The great originality of this workshop will therefore reside in its aim of gathering experts from the so-called “spin physics” and “heavy-ion” communities who are interested by novel quarkoniumrelated observables at colliders. We also wish to gather senior researchers who contributed to the early experimental and theoretical studies with younger colleagues – the list of expected participants already gathers a dozen postdocs or junior permanent researchers who are actively working on the subject. We expect this list to be completed by more PhD students and postdocs. As we briefly described above, excited quarkonium states show an unexpected behaviour in the nuclear matter whereas the understanding of their production in pp collisions requires more observables to constrain the theory. One class of new observables is that of associated-quarkonium production which can provide extremely important information on the gluon TMDs as well as on the physics underlying double-parton scatterings both in nucleon-nucleon and heavy-ion collisions. The workshop will therefore be a privileged moment for these experts from Europe, the US and Asia to gather, exchange their know-how and discuss the progress of their most recent works. To achieve this, we have thought about the tentative schedule detailed below as well as to the extensive key participants lists which encompass a number of experts in the domain.
