DSPIN-17 Workshop was started

News, 11 September 2017

Today, on 11 September 2017, the 17th Workshop on High Energy Spin Physics (DSPIN-17) was started in Dubna in the Bogoliubov Laboratory of Theoretical Physics JINR.

This traditional Workshop is held every two years in Dubna in the interim between the two major symposiums on spin physics and brings together theoretical physicists and experimentalists from different countries, dealing with the spin of elementary particles. This year, 110 scientists from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Slovakia, the UK, and the USA came to participate in the Workshop. During the five days of the Workshop participants will hear about 90 scientific reports.

The scientific programme of the Workshop includes: recent experimental data on spin physics, the nucleon spin structure and GPD’s, spin physics and QCD, spin physics in the Standard Model and beyond, T-odd spin effects, polarization and heavy ion physics, spin in gravity and astrophysics, the future spin physics facilities, spin physics at NICA, polarimeters for high energy polarized beams, acceleration and storage of polarized beams, the new polarization technology, spintronics of nanostructures, and some related subjects.

The Workshop was organized by the Bogoliubov Laboratory of Theoretical Physics JINR with the support of the Heisenberg – Landau Programme of JINR and German Ministry for Science and Technology (BMBF), the Russian Foundation for Basic Research, European Physical Society, the Votruba – Blokhintsev Programme, the Bogolubov – Infeld Programme, and the National Research Nuclear University MEPhI.

Spin pshysics research

Spin physics studies are carried out at CERN in the frames of the LHC experiments and the COMPASS experiment at the SPS extracted beams, as well as at the Experimental Storage Ring of FAIR (GSI, Darmstadt, Germany). In the United States of America, three scientific centers are involved in this research theme: the BNL on Long Island, New York, the Jefferson Lab in Newport News, Virginia and the Fermilab in Chicago, Illinois. In the future, the research will be conducted at the new accelerator complex NICA in Dubna.
