We would like to invite you to participate in this School that aims to summarize the developments of 2017 in high energy heavy ion physics, with particular attention to the new data emerging from the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) and the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), SPS and J-PARC. We will discuss results from other high energy nuclear and particle physics facilities of the world, most importantly lower energy colliders, exploring the nuclear phase diagram (with special attention to FAIR and NICA). Another important point of the School is to discuss important new results in hydrodynamics, flow and femtoscopy. One of the main aims of the School is to encourage interaction between the theoretical and experimental community. A list of topics of the School includes (in alphabetical order):
- Effective QCD theory/model approaches
- Elastic scattering and diffraction (experiment+theory)
- Femtoscopy (experiment+theory)
- Flow and hydrodynamics (experiment+theory)
- Gluon saturation and electron-ion collider (experiment+theory)
- Heavy flavor probes (experiment+theory)
- Intermediate energies (FAIR, J-PARC, nuclear physics)
- Jets and high pT probes (experiment+theory)
- Photons and dileptons (experiment+theory)
- QCD at non-zero temperature and density
- Strongly coupled gauge theories (beyond SM, AdS/CFT)
- Vorticity and polarization in heavy ion physics (experiment+theory)
We are looking forward to the continuation of this series and hope to welcome our colleagues and friends in Hungary.
Poster: if possible, please be so kind and print the poster of the 2017 school [pdf], and put to your door or to the notice-board of your department.
Location: The school will be held at the Wigner Research Center for Physics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. It is located on the "KFKI campus", in building no. 3. (see a map of the campus here, more details here). As currently planned, on Thursday the school is held at the Lágymányos Campus of the Eötvös University, in the "Northern Building" (see a map of the campus here, more details here).
Talks: Participants are encouraged to present their recent results in contributed talks. Please register on our website, giving us your name, institute and the talk title, and other logistical details. If your contribution was not discussed with us before, please email us a brief abstract.
Students (BSc, MSc, PhD included) are particularly encouraged to attend the school (and their fee will be waived). Students from COST countries may apply for a full scholarship, covering not just the registration fee, but also all costs (travel, housing, meals). Deadline for this is November 1, and decision will be made shortly after that. Students willing to apply shall note this on the registration form. A support letter (in simple email) from the supervisor is also expected, to the email address of the chair of the conference. Supported students have to be present throughout the whole school. Also note, that a "hands-on" session will be organized, most probably on Wednesday.
Participation fee: 100 EUR or 30000 HUF (including tax), it covers the basic organization costs, the coffee
breaks and contributes to the remaining expenses of the school (one participation fee also covers the participation
of 1 or 2 students). Participants are kindly asked to transfer the participation fee to the following account
(noting their name(s) and mentioning "Zimányi School 2017" as a comment):

Lunches and dinners are not covered by this fee. Participants are suggested to use the Wigner Institute cafeteria (building 23 and 11 on this map). On Thursday, we will be at the Eötvös University. On this day, participants may have lunch in the restaurants or cafeterias around the campus. In particular, we suggest Science Building A.
Housing: We recommend staying in Hotel Mercure Buda, as there is a bus from there to Wigner. We also managed to get a group price of 17,900 HUF for single rooms and 20,400 HUF for double rooms, including breakfast. If you would like to use this opportunity, please fill out the Hotel's form ([pdf], [docx]) and return it to Hotel Mercure Buda to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org (Ms Bernadett Beke). For students it was previously suitable to stay at the Csilleberc Youth Hostel, but apparently they closed their operations in October 2017 unfortunately. It is also possible to stay in Ibis Budapest City Hotel, they offers a reasonable price in the range of 40-50 EUR. Please notify us during registration if you would like to use any of the above opportunities. Also note, that for the hotel reservation, we need your explicit reservation by mail at least 30 days before the conference. Participants may solve their housing in Budapest on their own, links to Budapest hotels are provided here.
Looking forward to a stimulating and fruitful meeting,
(for the Organizing Committee)
