We will hold the 2nd International Workshop on Forward Physics and Forward Calorimeter Upgrade in ALICE, from March 13 - 15, 2023, at University of Tsukuba, Japan. The following topics will be covered at this workshop. 

  • Forward physics at high energy in pp, p-A, AA, e-p, e-A collisions
  • Initial condition of high energy heavy ion collisions at LHC and RHIC
  • Thermalization mechanism, strong fields
  • Small-x physics, gluon PDF, saturation and Color Glass Condensate (CGC)
  • Forward detector upgrade using Si-W calorimeter and hadron calorimeter at LHC, related detector technologies and upgrade project in other fields


This workshop will be held in-person, but some sessions will be also held in a hybrid mode. The tentative strucure of the workshop is as follows.


[ Day-1 (Mar. 13)] Forward physics and strong fields
[ Day-2 (Mar. 14)] FoCal detector and electronics
[ Day-3 (Mar. 15)] Future projects, Medical applications
