We would like to invite you to participate in this year's Zimányi School Winter Workshop that aims to summarize the developments of 2020 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 slightly overlapping and not fully exclusive 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 and quarkonia (experiment+theory)
- Intermediate energies (FAIR, J-PARC, nuclear physics)
- Jets and high pT probes (experiment+theory)
- Magnetic field in heavy ion collisions (experiment+theory)
- Photons and dileptons (experiment+theory)
- QCD at non-zero temperature and density
- Search for the QCD critical point (experiment+theory)
- 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 school [pdf], and put next 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 Wednesday 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 heavy ion physics results in contributed talks. We also invite excellent researchers from other fields to present their results to encourage discussions and interactions between different but related communities. 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, or in case of students, a short recommendation from your supervisor.
Students (BSc, MSc, PhD included) are particularly encouraged to attend the school (and they may apply for a waiver of the registration fee, based on a recommendation from the supervisor).
Participation fee: TBA
Conference dinner will be held most probably on Tuesday. More details to follow soon.
Registration is requested by filling in the registration form on this webpage.
Housing: We recommend staying in Mercure & Ibis Budapest Castle Hill, as there is a bus from there to Wigner. The price is around 70 EUR for a single room. More details to follow soon. Participants may of course 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)
