It will be preceded on Thursday July 26th and July 27th by the EIC Generic Detector R&D Meeting. The Electron-Ion Collider (EIC) is a proposed facility to study hadron physics at high energy recommended by the 2015 Long Range Plan for Nuclear Science by the NSAC. The EIC User Group (EICUG) promotes the realization of the EIC and its science, and consists of over 700 scientists. The meeting will discuss the outcome of the National Academic of Science study and the path forward for the Electron-Ion Collider, as well as recent developments and progress on novel physics ideas and technical plans for the collider and detectors.
