The 8th International Conference on Quarks and Nuclear Physics will be held in Tsukuba, Japan on November 13-17, 2018. This conference follows the series of meetings previously held in Adelaide, Julich, Bloomington, Madrid, Beijing, Palaiseau, and Valparaiso. Experimentalists and theorists will discuss recent developments in the field of hadron and nuclear physics, and the following topics will be covered: (1) Quark and gluon structure of hadrons, (2) Hadron spectroscopy, (3) Hadron interactions and nuclear structure, and (4) Hot and cold dense matter. In addition to plenary sessions, parallel sessions will be organized in the above topics. A poster session will be also arranged. Young postdocs and students are especially welcome. Updated information will be announced on the conference web.
