Initial Conditions in
Heavy-Ion Collisions

QCD at high parton densities


The program will be built around specialists in residence. There will be some talks but the emphasis will be on discussion. There will be a one week advanced school targeted at students and post-doctoral fellows during this program.

Places are limited. Please apply by writing in to the conference e-mail address.

Partial travel support will be available to a limited number of applicants. In your mail mention whether you would like to be considered for support.
