The 4th Circum-Pan-Pacific Symposium On High Energy Spin Physics (SPIN 2003)
4-7 August 2003, Seattle, USA

This is the fourth in the series of symposiums organized by physicists in the countries around the Pacific Rim, devoted mainly to high-energy QCD spin physics. The first two symposiums were held in Japan. The third one was held in Beijing, China in Oct. 2001. The goal of the symposiums is to bring together experimentalists and theorists to discuss progress, open questions, and future prospects in the field of high-energy spin physics. For this meeting, we expect to hear new results from RHIC spin collaborations, HERMES collaboration at DESY, COMPASS collaboration at CERN, JLab experiments from Hall A & B, SLAC E158, and many more...

Besides the four half-day plenary sessions, we plan to have six parallel sessions on various topics of QCD spin physics.

Plenary Session Speakers include (in random order, shown confirmed talks only):
W. Vogelsang, Introductory talk
S. Vigdor, RHIC Spin Physics at Star
J. Qiu, RHIC Spin Physics: Theory
G. Cates, Moller scattering at SLAC
