Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the PAVI-14 workshop, to be held in Skaneateles, NY, USA, July 14-18, 2014.

PAVI-14 will be the 6th workshop of the series "From Parity Violation to Hadronic Structure and more...". The first workshop was at the Institut für Kernphysik in Mainz, (Germany, 2002), followed by workshops at the Laboratory for Subatomic Physics and Cosmology in Grenoble, (France, 2004), the Milos Conference Center in Milos, (Greece, 2006), the College of the Atlantic, Bar Harbor, (USA, 2009) and at Sapienza University, Rome (Italy, 2011).

The workshop is organized by Syracuse University and the University of Virginia. This workshop offers an opportunity for experimentalists and theoreticians to discuss the most recent and future studies dealing with parity violation, and their contribution to the understanding of the fundamental properties of nature.

The scientific program of the workshop will include the following topics:
-       Atomic parity violation
-       Charge symmetry breaking quark distributions
-       Electric dipole moments
-       Electron-ion collider
-       Electroweak physics at colliders
-       Extensions of the Standard Model
-       Hadronic parity violation
-       Neutrino physics
-       Parity violating electro-scattering,
-       Quantum Chromodynamics in nuclei
-       Polarimetry
-       Polarized Sources
-       Tests of the Standard Model
-       Two-boson radiative corrections

The meeting is in a workshop format, with only plenary presentations and ample room for discussion between the presentations.


We look forward to welcoming you in Skaneateles.

This is the second announcement of the PAVI-14 workshop, to be held in Skaneateles, NY, USA,
July 14-18, 2014. For those planning to attend, housing arrangements should be made by May 15
to assure availability.

INTRODUCTION
PAVI-14 will be the 6th workshop of the series "From Parity Violation to Hadronic Structure and
more...". This workshop offers an opportunity for experimentalists and theoreticians to discuss the
most recent and future studies dealing with parity violation, related precision measurements, and
their contribution to the understanding of fundamental properties of nature.

The workshop is organized by Syracuse University and the University of Virginia. The PAVI
workshop series originated at the Institut für Kernphysik in Mainz, (Germany, 2002), followed by
workshops at the Laboratory for Subatomic Physics and Cosmology in Grenoble, (France, 2004),
the Milos Conference Center in Milos, (Greece, 2006), the College of the Atlantic, Bar Harbor,
(USA, 2009) and at Sapienza University, Rome (Italy, 2011).

PROGRAM
The scientific program of the workshop will include the following topics:

- Atomic parity violation
- Charge symmetry breaking quark distributions
- Electric dipole moments
- Electron-ion collider
- Electroweak physics at colliders
- Extensions of the Standard Model
- Hadronic parity violation
- Neutrino physics
- Nuclear structure and symmetry energy in heavy nuclei
- Parity violating electron-scattering
- Polarimetry
- Polarized sources
- Quantum Chromodynamics in nuclei
- Tests of the Standard Model
- Two-boson radiative corrections
The meeting is in a workshop format, with only plenary presentations and ample room for
discussion between the presentations. A poster session will be held to include additional
contributions. Titles for proposed presentation or poster contributions should be sent to
souder@phy.syr.edu by May 15. Proceedings for the workshop will be published.

WORKSHOP VENUE
The workshop will be held at the Stella Maris Retreat, originally an 1879 Roosevelt mansion and
now a retreat and conference center, on beautiful Skaneateles Lake. Meals for all participants will
be provided on-site. The Village of Skaneateles is in walking distance with many additional
restaurants and other offerings including swimming, kayaking, biking and local
museums. Conference events, including a public lecture on physics and medicine, a private
chamber music concert by Syracuse symphony musicians, a Skaneateles Lake boat tour with lunch,
and the Sherwood Inn (c.1820) banquet, are all in walking distance.

REGISTRATION
Registration is open at the workshop website http://pavi14.syr.edu . The registration fee includes all
conference activities and all meals from July 14-18 ($650), with an option to also include a room at
the Stella Maris Retreat ($900). Meals and conference activities are also available for companions
for an additional fee. After May 15, all conference fees will rise by 10%. The registration fee is
payable on-line by credit card, or at the workshop with cash or credit card.

Some workshop funds are available to help support participation by junior scientists; contact
souder@phy.syr.edu for information.

TRAVEL AND ACCOMMODATION
Guest rooms at Stella Maris, generally having a pleasant view of the lake or grounds, are arranged
in halls of six to eight rooms with a shared restroom and shower facility. Only 55 rooms are
available; these are expected to fill up. Participants staying off-site will need to make arrangements
soon as the workshop is held during the high season in this lakefront resort. Some discounted rates
on off-site accommodations are listed at http://pavi14.syr.edu for reservations made before May 15.

Skaneateles is served by the Syracuse Hancock International Airport (SYR), about 35 minutes away
by car. A conference airport shuttle will be available for a fee from Syracuse Airport to Skaneateles.
Free parking is available at Stella Maris if renting a car.

We look forward to welcoming you in Skaneateles.
