A new large-area, lightweight tracker based on the GEM technology is under development for the upcoming experiments in Hall A at Jefferson Lab, where a longitudinally polarized electron beam of 11 GeV will be available in late 2013. This beam, combined with innovative polarized targets, will provide luminosity up to 1039/(sċcm2) opening exciting opportunities to investigate unexplored aspects of the inner structure of the nucleon and the dynamics of its constituents. The GEM tracker design is presented in this paper. © 2012 IOP Publishing Ltd and Sissa Medialab srl.
