On March 2021, Brookhaven National Laboratory and Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility JLab together issued a call for Collaboration Proposals for Detectors at the EIC with proposals due by Wednesday, December 1, 2021. The EIC user community has been very active to answer the call and three proto-collaborations have formed and are planning to submit proposals.
BNL and JLab have appointed the EIC Detector Proposal Advisory Panel, a scientific-technical committee of renowned and independent subject matter experts, that will advise BNL and JLab on how to realize an optimal set of experimental equipment at the EIC capable of addressing the science case of the EIC White Paper and NAS Report. The process includes a second, follow up meeting on January 19-21, 2022, https://indico.jlab.org/event/504/where the proto-collaborations will address the questions from the panel. The process is expected to be completed around March 1, 2022, and a report will be made publicly available.
Part 1: Overview of key points, addressing the science requirements in the Call for Proposals, the conceptual realization of the detector given the technology choices, and expected performance via simulation studies.
Part 2: Describe the collaboration structure, the proposed schedule and cost (including potential sources of non-project funding and assumptions), the R&D needs and risks, and potential upgrade paths.
