Spin is one of the basic properties of elementary particles, as well as composite systems. Discoveries concerning spin have often led to the opening of a new chapter of physics. The spin structure of the nucleon, namely how the spins and orbital angular momenta of the constituent partons combine
to form the nucleon spin 1/2, is presently one of the most actively
studied areas of QCD, both experimentally and theoretically.

The aim of the symposium is to enhance communications among physicists from the Circum-Pan-Pacific region and from other regions. Supporting presentations of young physicists is another feature of this symposium.
