Description
The goal of this workshop is to give opportunity for students and young researchers to give presentations and to write proceedings. A morning plenary session, followed 15+5 minute presentations, shall be the format across our three days. The topics to be covered will be high-energy theory and phenomenology (heavy ions, pp, ep, ee collisions), ATLAS physics and ALICE physics. Given the format, it is expected that all MSc and PhD students will have a chance to present to their peers and senior physicists. It is envisioned to provide Honors and undergraduate students with the opportunity to perform poster presentations.
