2. Monday, November 17 at the Weizmann Institute

A one-day informal satellite meeting on "Hot and Dense Matter: the next few years", is planned at the Weizmann Institute, on Monday, November 17.  With the start of the LHC program behind the corner and the strong ongoing RHIC program, the very near future looks exciting for the study of hot and dense matter. The meeting will focus mainly on open and controversial questions where progress is likely to be made in the next years.


We plan to have four topical sections with 1h 30min per topic including ample time for discussions:

09:00 - 10:30 Open and hidden Charmonia

Dmitri Kharzeev (20’)
Ramona Vogt (20’)
Open discussion (50’)

10:30 - 10:50 Coffee Break
10:50 - 12:20 Jets and high pT phenomena

David d’Enterria (30’)
Peter Jacobs (30’)
Open discussion (30’)

12:20 - 13:10 Lunch on the lawn
13:10 - 14:40 Global Observables and critical point

Peter Steinberg (30’)
Roy Lacey (30’)
Open discussion (30’)

14:40 - 15:00 Coffee Break
15:00 - 16:30 Few open issues in HI interactions

Stan Brodsky (20’)
Axel Drees (20’)
Krzysztof Redlich (20’)
Burkhard Kaempfer (10')
Open discussion (20’)




Participants are welcome to prepare a short, (3 slides/5 min) presentation for any topic of their interest and show it during the discussion time.

The meeting will be held at the Drory Auditorium of the Physics building (Weissmann building) of the Weizmann Institute. Please consult the campus map.

Registration and Accommodation
There is no registration fee. Lunch and coffee will be provided. A few rooms and apartments on campus or at the nearby Faculty of Agriculture have been reserved and they will be available from November 14 to 18 at a cost of about 150NIS per night per person. If you wish to reserve one of these please send a request to Sasha Milov stating your arrival and departure time and number of accompanying persons.

There are several means to get from Eilat to Rehovot after PANIC. Please consult the PANIC08 travel page. If you choose to fly from Eilat we recommend booking the flight as early as possible. Land transportation can be arranged during the conference at Eilat.
For all options you can consult these resources:
Flights:  Israir, Arkia
Buses:   Egged, Dan
Trains:   Rakevet Israel
Cars:     Hertz, Avis, Budget, Sixt, Eldan
Hotels:  Israel hotel association
Tours:   M.o.T., Bein Harim, Egged

If you need to go to Ben Gurion Airport after the Satellite meeting a cab takes less than 30min w/o traffic and costs ~120NIS. Ask one of the secretaries  (Ana, Reut) to make a reservation for you.
