Abstract: 

The goal of the Workshop is to first review the status of our current understanding of the flavor structure of the sea-quark contents in the nucleons, and then to address various outstanding unresolved theoretical issues in this subject, followed by discussions of key experiments at various existing and future facilities. The Workshop will cover both the spin-averaged and the spin-dependent sea quark contents in the nucleons. The success and open issues of various theoretical approaches, including lattice QCD, light-cone formulation, intrinsic sea, meson cloud, perturbative QCD, chiral quark, soliton, etc., will be discussed at this Workshop. This Workshop will also identify new experiments which could effectively test these theories at existing or future facilities.
