2012 RHIC & AGS Annual Users' Meeting


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 US."
  • 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 Organization (NUFO).
  • 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.
