice 74 and
85 and 88,
Prague 91, and
Straz pod Ralskem 95. It retains its traditional name in
spite of being devoted to a broader field of the intermediate energy nuclear
physics these days. Particularly, the non-nucleonic degrees of freedom
in nuclei, interactions of mesons and antinucleons with nuclei,
few body systems, exotic atoms and hypernuclear physics will be
among topics covered.
The list of speakers of previous meetings includes representative and top specialists in the field. An appropriate place has been given to young physicists for presentation of their results, as well. We always aimed at arranging convenient conditions and enough space to enable people to discuss new developments also in more informal ways. It is our tradition that conference activities including accommodation and meal serving are concentrated in one place. This makes quite sincere atmosphere of the meetings which has been highly appreciated by participants. Of course, we would like to follow the best of the previous conferences also in the one being organized.

will take place in Prague. About 5 distinguished speakers will deliver
lectures aimed at undergraduate and graduate students.
is located a few km south of Prague; municipal transport (METRO) is accessible
by bus within 12 minutes.
The place is famous for its castle with a beautiful park. The castle was founded in the 12th century; the Church of the Birth of Our Lady was consecrated in 1187. The castle was renovated in 1889-1894 and rebuilt in the romantic style. At the same time count A.E. Silva- Tarouca established the park which has become well known in the world of architectural landscape gardening. There are nearly 7000 Rhododendrons and more than 1000 sorts of trees and bushes in the park.
The Conference Center provides a comfortable accommodation and good working conditions for the meeting.
Many interesting diversions await you in the surrounding area. You might spend some time bowling or playing tennis at the Hotel Pruhonice Sport Center or you might visit a swimming pool or sauna at the Conference Center. Eventually, you might be more interested in beer tasting in a local micro brewery.

An additional charge of $20 (i.e.,
registration fee of $220) will be required for all registrations received
after that date. The fee covers conference registration, proceedings, coffee,

dinner, excursion). The fee for accompanying persons is $70.
Those who register will obtain the information about methods of payment by email.
We have been searching for financial support for the conference. If we are successful we would be able to provide some support for a limited number of participants, preferentially students and young scientists.
