Heavy flavor probes of the Quark-Gluon Plasma are required to realize the heavy-ion physics programs of the LHC and the new and final RHIC experimental program, sPHENIX. Both these facilities have heavy flavor physics as a priority, with a particularly strong focus on bottomonium and jet production, including heavy flavor jets at sPHENIX.

A precise understanding of nuclear reactions involved in hydrogen burning is a fundamental requirement for solar and stellar modeling. In the last decade, since the INT workshop Solar Fusion cross sections II took place, the need for accurate stellar and solar models has increased significantly. On the one hand, large-scale astronomical surveys have become the common place for studies of Galactic stellar populations, galactic archaeology, and characterization of exoplanet host stars, among other fields.  Moreover, the coming of age of asteroseismology, first with Kepler, now with TESS, and in the mid-term future with PLATO, allows us to study the interior of other stars in a way that had previously only been possible for the Sun.

This program is truly multidisciplinary as it addresses fundamental questions in fields as diverse as astrophysics, gravitational physics, nuclear physics, and particle physics. The program overarching goal is to capitalize on recent discoveries that have strengthened the connection between nuclear physics an astrophysics, particularly in the area of dense, neutron-rich matter. Among the recent highlights are the most precise determination of the neutron skin of neutron-rich nuclei using electroweak probes, the identification of the most massive neutron star to date, the simultaneous determination of the mass and radius of neutron stars, and the detection of gravitational waves from the binary merger of neutron stars.

The focus of this workshop to fully explore the physics presented by PVDIS and similar measurements with the Solenoid Large Intensity Device (SoLID) at JLab. This not only includes the electroweak standard model study, but also rich hadronic physics topics that can be explored in parallel with or in addition to the main PVDIS measurement. Precision study of some of these hadronic physics topics also ensure accurate interpretation of PVDIS results, such as through radiative corrections. Meanwhile, the prospect of a future positron beam at JLab and an energy upgrade to 24 GeV opens up new exploratory opportunities. By the end of the workshop, we hope to not only strengthen the planned SoLID PVDIS program, but also to expand to these additional topics that can be explored in the near future.

This workshop will address the question: How does the mass of the nucleon arise? Which is listed first among three high-priority science questions identified by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NAS) report titled An Assessment of U.S.-Based Electron-Ion Collider Science. To effectively address and understand the origin of the nucleon mass at an EIC, significant theoretical and experimental work remains. This workshop will continue to develop the science case around this high-priority science question, and help identify the concrete steps that need to be taken so that the EIC answers what is one of the most fundamental questions in modern science.

Following the joint gravitational wave and electromagnetic observations of the single binary neutron star merger GW170817, there is now strong evidence that neutron rich ejecta from neutron star mergers produces r- process elements. However, it is still not known if neutron star mergers are the dominant source of r-process elements in our galaxy.

Over the last decade there has been significant development in machine learning and artificial intelligence, with supervised and unsupervised computational learning tools now used routinely in scientific applications. Building on this progress, the focus of this program is on the use and future impacts of machine learning in nuclear theory, bringing together researchers with focuses in lattice QCD and statistical systems, hadron and nuclear structure, many-body theory, quantum computing, nuclear astrophysics, and hot and dense matter, to explore common interests in machine learning tools and applications.

In the next decade, an impressive experimental program will test the limits of the Standard Model (SM) and address the most pressing open questions in particle physics, from the nature of dark matter to the origin of neutrino masses, from the dominance of matter over anti-matter in the universe to the absence of strong CP violation and the large hierarchy between the electroweak and the Planck scale.

The workshop will focus on the current status of the data and their theoretical interpretation. An important goal of the workshop is to create a community roadmap for future experimental and theoretical work that will not only determine the Danilov amplitudes but also extract from them a deeper understanding of the interplay of the strong and weak interactions at low energies, thus providing a perspective on new experimental directions as well.

The workshop addressed questions related to hadronization and its multiple manifestations in high-energy scattering processes. Hadronization is intrinsically connected to fundamental properties of QCD, such as confinement and the dynamical breaking of the chiral symmetry. Moreover, it plays an important role in the context of hadron and nuclear structure studies. In particular, a detailed understanding of hadronization is vital for the optimal preparation of the next generation of experiments, such as the Electron-Ion Collider.

In recent years, jet physics in HIC has become an active field of study largely driven by the unprecedented experimental capabilities of the RHIC and LHC accelerator and detectors. In this context, jet substructure has emerged as a promising multi-dimensional tool to explore QCD dynamics and has already proved to be very useful in the context of heavy ion collisions.

Tensor network methods are rapidly developing and evolving in many areas of quantum physics. They offer new ways of computing the properties of strongly interacting quantum matter. They provide new perspectives on theories with sign problems and/or significant entanglement. Tensor network ideas are also closely related to emerging efforts to design algorithms suitable for current and future quantum computing hardware or quantum simulation experiments. This program will bring together experts from a range of scientific fields with a common interest in these new methods.

A sound theoretical description of nuclear forces is pivotal for understanding many important physical observables over a wide range of energy scales and densities, from few-body physics to nuclear-structure observables to astrophysical phenomena. A systematic and precise theory for nuclear Hamiltonians is crucial to providing accurate predictions for these systems with controlled theoretical uncertainties, and to enable meaningful comparisons of theoretical calculations with experimental data and astrophysical observations.

This program aims to bring together the accumulated knowledge of condensed matter physics, particle physics and nuclear physics to facilitate a re-examination of the QCD phase diagram using tools that go beyond the Landau paradigm, and explore further connections between nuclear matter, lattice gauge simulations, and topological Dirac and Weyl semimetals. The program will also highlight new inter-connected developments in condensed matter and QFT, including fractons and their field theory descriptions, higher form symmetries, and symmetry protected topological (SPT) phases involving onsite and spatial symmetries.
