Title: Quark Matter 2017: Young Scientist Support

Abstract

Quark Matter conference series are amongst the major scientific events for the Relativistic Heavy Ion community. With over 30 year long history, the meetings are held about every 1½ years to showcase the progress made in theoretical and experimental studies of nuclear matter under extreme conditions. The 26th International Conference on Ultra-relativistic Nucleus-Nucleus Collisions (Quark Matter 2017) was held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Chicago from Sunday, February 5th through Saturday, February 11th, 2017. The conference featured about 180 plenary and parallel presentations of the most significant recent results in the field, a poster session for additional presentations, and an evening public lecture. Following the tradition of previous Quark Matter meetings, the first day of the conference was dedicated entirely to a special program for young scientists (graduate students and postdoctoral researchers). This grant will provided financial support for 235 young physicists facilitating their attendance of the conference.

  • OAK B127 The proceedings published contains the papers presented at the ''8th International conference on X-Ray Lasers held in Aspen, Colorado, from May 26th to May 31, 2002, attended by participants from 15 countries. This meeting was part of a series that reviews the most recent advances in the development and application of X-Ray Lasers. The first meeting was held in Aussois in 1986 and was followed by conferences at York (1990), Schliersee (1992), Williamsburg (1994), Lund (1996), Kyoto (1998) and Saint Malo (2000). The published proceedings of these conferences provide the reader with a good overview of the significantmore » progress that the field of X-Ray Lasers has achieved over the years. This proceeding will give some further insight on many of the scientific and technical issues related to the development and application of these short wavelength coherent sources.This proceedings give an update view of the rapid progress in the development of X-Ray Lasers, and review several applications. A clear emphasis of the work summarized in these papers is the development of compact and practical X-Ray Lasers, driven by the success in pumping with table top short pulse optical lasers and with fast capillary discharges. This has produced table-top laser sources that have a peak spectral brightness several orders of magnitude larger than synchrotrons,that now allow the successful realization of unique table-top experiments such as the interferometry of very high density plasmas. The contents of these proceedings also show that the progress in source development is accompanied by the demonstration of new optics and x-ray instrumentation that are vital to realize the full potential of these new sources in novel scientific and technological applications.« less

  • Excerpts of essays by Walt W. Rostow, Henry C. Wallich, and Eugene B. Skolnikoff present a range of views on the extent to which politics is a barrier to world agreement on future economic growth. Rostow considers the desires of developing countries for food, energy, and raw materials to be the central problem in reaching a global environmental equilibrium based on cooperation. He advocates joint discussions where industrialized and developing countries can review together the facts and agree on a mutually satisfactory effort. Wallich views growth limits as unlikely and unworkable whatever their merits because predictions, historically imprecise, are generallymore » unheeded. He sees the proper action for economists as the development of adjustment mechanisms to allow appropriate market responses and to make whatever growth occurs safer. Skolnikoff views recent world political fragmentation as a threat to cooperation and recommends a controlled marketplace to counteract this trend by better serving immediate social goals. (DCK)« less
  • Abstract workflows are useful to bridge the gap between scientists and technologists towards using computer systems to carry out scientific processes. Provenance traces provide evidence required to validate results and support their reuse. Assuming both technologies are based on formal semantics, a knowledge-based system that consistently merges both technologies is useful for scientists that produce data to document their data collecting and transformation processes; it is also useful for scientists that reuse data to assess scientific processes and resulting datasets produced by others. While evaluation of each technology is necessary for a given application, this work discusses their combined evaluation.more » The claim is that both technologies should complement each other and align consistently to a scientist’s perspective in order to be effective for science. Evaluation criteria are proposed based on lessons learned and exemplified for discussion.« less
