The Heavy Ion Collisions in the LHC Era international conference will be held in Quy Nhon, central Vietnam, from 15-20 July this year. The event, which will focus on the proton-nucleus and nucleus-nucleus collisions at LHC and RHIC energies, will include an optional half-day excursion and the possibility for a post-conference tour in northern Vietnam.
Topics being covered at the conference include: collective dynamics; jet quenching; heavy flavour and quarkonia production; electroweak probes; QCD at high temperature and density & phase diagram; and pre-equilibrium and initial state physics.
Special emphasis is being placed on encouraging active participation from younger researchers and postdocs. In addition, limited accommodation funding is available for young scientists from developing and eastern European countries. Interested parties should download the application form and send it – with a short resume and a letter of recommendation – to the conference organizers heavyions2012 [at] lapp [dot] in2p3 [dot] fr?cc=jtrantv [at] gmail [dot] com,hady [dot] schenten [at] orange [dot] fr.
