Physics opportunities with proton beams at SIS100


Tuesday, 6 February, 2024 to Friday, 9 February, 2024


Purpose of this workshop is to bring together experts working in the field of proton induced interactions, and to explore possibilities for exciting physics at the SIS100 accelerator at FAIR.

This workshop is a follow-up of a kick-off event that was held in June 2023 connected to the MESON2023 conference. For further details including an executive summary and slides that were presented, we refer to

Based on the outcome of the kick-off workshop, we identified the following topics we would wish to further explore to formulate an inspiring physics program:

  • 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 

The overarching aim of this workshop is 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.
