Since the discovery of strangeness almost five decades ago, interest in this degree of freedom has grown up and now its investigation spans the scales from quarks to nuclei. Measurements with identified strange hadrons can provide important information on several hot topics in hadronic physics: the strange distribution and fragmentation functions, the nucleon tomography and quark orbital momentum, accessible through the study of the Generalized Parton Distribution (GPDs) and the Transverse Momentum dependent parton Distribution functions (TMDs), the quark hadronization in the nuclear medium, the hadron spectroscopy and the search for exotic mesons.
The aim of the workshop is to offer the state of the art on the strangeness physics in hard processes and its experimental issues.
The CLAS12 large acceptance detector in Hall B at Jefferson Lab upgraded with a RICH detector together with the 12 GeV CEBAF high intensity, high polarized electron beam can open new possibilities to study strangeness in hard processes allowing breakthroughs in all those areas. The workshop has been organized to support this project and discuss the future role this facility can play in addressing open questions in the strangeness physics field. In addition, the program will also offer a more general overview on measurements with identified strange hadrons for existing and future facilities.
