An International Workshop on Electron-Ion Collider Physics will take place from 30 January through 3 February, 2012 at the Stellenbosch Institute for Advanced Study (STIAS).


This workshop will cover saturation and its measurement; parton densities, nuclear spin and angular momentum, and generalized and transverse momentum parton distribution functions; constraints on initial energy-density formation and connecting initial conditions to hydrodynamics in heavy ion collisions.
