Describing heavy-ion collisions as hydrodynamical explosions of liquid of quarks and
gluons has been a tremendous phenomenological success.
A major uncertainty in such modeling arises from what happens during the first 1fm/c of the evolution
during which the system is far from local thermal equilibrium.
I will describe how the postcollision debris start behaving hydrodynamically, and how the
phenomenological modeling of the prehydrodynamical evolution can be improved.
