The 4th International Conference on Hard and Electromagnetic Probes of High Energy Nuclear Collisions (Hard Probes 2010) will be held from 10 to 15 of October, 2010 in Eilat, Israel.
Hard and electromagnetic probes play a key role in the study of the strongly interacting matter created in high energy heavy-ion collisions. Recent new measurements and theoretical developments have resulted in significant progress and incisive understanding of the properties of hot QCD matter. Hard probes will play a central role in upcoming RHIC runs as well as in the LHC heavy-ion program that is now getting under way.
The biannual "Hard Probes" series is among the leading conferences in the field of high-energy heavy-ion physics, providing a forum for in-depth discussion of hard and electromagnetic probes and related topics in a moderate-sized meeting.
Following the tradition of the previous Hard Probes Conferences, the scientific program will focus on the production of jets, high transverse momentum hadrons and correlations, heavy flavor hadrons and quarkonia, photons and dileptons, and on initial state phenomena. Hard Probes 2010 will consist of invited talks, contributed papers that will be presented in plenary and parallel sessions, and a poster session.
The Conference will be held in Eilat, a well known resort town located on the shores of the Gulf of Eilat which connects Israel to the Red Sea and further down to the Indian Ocean. It commands spectacular desert and mountain views, offering unique touristic attractions. In recent years Eilat has been the site of several large international conferences held in Israel.
Hard Probes 2010 is hosted by the Weizmann Institute of Science.
