Workshop on AGS Experiments
For the 21st Century

13-17 May 1996

Co-sponsored by Brookhaven National Laboratory and the Department of Energy

By the year 2000, the AGS will be able to provide intensities exceeding 10^14 protons/pulse. Since the accelerator will be used only for about two hours per day as an injector to RHIC, the balance of the time could be made available for other physics purposes. As the highest intensity proton synchrotron in the world, the AGS could be the ideal facility for precision measurements and the study of rare processes in particle and nuclear physics. To explore and promote this possibility, the AGS-2000 Workshop, co-sponsored by Brookhaven and the U.S. Department of Energy, Division of High Energy Physics, will bring together scientists who would like to pursue the potential of such a facility. All interested parties are encouraged to participate.

The goal of AGS-2000 is to identify the best physics that can be performed with the AGS complex during the first decade of the next century. The Workshop will focus on a limited number of highly competitive new experiments. The aim of the Workshop is to produce a number of reports describing potential experiments for the AGS and to identify scientists who would like to pursue the development of complete proposals.

Topics identified so far are listed below. New initiatives are actively sought. The Workshop will be held at Brookhaven National Laboratory from May 13th to 17th, 1996 with registration taking place on the evening of May 12th. There is a $100 registration fee to defray expenses of the Symposium and publication of the proceedings.
