Motivation & Plans

Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) is the fundamental theory of strong interactions which explains much of the observable matter in the universe. In the past decade there has been great progress in our understanding of hadron structure in the framework of QCD at high energies and its extrapolations of properties of the theory at extreme temperatures and densities. These studies have been greatly aided by increasingly sophisticated ab initio QCD calculations. Further progress in understanding the fundamental structure of matter will require upgrades of current facilities, and new accelerators & detectors in the future.

A workshop is planned at Brookhaven National Laboratory on July 17-22, 2006. It is the third workshop in the series of EIC workshops, with significantly expanded scope to include broader aspects of QCD. Its purpose is to take stock of the dramatic progress in the recent explorations of QCD and to refine the scientific case & experimental requirements for the next generation of frontier studies in QCD at high energies. The first two days of this workshop will be dedicated to developments in accelerator technology, followed by the next four days with a focus on the physics and detector related issues. Significant time will be set aside for discussions.

Please mark your calendars. We hope you will attend this workshop and participate in formulating the future directions in QCD at high energy.
