The CATHIE and TECHQM collaborations will hold a joint workshop at
National Laboratory on December 14-18, 2009. The workshop will include
and parallel sessions, as well as unscheduled discussion time.
The workshop will have three areas of focus:
Assessment of the theoretical status of
gluon saturation and initial conditions for transport models of
heavy ion collisions,
long range rapidity correlations,
local P and CP violation,
thermal photons and dileptons, and
heavy flavor hadrons as probes of the QGP;
Formation of a new, broad-based Physics Working Group of
and theorists, aimed at quantitative comparison of calculations based on
viscous hydrodynamics with measurements of global observables in
heavy ion collisions;
Detailed discussion of partonic energy loss theory and data,
analysis and write-up of the "QCD Brick Problem" and discussion of next steps
quantify the transport parameters governing energy loss.
All registered attendees are invited to attend the optional PHENIX-STAR-CATHIE TECHQM Workshop cocktail party on Wednesday, December 16, 2009. Please
note, anyone who would like to participate must pay their own way.
