Joint CATHIE/TECHQM Workshop

Registration is now closed...

Motivation & Plans

The CATHIE and TECHQM collaborations will hold a joint workshop at Brookhaven National Laboratory on December 14-18, 2009. The workshop will include plenary and parallel sessions, as well as unscheduled discussion time. The workshop will have three areas of focus:

  1.  Assessment of the theoretical status of
    1. viscous hydrodynamics,
    2. gluon saturation and initial conditions for transport models of heavy ion collisions,
    3. long range rapidity correlations,
    4. local P and CP violation,
    5. thermal photons and dileptons, and
    6. heavy flavor hadrons as probes of the QGP;
  2. Formation of a new, broad-based Physics Working Group of experimentalists and theorists, aimed at quantitative comparison of calculations based on viscous hydrodynamics with measurements of global observables in relativistic heavy ion collisions;
  3. Detailed discussion of partonic energy loss theory and data, including analysis and write-up of the "QCD Brick Problem" and discussion of next steps to quantify the transport parameters governing energy loss.

Special Events

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.
