This book contains the proceedings of the third international workshop on "From Parity Violation to Hadronic Structure and more ..." which was held at the George Eliopoulos conference center on the Greek island of Milos in May 2006.
Fifty years after the 1956 proposal of Lee and Yang to test the hypothesis of violation of parity symmetry in the weak interaction, the many applications of parity violation in very different experiments are way beyond the scope of what Lee and Yang could have imagined. For the physics topics discussed during this workshop, the application of parity violation has become a standard work horse allowing for the extraction of many physics topics in different experiments.
It is part of a series that started in Mainz in 2002 and was followed by a second workshop in Grenoble in 2004. While originally initiated by the extraction of the strangeness contribution to the electromagnetic form factors of the nucleon, the workshop series has continuously broadened the focus to the application of Parity Violation using hadronic probes and to Parity Violation experiments in atomic physics.
