Winter School

Dec. 5 - 7, 2001
Budapest, Hungary
Barabás, M.: "The Eruption of Vesuv" (1835)

Dear Colleague,

We would like to invite you to participate in this school that aims to summarize recent developments in high energy heavy ion physics, with particular attention to the new data emerging from the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) accelerator. The RHIC accelerator has been dedicated to collide intersecting beams of heavy ions in the search for a new state of matter called quark gluon plasma. The focus of the school is on collaboration between experimental and theoretical physicists who are interested in finding QGP and perhaps other new states of hot and dense hadronic matter. We would also like to prepare for an increased Hungarian participation in the PHENIX experiment of the RHIC accelerator at the Brookhaven National Laboratory, Long Island, USA.
Location of the school will be the Auditorium of the Research Institute for Particle and Nuclear Physics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (MTA KFKI RMKI), Building III, 2nd floor,Konkoly-Thege M. u. 29-33, Budapest XII, Hungary.
Expenses of the School will be covered by support of OTKA, NWO and NSF grants. Although there will be no participation fees, the participants are expected to solve their own housing in Budapest as well as to cover their meals at the KFKI cafeteria.
Students are particularly encouraged to attend the school.
Registration is requested by sending an e-mail to the organizers. Participants are encouraged to summarize their recent results in brief contributed talks (10 minutes, 5 transparencies). Please e-mail us your name and institute, (and the title of your contribution, if any).

Please have a look at the final programme, and the final list of participants.
The final list of lecturers can be found here.

The School is dedicated to Professor Jozsó Zimányi's 70-th birthday.
Looking forward to a stimulating and fruitful meeting,

T. Csörgö and P. Lévai,
the RHIC'01 Organizing Committee
