2013 RHIC & AGS Annual Users' Meeting

Motivation

The annual RHIC & AGS Users' Meeting will be held on June 25-28, 2013 at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL). The theme of this year’s meeting is "Accelerating Discovery: A Collider for Hot Science”. The meeting will touch on topics that highlight RHICs unique capabilities to discover the novel properties of hot and cold QCD matter. Workshops will be held on June 25 and June 26 where new results from d+Au, U+U, and Cu+Au runs, highlighting the flexibility of RHIC, will be discussed. Workshops will also be held on the spin of the proton, hard probes in heavy ions, non-equilibrium effects at RHIC and the LHC and forward upgrades to STAR and PHENIX.

The plenary sessions; will include a special half-day plenary session on the afternoon of June 26 on “nuclear physics at a glance” with speakers invited from each of the major nuclear physics sub-fields. The plenary sessions on June 27 and 28 will include talks on RHIC Run 13, the latest physics results from STAR and PHENIX, upgrade plans, reports from representatives from the funding agencies, and Theses Award presentations.
