The workshop "TMDs: Towards a Synergy between Lattice QCD and Global Analyses" is supported by the BNL EIC Theory Institute and Center for Frontiers in Nuclear Science, Stony Brook University. The workshop will take place from June 21 to 23, 2023 at Stony Brook University at Stony Brook, NY, USA. This workshop aims at bringing the lattice, phenomenology and experimental communities together to make advances in the extraction of TMDs. The topics of interest include how to incorporate the lattice results into the Collins-Soper-Sterman factorization framework to help improve the global fits, identify the TMD observables for lattice studies, and benchmark the precision for each observable.

The scientific goals of this workshop align well with the Electron-Ion Collider (EIC), which is expected to provide the most precise measurement of the 3D structure of the proton and nuclei. Lattice QCD calculations can determine: the non-perturbative Collins-Soper kernel, the spin-dependent TMDs, light-flavor separation of TMDs, for both quarks and gluons. These will help the global analyses for the unpolarized, helicity and transiversity TMDs at the EIC, thus improving the extraction of the 3D proton structure. In particular, the lattice calculation of time-reversal-odd TMDs such as the Sivers and Boer-Mulders function will offer useful insight on the test of universality, spin-orbit correlations, and multi-parton correlations, which are of great interest to the single transverse spin experiments at the EIC.

This meeting is intended as an in-person event, and talks are by invitation only. The presentations will be broadcasted via Zoom (password via email to registered participants).

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