Dennis has graciously agreed to chaperone us. If you attend (most of you, I hope) please pay Stephanie the standard 9 $ contribution

G M n, x>2 and WACs probably can B(Q 2 ), 4 He(e,ep), deuteron threshold definitely can not

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 Hall A has been running now for 10+ years, with an average publication output of 4+. Essential that more effort goes into publications, especially archival pubs Top cited Hall A publications: , Please enter all publications into the JLab publication data base on submission

Even if we do get PB08, the present budget allocation to Physics implies a ~200 k$ cut for Hall A. If that sticks, lab management has been informed that we will have to delay the start-up of transversity by 5 weeks. All of this means that the beam schedule can only be trusted through May 2008.

7 Hall A collaboration meeting, Junr 21-22, 2007, 7 Operated by the Jefferson Science Associates for the U.S. Department Of Energy Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility Hall A Schedule (Very Tentative!) Max energy Qweak will run at is GeV (maybe GeV, then 5 pass ~ 5.7 GeV) Accelerator needs 6 month down prior to the 12 GeV installation

8 Hall A collaboration meeting, Junr 21-22, 2007, 8 Operated by the Jefferson Science Associates for the U.S. Department Of Energy Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility 6 GeV Energy Recovery Plan Today

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 CEBAF will be limited to ~33 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 still has 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 and polarization. Also, resources, both capital and designers, will become scarcer as the 12 GeV activities increase. PAC-33 is last 6 GeV PAC. Summer 2008 PAC will be charged to evaluate long- term schedule (that means that we need to have one by then!)

10 Hall A collaboration meeting, Junr 21-22, 2007, 10 Operated by the Jefferson Science Associates for the U.S. Department Of Energy Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility 12 GeV 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 Summary Hall A continues to have a very active and successful research program, but running the 6 GeV program will continue under serious pressure. Vocalize your concerns when you feel the need. Also, make our achievements known to the scientific community through timely publications. Have to start discussions about the form of the Hall A collaboration in the 12 GeV era. LRP report writing process practically completed, expect final report shortly. Please use your vote in the ongoing DNP election process
