RHIC Physics in the Context of the Standard Model:
A Workshop and Symposium
Motivation & Plans
Since its inception in 1997, the RIKEN BNL Research Center (RBRC) has graduated several dozen RBRC Fellows and Research Associates, many of who are now in permanent positions at institutions around the world. On the theory side, their research covers wide aspects of the standard model, including particle astrophysics, equilibrium and non-equilibrium properties of gauge theories at finite temperature and density, perturbative QCD, spin physics, effective field theories, lattice QCD and heavy ion physics. On the experimental side, RBRC graduates and current Fellows play leading roles in the RHIC spin and heavy ion experiments.
A workshop involving RBRC alumni and additional distinguished experts in their areas of expertise provides an excellent occasion to convey the progress and challenges in their respective research fields. It will also provide the RBRC alumni an opportunity to exchange ideas with each other and with colleagues at BNL. Further, a workshop at this juncture would enable alumni to renew their ties to RBRC as well as showcase the impact that RBRC has had over the past decade in the wider physics community.
