The annual RHIC & AGS Users' Meeting will be held on June 9-12, 2015, at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL). The theme of this year’s meeting is "The Perfect Liquid at RHIC: 10 Years of Discovery". This year is the 10th Anniversary of the BNL press release announcing the discovery white papers by the RHIC experiments of the Perfect-Liquid Quark-Gluon Plasma. The meeting will cover all aspects of the RHIC and eRHIC physics program. Workshops will be held on June 11 and June 12 where p,d,He3 and A + A collision data, Bulk-properties, new Beam Energy Scan data, Quarkonium, Heavy-Flavor and Jet Energy-Loss Physics, Quantitative Modeling, EIC and Nucleon Structure will be discussed.

The plenary sessions on June 11 and 12 will include talks on RHIC Run 15, the latest physics results from STAR and PHENIX, upgrade plans, reports from representatives from the funding agencies, and Thesis Award presentations. During the week, we will also hold one or more special events to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Perfect Liquid.
