The investigation of hadronic and nuclear probes with protons and electrons in the energy range of a few GeV is of great importance for the understanding of the properties of nucleons and mesons as well as of their interaction. Experimental results from studies with these beams provide the basis for the development and the tests of theoretical approaches in the energy regime of non-perturbative QCD. They can also clarify the effect of the nuclear medium on elementary reactions. The conference has reviewed the present status of this field of research. The topics have been: physics of the nucleon (form factors, spin structure, excitations); Physics of mesons (production, properties, decays); hadron-hadron interactions (baryon-baryon and baryon-antibaryon, meson-nucleon and meson-meson); and medium modifications of hadronic properties in cold nuclear matter. The conference topics comprised investigations near energy thresholds in the tradition of the conference on Particle Production near Threshold in Nashville, IN, USA, 1990, and Uppsala, Sweden, 1992.
