International Workshop on Early Physics with Heavy-Ion Collisions at the LHC
The workshop brought together experimentalists and theorists to discuss the results of the first measurements with heavy-ion collisions provided by the LHC at the end of 2010. Results from ALICE, ATLAS and CMS were presented, as well as contributions from experiments at RHIC. The discussion was focused on the comparison with results from proton-proton collisions and heavy-ion data at lower energies, as well as with model predictions to discriminate between competing scenarios of particle production in ultra-relativistic nucleus-nucleus collisions. The main aim of the workshop was to refine the perspectives and guide the future studies on the physics with the heavy-ion collisions which will be provided by the LHC in the coming years.
