POETIC6, the 6th edition of the International Conference on the "Physics Opportunities at an ElecTron-Ion Collider", will take place at Ecole Polytechnique in Palaiseau, France from Monday, September 7th to Friday, September 11th 2015, a few weeks before the National Science Advisory Committee recommends a new Long Range Plan to the United States' DOE and NSF. The primary goal is to continue the advancement of the field of electron-ion collider physics. It is co-chaired by Cyrille Marquet (CPHT) and Franck Sabatié (Irfu/SPhN) and partially funded by the DOE through Jefferson Lab and BNL, the P2IO consortium, CEA/Saclay and Ecole Polytechnique.
While the central theme of the conference will be the physics of a future electron-ion collider, the workshop will also cover strongly-related physics in the CEBAF, RHIC, and LHC experimental programs. The conference will aim primarily at developments on the theory/phenomenology side, but the latest accelerator and experimental developments of interest will also be reviewed. It will foster exchanges between theory, phenomenology and experiment.
