Using the extraordinary versatility of RHIC in selecting different colliding
species, the PHENIX experiment has collected data in p+Al, p+Au, d+Au, and $^{3}$He$+$Au at 200 GeV center-of-mass energy and conducted a comprehensive set of anisotropic flow measurements. These geometry-controlled experiments provide a unique testing ground for theoretical models that produce azimuthal particle correlations based on initial and/or final state effects.

New results that will be presented at this conference include a complete set of
triangular anisotropies of inclusive charged particles and final results on
identified pion, kaon and proton $v_2(p_T)$. The $v_3$ measurements are particularly sensitive to the initial-state fluctuations and the duration of the hot matter stage; the mass-ordered splitting in $v_2(p_T)$ provides information about the role of early-stage collective flow and late-stage hadronic rescattering. Detailed model comparisons with all observables will be discussed.
