News, 10 April 2018

On 11 – 13 April 2018, the first Collaboration meeting of the MPD and BM@N experiments at the NICA facility will be held in JINR. This 3-day meeting in the Veksler and Baldin Laboratory of High Energy Physics JINR is held to officially launch the MPD and BM@N Collaborations.

The discussions and presentations at the meeting will center around three main topics:

  • current status and plans of the MPD and BM@N experiments, including all subsystems, simulations, expected performance of the detectors and preparedness for data analysis.
  • current status and schedule of the NICA facility including the expected machine parameters.
  • procedures to establish and adopt the by-laws of the Collaborations, including the formation of the governing bodies of the Collaborations.

All groups already involved, as well as groups potentially interested, in one or the two experiments, are invited to participate in the meeting to formally join the MPD and/or BM@N Collaborations.
