Invitation to the Zimányi 2007 Winter School on Heavy Ion Physics:

- as of November 27, 2007 -

Dear Colleague,

We would like to invite you to participate in this School that aims to summarize the developments in 2007 in high energy heavy ion physics, with particular attention to the new data emerging from the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) accelerator. As usual, we plan to discuss in detail recent results and advances on correlations and fluctuations in high energy particle and heavy ion physics. This year the focus of the School will be the discussion of (super)fluidity, the fluid nature of Quark Gluon Plasma found at RHIC. Special talks from outside heavy ion physics are invited to help to deepen our understanding of the low levels of kinematic viscosities as measured in these reactions. Furthermore, we will discuss the preparation of the (Hungarian) heavy ion community at the LHC accelerator and its experiments. Hungarian teams are preparing for participation in the ALICE, CMS and TOTEM experiments at LHC.

Contributed talks: Participants are encouraged to present their recent results in brief contributed talks. Please e-mail us your name, institute, the title and a brief abstract of your contribution, if any.

Participation fee of 10000 HUF (about 40 EUR) is forseen to be charged to the participants, to covers the basic organization costs, the coffee breaks and contributes to the other expenses of the school. Housing: As a default, participants are expected to solve their housing in Budapest, and to cover their lunch expenses at the KFKI Cafeterias. Links to Budapest hotels are provided here.

Students are particularly encouraged to attend the school (and their fee will be waved).

Registration is requested by sending an e-mail to the organizer.

Looking forward to a stimulating and fruitful meeting,

T. Csörgö
