Such decays are known to be mediated by strange baryon resonances that decay to a final state comprising a proton and a kaon.
Over 150 papers highlight developments since the previous conference in 2002, among them the possible discovery of the pentaquark, developments in the four-body sector, new measurements showing interesting phenomena in baryon resonances, computational techniques and precision detectors revealing fine details of physics, and the ability to compare calculations based on effective field theory and experimental results.
