The 16th Zimányi Winter School on Heavy Ion Physics is held at the Wigner Research Center for Physics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, and partly at the Eötvös University, during December 5 - 9, 2016.

The School aims to summarize the developments of 2016 in high energy heavy ion physics, with particular attention to the new data emerging from the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) and the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), as well as J-PARC. We will discuss results from other high energy nuclear and particle physics facilities of the world, most importantly lower energy colliders, exploring the nuclear phase diagram (with special attention to FAIR and NICA). Another important point of the School is to discuss important new results in hydrodynamics, flow and femtoscopy. One of the main aims of the School is to encourage interaction between the theoretical and experimental community. The School is organized such that students are particularly encouraged to participate (their fee is also waived). See more details on the web page of the school: http://zimanyischool.kfki.hu/16

Housing: We recommend staying in Hotel Mercure Buda, as there is a bus from there to Wigner. We also managed to get a group price of 17,900 HUF for single rooms and 20,400 HUF for double rooms, including breakfast. If you would like to use this opportunity, please fill out the Hotel's form ([pdf], [docx]) and return it to Hotel Mercure Buda to the email address h1688-sb3@accor.com. For students it may be suitable to stay at the Csilleberc Youth Hostel, a few hundred meters from the Wigner Institute (the homepage is in Hungarian, but prices are shown on this page, location and contacts under Kapcsolat). It is also possible to stay in Ibis Budapest City Hotel, they offers a reasonable price in the range of 40-50 EUR. Please notify us during registration if you would like to use any of the above opportunities.
