Workshop on
''Testing QCD through Spin Observables in Nuclear Targets''
University of Virginia, Charlottesville, Virginia, USA
April 18 - 20, 2002

Sponsored by Jefferson Lab, the International Spin Committee, and the Institute of Nuclear and Particle Physics at the University of Virginia.
Dear Colleagues,

This is the second circular regarding the workshop on ''Testing QCD through Spin Observables in Nuclear Targets'' which will be held at the University of Virginia, Charlottesville, Virginia from April 18 -- 20, 2002. A website has been established and all subsequent information about the workshop will be posted there. The invited speakers for the three plenary sessions are listed in the web site. In addition there will be eight parallel sessions for contributed papers, on topics which include:
  1. Exclusive and Semi-inclusive Asymmetries
    Convenors: S. Liuti and O. Rondon
  2. Spin in few body interactions
    Convenors: J. P. Chen and W. Melnitchouk
  3. New Initiatives Convenor: Donal Day
  4. Nuclear Targets and Sources Convenor: D. Crabb
Abstracts for contributed papers to these sessions or on other topics should be sent to the convenors or to the chairmen of the organizing committee, Don Crabb and Donal Day as postscript or pdf attachments. Contributed talks will be 15 - 20 minutes in length and the deadline for abstracts is March 15, 2002.

A registration fee of $240 will be charged to those who register by March 15, 2002. After this date the registration fee will be $275. The registration will be on-line with payment by check, Mastercard or Visa. The registration fee includes a copy of the proceedings, workshop banquet ticket, welcoming reception, a box lunch on the last day and refreshments at the breaks.

Blocks of rooms at several hotels in the area have been reserved at advantageous rates. Registrants should contact the hotels directly and mention the QCD Workshop to get these rates. A list of the hotels with phone numbers, rates and deadlines are listed on the web site. Registrants are encouraged to contact the hotel of choice as early as possible; after the deadline it may be difficult to obtain hotel rooms because of a sporting event being held in the area. Accompanying persons will be able to purchase Banquet tickets and a private tour to Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson, is available if demand is adequate, for an extra fee.

All sessions of the workshop will be held in Zehmer Hall on the grounds of the University. Interactive maps of the University can be found here}. Other travel information will be posted the workshop web site. As mentioned in the first circular a child care service offered by the University of Virginia will be available.

Looking forward to seeing you in Charlottesville in April,

Donald Crabb and Donal Day
