CD15 29 June 2015 - 03 July 2015 Pisa, Italy
The 8th International Workshop on Chiral Dynamics (CD2015) took place in Pisa from June 29 to July 3, 2015, and it was hosted by the Physics Department of University of Pisa and the Pisa branch of the Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN).

Following the tradition of this triennial series of Conferences, it attracted theorists and experimentalists of this research field, who were brought together to highlight the recent progress in the field of low energy QCD, and to discuss and explore the direction for future development. The conference consisted of plenary talks and three working groups.

More information on CD2015 can be found at http://agenda.infn.it/event/cd2015.

We would like to thank the working group organizers for their dedicated effort, namely:

Goldstone boson WG: Mario Antonelli (Frascati), Sebastien Descotes-Genom (Orsay), Andreas Juttner (Southampton), Emilie Passemar (LANL);

Hadron structure WG: J.P. Chen (Jlab), Martin Hoferichter (Bern), Patricia Solvignon (UNH/JLab), Andre' Walker-Loud (W&M);

Few-Body WG: Mohammad Ahmed (NCCU/TUNL), Dean Lee (NCSU), Assumpta Parreno (Barcelona), Akaki Rusetsky (Bonn).

We would like to express our special thanks also to our co-organizers, Ignazio Bombaci (Univ. of Pisa), Angela Bonaccorso (INFN - Pisa), Massimo D'Elia (Univ. of Pisa), Luca Girlanda (Univ. of Salento), Alejandro Kievsky (INFN - Pisa), Enrico Meggiolaro ( Univ. of Pisa), Silvano Simula (INFN - Roma 3), and Marco Sozzi (Univ. of Pisa), for their hard work and suggestions.

We would like to thank the International Advisory Committee for their very useful inputs to the CD2015 program.

The organizers would like to thank the excellent logistic and administrative support provided by the INFN-Pisa staff, and in particular the Conference Secretary Lucia Lilli, which was instrumental for the organization of the conference and for the all the help provided during CD2015 itself. We also would like to thank Asti Incentives & Congressi (AIC), the University of Salento and the Fondazione Banca del Monte di Lucca for their support.

Finally, we would like to thank all the speakers and all the participants for their contributions and the friendly atmosphere that they helped to achieve.

In addition to the scientific program, a few social events took place during the conference. A reception was organized for the participants at Grand Hotel Duomo on Monday, June 29, in the evening, during which the Major of the City of Pisa, Marco Filippeschi, met and greeted the participants. Wednesday afternoon was reserved for an excursion to the nearby city of Lucca, where also a piano concerto by the distinguished pianist Dr. Young-Hyun Cho was given. The social dinner took place on Thursday evening in the cloister of Santa Maria del Carmine.

The upcoming Chiral Dynamics Workshop will take place in Durham, NC (USA) in 2018. We thank Mohammad Ahmed, Haiyan Gao, Calvin Howell, and Dean Lee for graciously taking the baton from us, and wish them all the best for a successful and pleasant conference.

The 7th International Workshop Chiral Dynamics: Theory and Experiment (CD12) took place at Jefferson Lab, Newport News, Virginia, USA, from August 6 to 10, 2012. Following in the tradition of this triennial series of Conferences, it attracted theorists and experimentalists, who were brought together to highlight the recent progress in the field of low energy QCD, and to discuss and explore the direction for future development. The conference consisted of plenary talks and three working groups.

We would like to thank the working group organizers for their dedicated effort, namely:

Goldstone Bosons: Mario Antonelli, Liping Gan, Jorge Portoles and Urs Wenger; Hadron Structure: Alessandro Bacchetta, Bastian Kubis, Kostas Orginos and Karl Slifer and Few Body Physics: Andreas Nogga, Assumpta Parreno, Michele Viviani and Henry Weller. We would like to express our special thanks to our co-organizers, Patricia Solvignon, Harald Griesshammer, Rocco Schiavilla, Dinko Pocanic, Robert Edwards, and Alexandre Deur for their hard work and advice. Last but not least, we thank the International Advisory Committee for their very useful inputs to the CD12 program.

The organizers thank the excellent logistic and administrative support provided by the Jefferson Lab Conference Staff, Ruth Bizot, Cynthia Lockwood, Stephanie Vermeire, Marti Hightower and MeLaina Evans, and the Conference Secretary Mary Fox, which was instrumental for the success of the organization of CD12. We thank Joanna Griffin for the poster design.

CD12 was primarily sponsored by Jefferson Lab, along with generous supports from Old Dominion University and the European Physics Journal.
