Second circular
KEK theory center workshop on
Hadron physics with high-momentum hadron beams at J-PARC in 2013

January 15 - 18, 2013, KEK, Tsukuba, Japan
Kobayashi Hall, 1st Floor, Kenkyu-Honkan (15th, 18th)
Seminar Hall, 1st Floor, 3rd building (16th, 17th)


The workshop on "Hadron physics with high-momentum hadron beams at J-PARC
in 2013" will be held from January 15 to January 18, 2013 at KEK, Tsukuba,
Japan. This workshop is intended to discuss possible hadron-physics
projects by using the high-momentum beamline at J-PARC and related

The high-momentum beamline is now considered as one of the highest 
priority projects at KEK from the Japanese fiscal year of 2013.
In order to maximize physics output from this beamline, we organize
this workshop for discussing possible hadron and nuclear physics

If you are interested in participating in the workshop,
***** please register at your earliest convenience *****
especially because the KEK dormitory will be crowded
in the middle of January, 2013.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the workshop.

Sincerely, Shunzo Kumano, Osamu Morimatsu, Shin'ya Sawada (KEK)

Expected high-momentum beamline
The high-momentum beamline can transport the primary proton beam (30 GeV)
with the intensity of 10^10 - 10^12/sec to the Hadron Hall, and it is 
a branch from the main proton beam of 10^13 or 10^14/sec. In addition,
by installing a thin production target into the main proton beam 
at the branching point, one can obtain unseparated secondary beams
such as pions etc. The beam intensity of these secondaries depends
on its species and momentum. A typical intensity for 10 GeV/c (15 GeV/c)
pions would be in the order of 10^7/sec (10^6/sec) or so. The intensity 
for higher momentum beams would be less. The budget for the beamline is
being requested to the Japanese government by KEK. In the earliest case
if the budget request is approved very soon, the construction will
start in 2013 and it will be completed in 2016. 

Possible hadron-physics topics
The following list is just an example of possible projects.
We welcome new ideas on the projects.
* hadron properties in nuclear medium
* pQCD, partonic structure of nucleon and nuclei
* charmed-hadron physics
* exotic hadrons and nuclei
* N* physics (N*, Delta*, ...)
* high-energy spin physics
* short-range NN correlations
* transition from hadron to quark degrees of freedom
* exclusive processes (GPD, quark counting, ...)
* quark/hadron interactions in nuclear medium
* J/psi production mechanisms and its interactions in nuclear medium
* pion distribution amplitude, hadron-transition distribution amplitudes
* intrinsic charm and strange
* related theoretical developments
* other ideas on possible projects
