Wen-Chen Chang, Jen-Chieh Peng, Shin'ya Sawada, and other people have been studying on a possible proposal. We discus topics on high-energy hadron physics, especially on exclusive (and inclusive) Drell-Yan, ... and related topics at this meeting. You may also join this meeting if you are interested in the topic. * We expect to have this meeting at 13:00-17:00 on March 12. ------------------------------------------------ -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The workshop on hadron physics with high-momentum hadron beams at J-PARC in 2015 will be held from March 13 to March 16, 2015 at KEK, Tsukuba, Japan. This workshop is intended to discuss possible hadron-physics projects by using the high-momentum beamline at J-PARC. The high-momentum hadron beam was financially approved by the Japanese government in 2013, and it is expected to be ready in 2016. We list some physics topics in the following "Possible hadron-physics topics"; however, any interesting new ideas are welcome from both theorists and experimentalists. If you are interested in participating in the workshop, ***** please register by February 6, 2015 ***** especially because the KEK dormitory will be crowded in the middle of March, 2015. We are looking forward to seeing you at the workshop. Sincerely, Shunzo Kumano, Osamu Morimatsu, Kyoichiro Ozawa, Shin'ya Sawada (KEK) =========================================================================== ---------------------- 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 construction of the beamline has been started. ------------------------------ Possible hadron-physics topics ------------------------------ The following list is just an example of possible projects. We welcome new ideas on the projects. * high-energy exclusive processes (GPD, quark counting, ...) * pQCD, partonic structure of nucleon and nuclei, spin physics * charmed-hadron physics, intrinsic charm and strange * hadron properties in nuclear medium * quark/hadron interactions in nuclear medium * related theoretical developments * other ideas on possible projects For getting a rough idea of discussion topics, you may look at the previous workshop In the workshop of 2015, we expect to focus more on each topic toward new proposals or updates of proposals, especially on (1) high-energy hadron physics (exclusive reactions, nucleon structure) (2) charm-production cross sections and spectroscopy (3) mass modifications and possible relation to chiral symmetry restoration. -------------------------------- Scientific program (preliminary) -------------------------------- The scientific program consists of invited talks. Please look at a tentative speaker list on the workshop web which will becomes a preliminary program in the near future. The talk titles are tentative ones, and the preliminary schedule could be changed including talk time. *** Please check the home page for future update.*** Registration: 9:00 on March 13 (Friday) The first session starts at between 9:30-10:00.
