CFNS researcher, SBU/BNL Physicist Raju Venugopalan part of a collaboration to recieve a prestigious Simons Foundation grant 

A team of 13 principle investigators including Raju Venugopalan secured a grant from the Simons Foundation to study the "glue" that holds the visible universe together. The collaboation led by Igore Klebanov of Princeton University will bring together three communities of theorists specializing in the study of experimental data, computation and analytical approaches to QCD.

EIC Users Group meets at Stony Brook University for the 1st time in-person after the pandemic

The EIC Users Group (EICUG) met at Stony Brook University's Wang Center from July 26-29, 2022 for their summer meeting. It was th first in-person meeting of the UG since the pandemic. It was also the first meeting of the Users after the decision regarding the 1st detector was made by the Detector Project Advisory Panel (DPAP). During this meeting at Stony Brook the name of the 1st detector (Electron-Proton Ion Colider, EPIC) was decided. The first detector collaboration was formed. With more than 100 person attending in person, and more than 150 remote participants, this was a very fruitful meeting.  In-person participants also go to visit BNL and have a tour of the future location of the EPIC detector and the RHIC tunnel.

This important event was preceded by a meeting of the Early Career Scientists of the EICUG (EC EICUG)  hosted by CFNS on July 24-26, 2022. This meeting was supported by BNL, JLab and the EIC^{2} at Jefferson Lab.

 All talks, both for the EICUG and the EC EICUG  and pictures of events during the meeting and the dinner at "The Tavern On the Green, in NY City" are posted on the EICUG meeting's main web page page.

National Academy of Science Report on the US Based Electron-Ion Collider Released

The National Academy of Science (and Engineering and Medicine) has released their report evaluating the science case for the US based EIC. It affirms that "the science questions that an electron-ion collider (EIC) would answer are central to completing our understanding of atoms as well as being integral to the agenda of nuclear physics today. These questions about the fundamental building blocks of nuclei—neutrons and protons—and how they are held together in the nuclei of atoms, are compelling." ...
