The project NICA (Nuclotron-based Ion Collider fAcility) is aimed to study hot and baryon rich QCD matter in heavy ion collisions in the energy range up to √s_NN = 11 GeV. The heavy ion program includes the study of collective phenomena, dilepton, hyperon and hypernuclei production under extreme conditions of highest baryonic density. This program will be performed at the Nuclotron accelerator extracted beams with the BM@N (Baryonic Matter at Nuclotron) set-up and with the MPD (MultiPurpose Detector) at the NICA collider with the average luminosity of L = 1⋅10^27 cm−2⋅s−1 (for gold-gold collisions at √s_NN exceeding 9 GeV).
