24th International Symposium on Spin Physics
September 21-25, 2020, Matsue, Japan

The 24th International Symposium on Spin Physics (SPIN 2020) will be held at Kunibiki Messe Convention Center in Matsue, Shimane prefecture, Japan on September 21-25, 2020.
The International Spin Physics Symposium series has been held jointly since 2000, combining the High Energy Spin Symposia and the Nuclear Polarization Conferences.
The most recent symposia took place in Dubna, Russia (2012), Beijing, China (2014), Urbana Champaign, USA (2016), and Ferrara, Italy (2018).
SPIN 2020 will be co-chaired by Yuji Goto and Tomohiro Uesaka (RIKEN).

The scientific program of SPIN 2020 will include topics related to spin phenomena in particle and nuclear physics as well as those in related fields.
The symposium topics cover acceleration, storage and polarimetry of polarized beams; applications of spin physics; fundamental symmetries and physics beyond the standard model; future facilities and experiments; nucleon structure; polarized ion and lepton sources and targets; spin physics in nuclear reactions and nuclei; spin physics using photon, lepton and hadron probes; and the spin structure of hadrons.
The symposium format consists of talks in plenary, parallel and poster sessions.

Matsue city and Shimane prefecture are a famous and interesting area with over 2,000 years of history ranging from the Japanese creation myth era to modern times.
You can find the Izumo Taisha (Grand Shrine), the historic Tatara Iron Mill, Matsue Castle, famous Japanese gardens and other popular sights here.
Matsue can be easily accessed from two nearby local airports, Izumo airport and Yonago airport, both of which are connected to Japan's large international airports in Tokyo, Osaka, etc. by more than 10 daily flights.

A preliminary webpage for SPIN 2020 can be accessed at
The page will be updated with additional information when available.
For further information or questions, please contact the organizers directly or send an email to

We look forward to meeting you in Matsue.
