General Lab Information

Due to the ongoing effects of COVID-19, the Annual RHIC & AGS Users' Meeting will be held virtually.


The Annual RHIC & AGS Users' Meeting will be held on June 7–10, 2022. The meeting will highlight the latest physics results from the STAR and PHENIX experiments and provide an outlook with the future programs at RHIC and the EIC.

Workshops that will be held virtually on Tuesday and Wednesday June 7th and 8th will enable more in-depth discussions of the beam energy scan, studies of small systems, machine learning, cold QCD and spin, measurements of hard probes in heavy ion collisions, diversity, physics opportunities and detector developments at the EIC. There will be an online poster session on Thursday, June 9th. 

Plenary sessions will be held virtually on Thursday, June 9th and Friday, June 10th. Reports on operation status, highlights from STAR and PHENIX experiments, an in-depth look at the upcoming sPHENIX experiment and EIC detectors, reports from representatives from the funding agencies, and award ceremonies will be held during the plenary sessions.
