9th International Conference on Physics Opportunities at an ElecTron-Ion-Collider
POETIC 9, the Ninth International Conference on the ‘Physics Opportunities at an ElecTron-Ion Collider’, will take place at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Berkeley, USA, from Monday, September 16 to Thursday, September 19, 2019. The primary goal of the conference is to continue the advancement of the field of electron-ion collider physics.
Introductory lectures will be given during the morning of Monday, 16, i.e. before the start of the workshop, targeting physicists who are no experts yet but consider getting involved in EIC physics or similar initiatives.
Small scale satellite workshops can be organized for Thursday afternoon, September 19, and Friday, September 20, if there is interest. If so, the proponents of these satellite workshops/group meetings should contact the organizers of POETIC 9 as soon as possible.
The program will consist of invited and contributed talks. We strongly encourage the submission of abstracts. Postdocs and students are especially encouraged to attend the conference.
Structure of hadrons: (nuclear) parton distribuition functions (PDFs nPDFs), transverse momentum dependent (TMDs) and generalized parton distributions (GPDs), Distribution Amplitudes (DAs) , Double Distributions (DDs).
QCD at high parton densities and small-x: saturation, evolution, Color Glass Condensate
Fragmentation functions and Jet properties
Complementarity and connections of EIC physics with p+p, p+A and A+A collisions: high-pt processes, diffraction, multi-parton interactions, quark-gluon plasma and colored probes in hot nuclear matter.
Physics beyond the Standard Model and connections to other areas in physics.
Future DIS facilities: accelerator and detector developments.
