The Electron Ion Collider User Group Meeting (EICUGM) will take place from Monday July 30th to Thursday August 2nd, 2018. It will be preceded on Sunday July 29th by a Workshop on Detectors and Technology.

The EICUGM will feature introductory and agency talks, including international views, and discuss the outcome of the National Academy of Science study and the path forward for the Electron-Ion Collider. The meeting will further include recent developments and progress on novel physics ideas and technical plans for the collider and detectors, as well as four parallel sessions. The last day will be dedicated to wrap-up including summaries and EICUGM business meeting, discussions and further outlook/organization. For contributed abstracts to the parallel sessions, please contact the session conveners.

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 well over 700 scientists. Further information about the EIC User Group.
