Average time from completion of experiment to submission 20 months with 75% within 3 years. At present 5 experiments that have not submitted a manuscript more than 3 years after completion Essential that more effort goes into publications, especially archival pubs Hall A has been running now for 10 years! Please enter all publications into the JLab publication data base on submission

This will remain for the outyears with possible additional constraints driven by the need for engineering and design manpower for 12 GeV and limitations in capital funds.

9 Hall A collaboration meeting, Junr 21-22, 2007, 9 Operated by the Jefferson Science Associates for the U.S. Department Of Energy Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility Long-Term Schedule Highly likely that CEBAF will be limited to ~30 weeks of beam on target in FY08 and following FYs as long as the budget continues as expected. This corresponds to a total of 4 months accelerator down per year. Based on these assumptions Hall A would still have a full year of running available for new proposals. However, for the last 18+ months before the accelerator down we would have to run in parallel with Qweak at a fixed energy/pass of 1.1 GeV and possibly severe restrictions in the available current (I have suggested to Larry to run Qweak at 150 µA in stead of the requested 180 µA). Also, resources, both capital and designers, will become scarcer as the 12 GeV activities increase. Larry has predicted that there will continue to be 6 GeV PACs until ~3 years prior to the 12 GeV shutdown. This would mean that there will be (at least) two more 6 GeV PACs (2008 and 2009).

Accelerator shutdown start mid 2012 Accelerator commissioning mid Pre-Ops (beam commissioning) Hall commissioning start late 2013 (based on funding guidance provided by DOE-NP in April 2007) 12 GeV Upgrade: Phases and Schedule

11 Hall A collaboration meeting, Junr 21-22, 2007, 11 Operated by the Jefferson Science Associates for the U.S. Department Of Energy Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility 12 GeV Schedule

12 Hall A collaboration meeting, Junr 21-22, 2007, 12 Operated by the Jefferson Science Associates for the U.S. Department Of Energy Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility LRP Recommendations 1.We recommend the completion of the 12 GeV Upgrade at Jefferson Lab. The Upgrade will enable new insights into the structure of the nucleon, the transition between the hadronic and quark/gluon descriptions of nuclei, and the nature of confinement. 2.We recommend the construction of the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams, FRIB, a world-leading facility for the study of nuclear structure, reactions and astrophysics. Experiments with the new isotopes produced at FRIB will lead to a comprehensive description of nuclei, elucidate the origin of the elements in the cosmos, provide an understanding of matter in the crust of neutron stars, and establish the scientific foundation for innovative applications of nuclear science to society. 3.We recommend a targeted program of experiments to investigate neutrino properties and fundamental symmetries. These experiments aim to discover the nature of the neutrino, yet unseen violations of time-reversal symmetry, and other key ingredients of the new standard model of fundamental interactions. Construction of a Deep Underground Science and Engineering Laboratory is vital to US leadership in core aspects of this initiative. 4.The experiments at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider have discovered a new state of matter at extreme temperature and density - a quark-gluon plasma that exhibits unexpected, almost perfect liquid dynamical behavior. We recommend implementation of the RHIC II luminosity upgrade, together with detector improvements, to determine the properties of this new state of matter.

13 Hall A collaboration meeting, Junr 21-22, 2007, 13 Operated by the Jefferson Science Associates for the U.S. Department Of Energy Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility LRP Recommendation #1 We recommend the completion of the 12 GeV Upgrade at Jefferson Lab. The Upgrade will enable new insights into the structure of the nucleon, the transition between the hadronic and quark/gluon descriptions of nuclei, and the nature of confinement. A fundamental challenge for modern nuclear physics is to understand the structure and interactions of nucleons and nuclei in terms of quantum chromodynamics. Jefferson Labs unique electron microscope has given the US leadership in addressing this challenge. Its first decade of research has already provided key insights into the structure of nucleons and the dynamics of finite nuclei. Doubling the energy of this microscope will enable three-dimensional imaging of the nucleon, revealing hidden aspects of its internal dynamics. It will complete our understanding of the transition between the hadronic and quark/gluon descriptions of nuclei, and test definitively the existence of exotic hadrons, long-predicted by QCD as arising from quark confinement. Through the use of parity violation, it will provide low-energy probes of physics beyond the Standard Model, complementing anticipated measurements at the highest accessible energy scales.

14 Hall A collaboration meeting, Junr 21-22, 2007, 14 Operated by the Jefferson Science Associates for the U.S. Department Of Energy Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility Summary Very successful outcome of LRP process, still a lot of work needed in writing the report. Provide all requested support. Running the 6 GeV program will continue under serious pressure. Vocalize your concerns when you feel the need. Have to start discussions about the form of the Hall A collaboration in the 12 GeV era Congratulations to Joe Katych and Xaohui Zhan for their winning posters All poster contributors are urged to provide copies of their posters Please use your vote in the ongoing DNP nomination process Support Curtis Meyer and Joerg Reinhold
