1 Symposium on Hadronic Structure Physics Welcome to Glasgow! Guenther RosnerSymposium, Glasgow, 14/4/20101

2 The University of Glasgow Guenther RosnerSymposium, Glasgow, 14/4/20102 In 1451, the Scottish King James II persuaded Pope Nicholas V to grant a bull authorising Bishop Turnbull of Glasgow to set up a university. Today, Glasgow Univ. has about students and staff and is one of the largest research-driven universities in the UK.
