After clicking on this link, you will be prompted to enter your password. Once your IPa-account is created, you are able to login and sign up for the program of your choice within the list of all the IPa-programs, either by clicking here [login], or by using the login button at the top-right hand corner of this page.
The workshop 'Exploring QCD with Tagged Processes' will be held at Institut Pascal of the University Paris-Saclay from the 14th of September to the 23rd of October 2020.
The topics to be discussed will cover a wide field including all high energy nuclear reactions where nuclear fragments are detected, both with hadronic and leptonic probes. The goal of this program is to elicit detailed discussion on various aspects of the field, from the detector technologies to the theoretical treatment of the tagged processes. It will include discussions about key issues such as the few-body and many-body break-ups of the nucleus, the mesonic content of nuclei and nucleons, development of models describing final state interactions in semi-inclusive (deep) inelastic processes, incorporating the description of the short-range structure of the nucleus with the calculation of high energy scattering processes, as well as modeling hadronization processes that can be studied with tagging.
The 6-week program is intended for a relatively light schedule allowing much discussion and work time in the weeks 1, 3, 4 and 6. Two topical workshops with denser schedules are planned for weeks 2 and 5. The intended topics for the different weeks are as follows:
• 14 to 18 Sept. 2020 (Week 1): Many body tagging, hadronization and measuring centrality in AA, pA and eA
• 21 to 25 Sept. 2020 (Week 2): Experimental progress to measure tagged processes, in fixed target and collider settings
• 28 Sept to 2 Oct. 2020 (Week 3): Tagging light nuclei to understand nuclear effects
• 5 to 9 Oct. 2020 (Week 4): Tagging light nuclei to access pion, kaon and neutron structure
• 12 to 16 Oct 2020 (Week 5): The future of tagging in fixed and collider kinematics
• 19 to 23 Oct 2020 (Week 6): Treating final state interactions in tagged processes
Support for attendance will be available, with a strong emphasis on promoting the participation of graduate students and postoctoral associates.
