"On the path to extracting precision cross sections from Hall C commissioning experiment E12-10-002"

E12-10-002 ran in Hall C in Spring of 2018 for about 3 weeks with the goal of extracting cross sections for H(e,e') and D(e,e') reactions in the deep inelastic and resonance region regimes. Our data cover a broad range in Bjorken x and we reached Q^2 values as high as 14 GeV^2. E12-10-002 will have an impact on a wide range of physics topics like Parton Distribution Functions extractions, Quark-Hadron Duality studies, F2_neutron/F2_proton at large x, modeling of H(e,e') and D(e,e') processes and moments of the F2 structure function.

In this talk I will summarize the physics motivation for running the experiment and I will also highlight the sinuous path to getting precision cross sections from measurements done with a brand new spectrometer (Super High Momentum Spectrometer) and a new data acquisition system.
