The next International Conference on Particles And Nuclei (PANIC08) will be held from 9 to 14 of November, 2008 in Eilat, Israel. This Conference is the 18th in the series of triennial conferences which bring together the Particle and Nuclear Physics communities. The series started in 1964 at CERN with a small meeting organized by Torleif Ericson and the late Victor Weisskopf and Amos de-Shalit and was followed by the second PANIC meeting which was open to all and held in Israel, at the Weizmann Institute in 1967.

PANIC08 will consist of plenary talks and a number of parallel sessions. The scientific program will address a broad range of topics at the interface between particle, nuclear, and astrophysics. Special emphasis will be devoted to recent discoveries and first results from new facilities expected to be available by the time of the conference.

Eilat is a well known resort town located on the shores of the Gulf of Eilat which connects Israel to the Red Sea and further down to the Indian Ocean. It commands spectacular desert and mountain views, offering many touristic experiences. In recent years Eilat has been a focal site for numerous large scale international conferences held in Israel.

PANIC08 is hosted by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Tel-Aviv University and the Weizmann Institute of Science.
