2012 RHIC & AGS Annual Users' Meeting
UEC Elections are now closed.
The annual RHIC & AGS Users' Meeting will be held on June 12- 15, 2012 at
Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL). The theme of this year’s meeting is "The
Frontiers of RHIC Physics," a topic of great importance to the RHIC community.
The meeting will be focused on latest results from a variety of running
conditions that we have been exploring, in recent years, as well as the
possibility of extending RHIC physics to uncharted territories. All are
encouraged to attend the workshops on Tuesday and Wednesday to learn and share
your point of view of the future of RHIC.
- Day One -
The first day will be devoted to a set of physics
workshops on heavy ion and spin physics. These two workshops
will run in parallel.
- Day Two -
The second day is dedicated to a workshop on both
machine and detector upgrades and a workshop on eRHIC. Topics
will include overviews of current machine and detector plans,
discussion of the long-term future of heavy ion physics at RHIC,
the decadal plans of the existing experiments, and discussions
of machine and detector options for eRHIC. This day will be
closed with a one hour distinguished lecture from Department of
Energy’s Dr. Timothy Hallman, Associate Director of Science for
Nuclear Physics on "The Future of Nuclear Physics in the
- Day Three -
The plenary meeting will consist of presentations from
all RHIC experiments, BNL management and our funding agencies.
It will also include talks on machine operations, thesis awards,
and the accomplishments of the National User Facility
- Day Four -
The last day of the plenary session will focus on the
outlook of RHIC Physics and machine upgrade plans towards the
future physics at RHIC and eRHIC. This session will also include
updates from the Users’ Executive Committee (UEC) and Association
of Students and Postdocs, UEC election results, and poster awards.
