Description
This town meeting will commence immediately after the conclusion of the 2012 Quark Matter conference in Washington D.C. The meeting will provide a forum for our community to discuss our long range scientific plans and provide input on a shorter white paper being prepared at BNL as well as a broader white paper under preparation. These white papers will help inform the discussions of the NSAC subcommittee chaired by Bob Tribble and charged with establishing priorities within the 2007 LRP under much tighter budget guidance than expected at the time the LRP was developed. The white papers will build on recent discussions of future RHI goals at RHIC, LHC, NICA, and FAIR. This meeting will provide an opportunity to gather input from the entire international community. Community members are invited to offer comments and may submit a slide to prsorensen (at) bnl.gov if they would like to have a slide to show during their comments.
