 Abstract:

Understanding the emergence of nuclei within QCD is a key challenge for modern science,
yet in the 40-plus years since the advent of QCD clear evidence for novel quark and gluon
effects in nuclei has been lacking. Nuclear physics approaches where the Hamiltonian is
comprised of hadronic states have had significant success in describing the properties of
nuclei across the chart of nuclides, with this success likely connected with color confinement
in QCD. However, because QCD is the fundamental theory of the strong interaction, it is
unlikely that these hadron-level approaches can remain valid, or contain the correct degrees
of freedom, for all processes at all energy scales. Clearly identifying these scales and
processes is key to exposing the role of quarks and gluons in nuclei and thereby developing
an understanding of how nuclei emerge within QCD. This workshop will explore these ideas
by bringing together nuclear physicists from both the hadronic and QCD degrees of freedom
perspectives. Discussions will review the best evidence we currently have for novel quark
and gluon effects in nuclei, such as the EMC effect and the possible quenching of the
Coulomb sum rule, and then explore what may be learned through processes such as parityviolating,
spin-dependent, and tagged DIS; neutrino and nucleon knock-out reactions; and
ultimately developing a quark and gluon tomography of nuclei which is provided by their
GPDs and TMDs. Such discussions are important for the Jefferson Lab and relativistic
heavy-ion programs, the QCD programs at FAIR and Fermilab, neutrino experiments, and
the design of a future electron-ion collider.

ECT* - European Centre for Theoretical Studies in Nuclear Physics and Related Areas

                  

The European Centre for Theoretical Studies in Nuclear Physics and Related Areas (ECT*) in Trento (Italy) provides a dedicated and structured combination of scientific activities for a large international scientific community. ECT* acts as an "intellectual" centre of competence, complementary in scope and activities to existing research facilities based at universities or experimental laboratories. It promotes coordination of European research efforts in nuclear physics and related research areas.
