Precision Electron Beam Polarimetry
for the Electron Ion Collider

August 23-24, 2007
hosted by the University of Michigan, Department of Physics
450 Church St., Ann Arbor, MI 48109-1040

Workshop summary

A number of measurements at the future electron-ion collider (EIC) will require unprecedented precision in the determination of the electron and light-ion beam polarization. This workshop will explore and study the electron beam polarimetry issues associated with the EIC to achieve about 1% (relative [delta P/P]) precision in polarization determination. At this workshop we hope to facilitate the exchange of ideas among electron polarimetry experts and accelerator designers to examine existing and novel electron beam polarization measurement schemes.

We invite contributions that address this future challenge through novel electron polarimeter concepts. If you wish to make a presentation, please contact the organizers and submit your abstract by July 23, 2007.
