Under the coordination of the Electron-Ion Collider User Group (EICUG), the first meeting on the 2nd Detector at Interaction Region 8 (IR8) will take place Dec 6-8, 2022.
The meeting will be centered on two aspects of complementarity with Detector 1 (EPIC):
Cross checks of key measurements (and potential discoveries).
New opportunities enabled by unique features of a 2nd detector such as the 2nd focus in IR8.
A goal of this "incubator" meeting is to foster open discussions and exchanges in preparation for other upcoming activities, including a larger, in-person "kick-off" meeting in the spring of 2023.
Theorists and computational scientists participation is particularly welcome at this stage as we are looking to enhance theory/computation/experiment intersections and synergetic collaborations.
The meeting will be hosted by the Center for Frontiers in Nuclear Science (CFNS) at Stony Brook University. It will be run in a hybrid mode with remote access on Zoom that will be made available on the indico page
While we have selected a few discussion-leading talks, all members of the community are invited to participate in the meeting and to submit abstracts for 5 minutes flash talks. A program draft is available on indico where your abstracts can also be submitted.
