International Workshop on "Flow, Jet Quenching and Strong Coupling Physics"
Date: December 17-19, 2016 (Sat.-Mon.)
Anisotropic flow and jet quenching are two signature phenomena in relativistic heavy ion collisions, leading to the discovery of the strongly interacting quark-gluon plasma. Anisotropic flow is often attributed to hydrodynamic collective expansion of the quark-gluon plasma, but the observations of large anisotropic flow parameters in small collision systems have casted doubt on the complete hydrodynamic explanation of the phenomenon. Jet quenching is caused by energy loss of high transverse momentum particles traversing and interacting with the heavy ion collision medium. However, the precise energy loss mechanisms are far from clear. The furthering in the understanding of the anisotropic flow and jet quenching mechanisms is anticipated to bring about new insights to high density quantum chromodynamics.
