General Lab Information


Following the highly successful celebration of the 20th anniversary of the first collisions at RHIC earlier this year on June 12th, we are hosting an abbreviated, online-only Annual Users Meeting on October 22–23, 2020. The workshops will enable more in-depth discussions of the beam energy scan, measurements of hard probes in heavy ion collisions, studies of small systems, strong field effects, and cold QCD. The plenary session will include the latest physics results from STAR and PHENIX, reports about the current operational status, and updates from the proposed detector upgrades and future experiments. We will conclude the plenary session with award ceremonies.
