Description: An Informal Workshop on Intense Polarized Ion Sources was held on March 6, 1980, at the O'Hare Hilton Hotel, Chicago, Illinois. The purpose of the Workshop was to discuss problems in developing higher-intensity polarized proton sources, particularly the optically-pumped source recently proposed by L.W. Anderson of the University of Wisconsin. A summary of the discussions is reported. The main topic was the concept of utilizing an optically-pumped alkali vapor described by L. W. Anderson of the University of Wisconsin (Nucl. Instrum. Methods. v.167, pp. 369, 1979) and the questions he raised in that paper. The workshop started with a talk by Professor Anderson in which he further described the concepts of his paper and suggested some topics he felt needed further investigation. Later in the day, the discussion switched to other possible high-intensity polarized sources, in particular with the H/Cs charge exchange source similar to the system operating at the University of Wisconsin.
