This workshop will bring together physicists working on the BESIII Experiment (at the Institute of High Energy Physics, Beijing, China) and the GlueX Experiment (at Jefferson National Laboratory in Newport News, Virginia) to discuss a variety of overlapping interests. While the BESIII experiment uses an electron-positron collider to study the behavior of quarks and gluons, the GlueX experiment uses a beam of photons incident on a nuclear target to study similar topics in hadron physics. Now is an opportune time to build connections between the two international experiments -- the GlueX Experiment has recently commenced its physics program, and the BESIII Experiment, which has been collecting data since 2009, has recently had a string of breakthroughs in hadronic physics. By bringing together a diverse group of both experimentalists and theorists, we will explore ways the two communities can learn from one another.
