We would like to invite you to participate in this year's Zimányi School Winter Workshop that aims to summarize the developments of 2021 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)
Note that this year's school/workshop will be held in a hybrid format, with both local and remote participation possible.
We are looking forward to the continuation of this series and hope to welcome our colleagues and friends in Hungary.
Flyer: 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 COVID situation does not allow us to use the facilities of the Wigner Research Center. This means that the entire workshop will be held at the Eötvös University. The school/workshop is usually held at the Wigner Research Center for Physics (a Hungarian Academy of Sciences Excellence Research Center). The Wigner RCP is located on the "KFKI campus", in building no. 3. (see a map of the campus here, more details here). Under normal circumstances,on Thursday the school is supposed to be held at the Lágymányos Campus of the Eötvös University, in the "Northern Building" (see a map of the campus here, more details here). Again, due to COVID limitations, this year all the sessions will be held at the Eötvös University. Location is Room 7.18-22 (7th floor), see this map.
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 and you are not a regular presenter at the Zimányi Schools, please email us a brief abstract, or in case of students, a short recommendation from your supervisor. Please note that our event is a school for students of high energy heavy ion physics, a workshop for researchers (working in high energy heavy ion physics) and a symposium for experts of related fields.
Posters: We may organize a dedicated poster session. Students are encouraged to submit poster presentations to this; they can note this by writing "(poster)" after the end of their suggested talk title.
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).
The registration fee is 150 EUR, to cover basic organization costs, the coffee breaks and contributes to the remaining expenses of the school (one participation fee also covers the participation
of one student). This fee can be waived for remote participants, although they are encouraged to pay the fee to support the free participation of students. Participants are kindly asked to transfer the participation fee to the following account

Lunches and dinners are not covered by the registration fee. Participants are suggested to use the Wigner Institute cafeteria (building 23 and 11 on this map) or the cafeterias near the Eötvös University (see this map).
Housing: We recommend staying in Mercure & Ibis Budapest Castle Hill, as there is a bus from there to Wigner, and the Eötvös University is also reachable comfortably by public transport. The price should be around 70 EUR for a single room. Alternatively, Ibis Styles Budapest City Hotel could be recommended, which is close to the Eötvös University, but also right at the final stop of bus 212 which goes up to Normafa, near the Wigner campus. 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)
