Workshop on physics opportunities with proton beams at FAIR accelerator SIS100


The workshop „Physics Opportunities with Proton Beams at SIS100” was held recently in Wuppertal. It was organized by the Helmholtz Research Academy Hesse for FAIR (HFHF), GSI/FAIR together with the Bergische Universität Wuppertal and the NRW-FAIR network. About 90 participants attended the three-day event and with 43 invited talks. Professor Birgitta Wolff, Rector of Bergische Universität Wuppertal, and Professor Paolo Giubellino, Scientific Managing Director of GSI and FAIR, welcomed the participants.

The workshop brought together experts working in the field of proton induced interactions, and explored possibilities for exciting physics at the SIS100 accelerator at FAIR. The overarching aim was to identify synergies among the various theoretical and experimental endeavors that leverage complementary techniques and methodologies with the aspiration to nurture a thriving, collaborative community. The topics addressed at the meeting included: open- and hidden-charm production in elementary reactions, charm content of the proton, emergent hadron mass and QCD trace anomaly studies, gravitational form factors and gluonic mass radius of the proton, hyperon production, spectroscopy and structure, hyperon-baryon interactions via femtoscopy and partial-wave analysis, hadronic production mechanisms as reference for nuclear modification factors, search and line-shape measurements of exotic forms of baryonic-like matter.
