Physics Opportunities at an ElecTron-Ion Collider workshop, Jyväskylä, 2nd-5th September 2013

Welcome to POETIC IV, the International Workshop on the "Physics Opportunities at an ElecTron-Ion Collider" that will take place at the University of Jyväskylä Department of Physics from Monday September 2nd to Thursday September 5th 2013. The primary goal of this workshop is to continue advancing the field of electron ion collider physics, following the efforts of the INT 2010 fall program and workshops at Stellenbosch, Bloomington and Valparaiso.

While the central theme of the workshop will be the physics of an electron ion collider, the workshop will also cover the strongly related physics at the CEBAF, RHIC, and LHC experimental programs. The workshop will aim primarily at developments on the theory/phenomenology side, but experimental progress will also be addressed.

The workshop will cover topical issues at the frontiers of hadron structure and explore outstanding questions. The topics discussed will include QCD at high parton densities and small x evolution, the properties of colored probes in cold and hot nuclear matter, helicity distributions, transverse momentum dependent parton distributions (TMDs), generalized parton distributions (GPDs), multi-parton correlations, beyond the Standard Model physics, connections to other areas in physics, and novel theoretical developments.
