TITLE: RHIC Spin program overview,


SPEAKER: Prof. Alexander Bazilevsky (BNL)

CONTACT: Prof. Shunzo Kumano,


RHIC as the only in the world polarized proton-proton collider continues providing data to help to elucidate the spin structure of the proton and to study QCD dynamics at a high energy scale. It offers unique and complementary approaches for these studies, compared to Deep Inelastic Scattering experiments. I will summarize achievements of the RHIC Spin program and their impact on our understanding of the nucleon spin structure on partonic level, and transverse spin phenomena.\x{00a0} I will also outline the near and longer term plans and experimental upgrades to further advance spin studies at RHIC.
