Proceedings of the 1993 Summer Institute on Particle Physics:Spin Structure in High Energy Processes (SSI93)
Burke, D.
The XXI SLAC Summer Institute on Particle Physics was held from July 26 to August 6, 1993. It gathered 210 physicists from 11 countries to study Spin Structure in High Energy Processes. As in past years, the school portion of the Institute lasted seven days and consisted of pedagogical lectures in the morning, followed by afternoon discussion sessions.

The XXI SLAC Summer Institute on Particle Physics was held from July 26 to August 6, 1993. It gathered 210 physicists from 11 countries to study Spin Structure in High Energy Processes. As in past years, the school portion of the Institute lasted seven days and consisted of pedagogical lectures in the morning, followed by afternoon discussion sessions. Recent experimental and theoretical developments were then presented at the three-day topical conference, addressing recent experimental and theoretical results on a variety of topics.

The Summer School lectures showed that polarization, or spin, is a powerful tool for exploring fundamental physics, whether one is probing the spin structure of the nucleon, making precision electroweak measurements at the Z^0 resonance, or establishing the nature of particles yet to be discovered at future colliders. Little of this physics would be possible without technical advances in the production and preservation of polarization in accelerators and targets. Highlights of the topical conference included: new measurements of the spin structure functions of the neutron and proton, the opening of a new kinematical regime for e-p collisions at HERA, and a wealth of b physics results from a number of different accelerators.
