General Information

XI Collaboration Meeting of  the MPD Experiment at the NICA Facility is organized in Dubna, Russia at the V.I.Veksler and A.M.Baldin LABORATORY OF HIGH ENERGY PHYSICS of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research on April 18-20, 2023 either in person or remotely.

  Current status and progress in the construction of the MPD detector will be presented. Situation with preparation of the superconducting magnet for cooling and magnetic field measurements, production of the Phase-I detector subsystems including electronics and cooling systems will be discussed. Most recent schedule of the NICA accelerator complex, construction and commissioning of the MPD detector as well as plans for first beams will be provided. New developments in computing and software infrastructure for operation, calibration and alignment of the detector subsystems as well as for physical analyses with the first collected data sets will be reviewed. New developments in the physics feasibility studies and analysis techniques will be summarized in the PWG reports accompanied with a number of dedicated reports with highlights from other heavy-ion experiments and more detailed discussion of observables of interest.
