The aim of the workshop is to bring together the nuclear and particle physics communities to discuss experimental searches for exotic hadronic resonances (tetra, penta, hexaquarks etc); the latest data analysis methods used; the theoretical interpretation of these states and the potential for future searches at current experimental facilities (CERN, JLab, Mainz). It is hoped that this workshop...
