Abstract: 

Recently there have been numerous exciting developments in both theory and experiment
of the nucleon spin structure at large distance. New data from the “Spin Program” at
Jefferson Lab are expected soon. New experiments on spin polarizabilities at large distance
are planned or being performed at HI.S, JLab and MAMI. These developments are
complemented by significant theoretical advances. Meanwhile, three atomic experiments
aimed at measuring the ground-state hyperfine splitting in muonic hydrogen are being
prepared at PSI (Switzerland), RAL (UK) and RIKEN (Japan). These experiments should
improve the extraction of the Zemach radius by several orders of magnitude. However, the
success of these experiments strongly depends on a precision evaluation of the proton
structure effects. The purpose of this workshop is to bring together the nuclear and atomic
physics communities responsible for these recent developments, review them, and provide
directions and goals for the near-future progress.
