Testing QCD through Spin Observables in Nuclear Targets
Sponsored by Jefferson Lab, the International Spin Physics Committee, and the Institute of Nuclear and Particle Physics at the University of Virginia.
University of Virginia, Charlottesville, Virginia
April 18, 19 and 20, 2002
The motivation for the workshop is to explore issues
in QCD that might be resolved through spin observables in nuclear targets,
and the effects of the nuclear medium on the spin properties of the bound nucleon.
We are planning to have 4 invited talks each morning and
have two parallel sessions in the afternoons with shorter (15'-20') talks
designed to stimulate discussion in a more informal environment.
The topics to be included in the workshop are:
- Extraction of spin structure functions and form factors of the nucleon. from d, 3He, 6Li, 7Li etc.
- EMC effect in polarized scattering.
- Spin Physics of the Deuteron.
- Semi-inclusive asymmetries.
- Transverse spin effects.
- Polarized local duality.
- Exclusive Deeply Virtual Compton Scattering.
- Deeply virtual meson production.
- Polarized Beams and Targets.
- Polarized hyperon production and spin asymmetries.
The workshop is open to all, but will be limited to about 100 participants, due to the size of available rooms. A web site is being prepared which will allow on-line registration and provide further details of the program.
Blocks of rooms in local hotels have been reserved and registrants can reserve rooms by dealing directly with the hotel.
A registration fee will be charged that will include the Workshop dinner, refreshments at breaks, and a copy of the Workshop proceedings.
Tours of local attractions for accompanying persons can be arranged if there is sufficient demand.
It is expected that there will be a child care service offered by the University of Virginia.
