This event is part of the CFNS workshop/ad-hoc meeting series. See the CFNS conferences page for other events.

Perturbative quantum chromodynamics (pQCD) provides a systematically improvable approach to study the dynamics of the strong interaction. It successfully describes data from high energy experiments across a wide range of energy scales and in various collision systems. However, much of the theoretical uncertainty in realistic calculations comes from the inaccurate model description of non-perturbative (np) effects in the low energy regime. These np effects present themselves in lepton-lepton, lepton-hadron and hadron-hadron collisions, with substantial overlap in their phase space along with a distinct set of contributions for each system. Manifestation of the np effects exists in the initial state of the parton/nucleon distributions and also persists in the final state via target fragmentation and hadronization. The goal of this workshop is to aggregate current knowledge related to np effects across systems in order to brainstorm novel measurements at the EIC to investigate the fundamental transition from p-np QCD, utilizing collinear energy flows of jets, heavy flavor (HF) hadrons and target fragments. This workshop proposes an initiative that brings together theorists and experimentalists towards envisioning a collective framework, conceptually and via observables, that are aimed at understanding npQCD.

In this 4-day workshop, we will focus on Jet substructure, Heavy-Flavor, Initial State & Spin Physics and EIC Prospects, On each day we have experimental talks on various collision systems, summary talks contrasting different systems, and theory talks on np effects and p-np transition.
