Workshop on Hadron Structure at J-PARC

 

November 30 - December 2, 2005, KEK, Tsukuba, Japan

 

The workshop on Hadron Structure at J-PARC will be held from November 30 to December 2 at KEK, Tsukuba, Japan. There is also a satellite workshop on November 29 for discussing the machine development of polarized proton beam at J-PARC. The J-PARC is an accelerator complex with a 50 GeV main ring for high-intensity proton beam (http://jkj.tokai.jaeri.go.jp/index-e.html) now under construction at Tokai, Japan.

 

The first two days will be dedicated to the physics discussion mainly on hard processes. The topics include, but not limited to

     * dimuon measurements with and without polarized proton beam,

     * hadron/photon production with and without polarized proton beam,

     * other hard processes with the proton beam,

     * hadron-structure studies with neutrino beam.

The third day will be dedicated to other J-PARC topics such as

     * hadron spectroscopy, exotic hadrons,

     * hadron properties in nuclear medium.

 

We have invited leading scientists from all over the world on the subjects, and the list of confirmed speakers includes,

    * Robert L. Jaffe (MIT),

    * Stan Brodsky (SLAC), and

    * Mark Strikman (Penn State).

Other leading physicists are being contacted. We believe we can release the full list in the second circular.

 

We would also like to invite contributed talks on both experimental and theoretical studies on the relevant subjects. We hope to have many contributed talks to maximize the outcome from the newly constructed machine, J-PARC. We have some funds to cover domestic travel especially to encourage graduate students and postdocs.

 

The second circular will be distributed in September, and it includes detailed information on practical matters such as registration, housing, etc. The workshop web page will be announced in the second circular.
