FAIRNESS 2014 - 22-27 September 2014


3rd International Workshop for young scientists with research interests focused on physics at FAIR

Dear Colleagues,

it is our great pleasure to announce the third FAIR NExt Generation ScientistS workshop, which will be held 22-27 of September 2014 at the Lloyd's Baia Hotel in Vietri sul Mare (Italy).

The workshop is designed to bring together excellent international young scientists with research interests focused on physics at FAIR. The topics of the workshop cover a wide range of aspects in both theoretical developments and current experimental status, concentrated around the four scientific pillars of FAIR.

We will have exciting and interdisciplinary discussions along these key topics:

  • Physics of hot and dense nuclear matter, QCD phase transitions and critical  point
  • Nuclear structure, astrophysics and reactions
  • Hadron Spectroscopy, Hadrons in matter and Hypernuclei
  • Special  emphasis  is  put  on  the  experiments  CBM,  HADES,  PANDA, NuSTAR, as well as NICA and the RHIC beam energy scan
  • New developments in atomic and plasma physics

The format of the meeting comprises of morning and afternoon sessions. The morning sessions will consist of one overview talk (35+10) and short presentations (25+5), the afternoon session will consist of short presentations only (25+5). Each session is enriched by active discussion sessions dedicated to the topics presented by the speakers. Informal interactive discussions will be carried out throughout the afternoon break, and after dinner.

Proceedings, that summarize the talks and discussion sessions with a special emphasis on interdisciplinary aspects between the different areas of research at FAIR, will be published after the workshop.
