Process dependence of the gluon Sivers function in inclusive $pp$ collisions: phenomenology

Within the so-called color gauge invariant generalized parton model, a TMD scheme including initial- (ISI) and final-state (FSI) interactions, we present a phenomenological analysis of available SSA data for pion and $D$-meson production in $pp$ collisions. This allows us, for the first time, to put a preliminary constraint on the two universal types of gluon Sivers function entering the model. Predictions for SSAs in $J/\psi$ and direct photon production, as well as a comparison with the simpler generalized parton model (without ISIs and FSIs), are also presented.
