The 6th Asian Triangle Heavy-Ion Conference
This meeting continues the tradition of bringing the Asian heavy-ion physics community together to discuss new developments in the field. Physicists from CIJK (China, India, Japan and Korea) are critical partners in the international group of physicists working to understand hot and dense QCD. This meeting provides a platform for discussions and reviews of these studies, and provides a place for young as well as experienced researchers from these countries to meet each other.
The 6th ATHIC brings this meeting to New Delhi, India. Previous meetings in this series were held in Osaka Japan (2014), Busan Korea (2012), Wuhan China (2010), Tsukuba Japan (2008), and Seoul Korea (2006).
Focus areas for this meeting will be
- Initial state and thermalization
- Transport and hydrodynamics
- Freeze out and the final state
- The phase diagram of QCD
