international workshop
CHALLENGES IN QCD
June 20-23, 1999
Kfar Giladi, Israel

Second Circular
This is the second circular for the workshop that will address subjects at the frontiers of QCD. The format of the workshop is intended to stimulate critical discussion. Each subject will be reviewed in a few invited lectures which will be followed by panel (and audience) discussions that will emphasize the future directions of the subject. We plan to have the lectures in the morning sessions and the discussions in the evenings with the afternoons free for informal discussions while enjoying the nature of the area.

One afternoon session will be devoted to the presentation of contributed papers. One-page abstracts of contributed papers should be sent in postscript format to the workshop e-mail address by April 17, 1999.

Notifications of acceptance for oral presentations will be sent by April 25, 1999. The time allocated for the oral presentations will be 20 minutes per paper.

In this circular we send you some practical information concerning the workshop as well as a tentative scientific program.

The administrative part of the conference is in the care of Dan Knassim. Their registration form and general information sheet are enclosed. Up to date information can be found at the workshop Web site http://www-nuclear.tau.ac.il/~qcd99
