Light up 2018 workshop

4/3-006 - TH Conference Room (CERN)

4/3-006 - TH Conference Room


Show room on map

The aim of the workshop is to bring together experimentalists from ALICE and the theory community, to discuss the latest results in the light-flavor sector and the open issues. The goal of the meeting is to establish the 10 most important open problems of light-flavor physics towards the LHC Run 3 and 4.
   Discussion will cover the following topics:
   1) Freeze-out(s) and hadronic phase 
   2) Recombination of strangeness and charm 
   3) Origin and understanding of strangeness enhancement
   4) Nuclei production and survival, hyper-triton puzzle
