It is obvious that a strong showing of support and input from the Hadronic Physics community (and in particular the Jefferson Lab community) will be tremendously important. At this point, UGBoD is collecting your input on how to best organize this town meeting (and what to do to prepare for it). Please send your suggestions and comments to skuhn@odu.edu (UGBoD chair). In particular, please comment on the following ideas and suggestions:
+
 
+
* Should we merge this town meeting with the Jefferson Lab User Group Satellite meeting that is usually held during DNP? Note that our topic "Hadronic Physics" is of course more general than just Jefferson Lab - RHIC spin, Drell-Yan at Fermilab, and US groups participating at HERMES, COMPASS, LHC, FAIR, J-PARC...) are part of this "theme". (Did I forget anything?)
+
* What role should the Topical Group for Hadronic Physics of the APS play?
+
* Should there be a presentation and discussion of the 12 GeV White Paper (which until recently was available for your comments)? This may be "too late" to be of much practical use.
+
* Should we follow the format of previous NSAC town meetings (although this is NOT a long-range plan) with both "invited summary presentations" and the opportunity for anyone who so wishes to show one (or at most 2-3) slides?
+
* What should the "product" of this town meeting be? Realistically, it will be impossible to write (yet another) white paper in time for the Friday plenary town meeting. However, I (or someone else) could give a summary/overview of the points made during "our" town meeting.
+
* How should people that cannot attend the town meeting be represented? E.g., should I collect slides from them to show?
+
 
+
Finally, is there anything else we should do BEFORE this town meeting in October? Note that the Heavy Ion, Fundamental Symmetries, and Computational Physics communities are all holding their own, separate town meetings in July/August. Should there be a more Jefferson Lab -- specific meeting in, say, September? What would be the agenda and the format of such a meeting? Since we already have a white paper, what should the outcome be?

Friday Town Meeting with NSAC Tribble Subcommittee Preceded by Thursday Mini-Town Meetings


As part of the DNP fall meeting (24-27 Oct., Newport Beach), there was an extended Town meeting on Friday evening with discussion of the activities of the NSAC subcommittee chaired by Bob Tribble. In addition, there were 4 mini-Town meetings for members of nuclear physics subfields to solicit public input, hold discussions, and prepare for the Friday meeting. The mini-Town Meetings were held Thursday evening, 25 Oct., during the time period 6-10PM. The contact persons for the 4 town meetings, corresponding to the 4 major research areas of nuclear physics. are:

        Nuclear structure/astrophysics - Brad Sherrill
        Hadronic physics - Sebastian Kuhn
        RHIC physics - Paul Sorensen and Xin-Nian Wang
        Fund. Symmetries and Neutrinos - Alan Poon, David Hertzog, and Takeyasu Ito

Background information for the Hadronic Physics Town Meeting at DNP2012

As indicated above, there was a 4 hour long "mini town meeting" on "Hadronic Physics" for input to the NSAC subcommittee considering the implementation of the present Nuclear Physics Long Range Plan. The meeting website is at https://www.jlab.org/indico/conferenceDisplay.py?confId=21. The first hour replaced our usual "Users Group Satellite Meeting" which we hold at every APS Spring and DNP Fall meeting. The remaining 3 hours involved the broader hadronic community. The presentations can be found at This Website.

It is obvious that a strong showing of support and input from the Hadronic Physics community (and in particular the Jefferson Lab community) continues to be tremendously important. For more information, see also our page on NSAC subcommittee feedback.
