Hot Quarks 2016 Workshop - HQ 2016
**** Reminder: Pre-Registration/Abstract Submission Closes on June 3 ****
As we have announced previously the 7th workshop in the Hot Quarks
series will be held September 12-17, 2016, on South Padre Island,
The aim of this workshop is to enhance the direct exchange of
scientific information among the younger members of the Relativistic
Heavy Ion community, both from experiment and theory. Therefore
we especially want to encourage postdoctoral fellows, advanced
graduate students, and junior faculty and research staff to apply.
Topics that will be addressed include:
- QCD at high temperature/density and lattice QCD
- Initial state effects and Color Glass Condensate
- Relativistic hydrodynamic and collective phenomena
- Correlations and fluctuations
- Jets in the vacuum and in the medium
- Baryons and strangeness
- Heavy flavor, dileptons and photons
- Applications of String Theory and AdS/CFT
- Experimental techniques and future programs
The workshop program is divided into morning and afternoon/evening
sessions each consisting of short (~20 min) presentations and typically
one longer overview talk. Each session is followed by a relatively long
(~1hr) Question&Answer session. Active participation is encouraged in the
Q&A sessions. Ample free time between lunch and the afternoon session and
after dinner is planned in order to enhance informal interactions. The
number of participants will be restricted to <80. Every participant will
give an oral presentation. All participants are expected to be present on
the workshop premises throughout the duration of the conference.
The KKG Award is awarded for the best presentation at the conference. The
prize is dedicated to the memory of Klaus Kinder Geiger, who perished on
Swiss Air flight 111 from New York to Geneva in 1998.
The conference fee will be $500. This fee covers basic accommodation in the
conference hotel (2 participants per room), all coffee breaks, breakfasts,
lunches and dinners during the conference, as well as proceedings in Journal
of Physics G Conference Series.
If you are interested in attending HQ2016 please pre-register and
submit an abstract through our workshop website at http://hq2016.bnl.gov.
Pre-registration and abstract submission will close on June 3. Due
to the limited number of participants, and the high interest in attending
this workshop, speakers will be selected from the list of submissions after
registration closes on June 3, and notified via email.
If your contribution is accepted and you need to obtain a visa to enter the
U.S. we will issue a formal invitation letter upon request.
Further details about the program and the workshop venue, including travel
information, are posted on the website http://hq2016.bnl.gov
