General Information

The Nuclotron-based Ion Collider fAcility (NICA) is the flagship project of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubna, Russia. The accelerator complex and the experimental setups are in advanced stages of realization, with first beams and data taking expected to take place in 2025.

The NICA days workshop is associated with the XII-th MPD Collaboration Meeting, a regular meeting of the MPD International Collaboration, which will be held at the same place on October 4-6. The NICA days workshop aims to briefly review the status of the NICA project and to discuss the physics mission and the programs of the NICA experimental setups (BM@N, MPD and SPD experiments) as well as the applied research planned at the facility. The NICA days workshop will serve to advertise the project with the goal to attract new collaborators from the scientific and engineering communities, young scientists and students in particular.  

A series of lectures will be given to review physics phenomena commonly studied in heavy-ion collisions and experimental techniques used to measure the signals of interest with emphasis on those relevant for the NICA project. The reports will be adapted to non-specialists and graduate students targeting scientists, engineers and students interested in heavy-ion physics and in the design and construction of equipment for the NICA experiments.
