Jefferson Lab

Newport News, Virginia

We are pleased to announce that the First Backward-Angle (u-channel) Physics Workshop will be held September 21-22 at Jefferson Lab, Newport News, VA.

The objectives of the workshop are as follows:
* Offer a platform to connect scattered experiment and theory efforts together,  thus, potentially forming small backward-angle physics working groups.
* Generate discussions on the implications the backward-angle physics and probe the physics case for a systematic backward-angle physics research program.

* Inspire future backward-angle physics data mining or dedicated studies, including the JLab 12 GeV program, and PANDA/FAIR.

* Discuss the feasibility of including backward-angle physics in the EIC scientific program.

The scientific program is expected to comprise roughly 15 talks, followed by a group discussion on the Tuesday afternoon.  A social dinner is planned for the evening of Monday day, September 21.

More detailed information, as it is finalized, will be found at the meeting website:

Please mark your calendars, and do not hesitate to contact any of us if you are interested in contributing a talk.

We hope to see you there!
