Meeting Location: Berkner Hall Auditorium, Bldg. 488 

Preliminary Agenda

Plenary Session V: Developing a RHIC Strategy to Present at Next Long Range Plan
08:45 Welcome Helen Caines
  Poster Award/UEC Election Results Helen Caines
  Possibilities for maintaining AA and pp capabilities in parallel with eRHIC  
Panel Moderator:  Steven Vigdor
  Panel and Community Discussion: Among the critical questions to be discussed:  
  1)  Since LHC HI results seem very similar to RHIC's are both facilities needed?  
  2)  Will 2 - 3 year cessation of RHIC operations be essential to fund eRHIC? If so, what is optimal timing?  
  3)  Is it crucial to maintain  AA & pp capability into eRHIC era? If so, can we reconfigure IR's annually, or do we separate HI from eA in different IR's?  
  4)  What eRHIC science is realizable within a realistic total project cost limit?  
  5)  How do STAR and PHENIX Collaborations evolve smoothly from RHIC to eRHIC?
