NA61/SHINE Analysis/Software/Calibration Meeting, 22-25 luty 2017, IFJ PAN Kraków

The NA61/SHINE meeting will be devoted to physics data analysis, software development and calibration of the international NA61/SHINE experiment at the CERN SPS accelerator. The experiment is looking for evidence of a crititical point of strongly interacting matter, characterizing the transition between classical matter and the extreme deconfined state known as the quark-gluon plasma. IFJ PAN joined the experiment in June 2016. A new research team composed mainly of young physicists has been created for this purpose. The research program proposed by IFJ PAN constituted an integral part o the new NA61/SHINE proposal of studies of lead-lead collisions, already partially approved by the CERN SPC Committee.

About 40 physicists from 5 countries (Poland, Germany, Hungary, Russia, USA) will participate.

The Open Session of the meeting will take place on Thursday, 23rd February 2017 in the main IFJ PAN Aula.

Plan of the Open Session:

  • 11:00-12:00 IFJ PAN seminar, Prof. Marek Gaździcki (Johann-Wolfgang-Goethe University, Frankfurt),
  • 12:00-12:30 Stopped Nucleons in Configuration Space, Prof. Andrzej Białas (UJ Kraków),
  • 12:30-13:00 Multi-particle Rapidity Correlations from Fireball Longitudinal Density Fluctuations – dr Adam Bzdak (AGH Kraków),
  • 14:30-15:00 Forward-backward Correlations and Multiplicity Fluctuations in ALICE – dr Iwona Sputowska (IFJ PAN Kraków),
  • 15:00-15:30 Machine Learning: Case of Higgs CP Measurement, Prof. Zbigniew Wąs (IFJ PAN Kraków).

We are looking forward to meet you at the Open Session!
