POLDIS is a Monte Carlo program for polarized (semi-inclusive) deep inelastic scattering (DIS). Unpolarized DIS events are generated with the existing lepto-production event generators LEPTO for DIS and AROMA for Heavy Flavor production. The relevant spin asymmetries are computed at partonic level to first order in αs for each generated event, and are then convoluted with the corresponding ratio between the polarized and unpolarized parton distribution functions (i.e. parton polarization).
