As part of the third physics pillar (“Physics at the Luminosity Frontier”) of the original Electron-Ion Collider (EIC) white paper, Electroweak Physics gives us the possibility to study topics that have a much broader appeal in the Physics community.
Nearly a decade ago at a workshop at William & Mary, the opportunities for studying electroweak physics at the EIC were explored. At that time the parameters of the collider were still in flux and the detector design still in early stages. Since then the focus of the EIC community has largely been on QCD and nuclear processes. Now is an opportune time to re-evaluate the prospects for studying electroweak processes at the EIC. The goal of the
proposed adhoc meeting would be to reinvigorate the efforts of the electroweak community in the detector development for the electron-ion collider and to re-engage with the broader EIC community so that we can take full advantage of the recent developments (in particular in simulations working group).
Due to the COVID-19 virus, we will hold the workshop online using 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.
