Workshop on Parton Distributions in the 21st Century
November 18 - 20, 2004

The aims of this workshop are to discuss open theoretical and phenomenological questions related to parton distribution functions, and to outline future experimental programs to address these questions.

Some of the topics to be covered include flavor and spin asymmetries in parton distributions, nuclear effects in structure functions, and the transition to the low-Q2 and resonance regions.
