The Second Conference on Heavy Ion Collisions in the LHC era and beyond, taking place in Quy Nhon on 26-31 July 2015, will focus on the physics of proton-nucleus and nucleus-nucleus collisions at RHIC and LHC, and will explore future capabilities. Results accumulated by the RHIC/LHC experiments and recent theoretical developments will be presented on the following topics:
- A: Global and Collective Dynamics
- B: Jet quenching
- C: Heavy Flavor and Quarkonia Production
- D: Electroweak Probes
- E: QCD at High Temperature and Density & Phase Diagram
- F: Pre-equilibrium and Initial State Physics
We will aim to achieve a balance between review talks given by recognised specialists, and shorter contributions, special emphasis being placed on active participation by younger researchers and post-docs. Parallel sessions are foreseen, and are being organised as the need arises. The inaugural opening talk will be given by Prof. Jerome I. Friedman, Nobel Prize of Physics in 1990.
This conference is part of a series of international meetings held regularly in Vietnam, created by Jean Tran Thân Van in 1993. Their purpose is to stimulate the development of advanced research in Vietnam and more generally in South East Asia, and to establish collaborative research networks with Western scientific communities.
The conference will take place in Quy Nhon,Vietnam, from Sunday, July 26th to Friday, July 31st, 2015 in the new International Center of Interdisciplinary Science Education ICISE (see leaflet and video). The Center has been inaugurated on August 12, 2013 during the Inaugural Conference Windows on the Universe. The center is located in an exceptional location near the sea, close to a small town situated on the east coast of Vietnam, one hour north by air from Ho-Chi-Minh City (Saigon).
