Exploring Hadron Structure with Tagged Structure Functions
January 16-18, 2014
Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility
Newport News, VA
New experimental techniques are being developed to create effective neutron, pion, and other tagged targets from nucleon and nuclear targets and beams. The effective meson targets in particular open the opportunity to uniquely probe the structure and composition of the nucleon sea. The goal of the Workshop is to first review the status of our current understanding of the mesonic and sea components of nucleons, followed by discussions of key and potential experiments at various existing and future facilities, and finally to address outstanding unresolved theoretical issues in this subject.
The success and open issues of various theoretical approaches, including those based on lattice QCD, light-front methods, chiral symmetry, nonperturbative models and perturbative QCD, will be discussed at this Workshop. The meeting will also aim to identify new experiments which
could effectively test these approaches, using in particular novel tagged beam and target configurations, in addition to other techniques at existing or future facilities.
