Rutgers University / Jefferson Lab
Electron-Ion Collider Workshop:
Electron-Nucleon Exclusive Reactions
The Rutgers University Nuclear
Physics Group is hosting one of several EIC Workshops jointly sponsored by
Jefferson Lab and the
Lab Users Group, and supported by the laboratory and the
Jefferson Science Associates, LLC
The Workshops explore the physics
of a high-luminosity, medium-energy EIC, as presently being developed
at JLab as a possible future option. The
Rutgers Workshop focuses on exclusive electron-nucleon reactions intended to map out
generalized parton distributions, and to describe the structure of nucleons in terms
of their basic QCD degrees of freedom, the quarks and gluons.
The goal is to have a "working" meeting to investigate the case for the physics
and the design requirements for the proposed high-luminosity machine.
The Workshop is planned for March 14-15, 2010,
in the Theory Seminar Room (385E) of Serin Physics Laboratory in Piscataway.
We expect to have support to waive all registration fees, but advance registration
is required so that the budget and our ability to support some local travel expenses
of attendees can be known in advance.
Other workshops in the series include:

An alternative proposal is for the Large Hadron Electron Collider, LHeC.
