chaired by Ingo Deppner (Universität Heidelberg), Norbert Herrmann (Universität Heidelberg)
Saturday, September 29, 2018 from to (Europe/Berlin)
at Heidelberg, Physikalisches Institut ( Golden Box )
Physikalisches Institut, Im Neuenheimer Feld 226, D-69120 Heidelberg

This workshop will focuse on the eTOF upgrade project at STAR and the related physics. It aims at bringing together scientists interested in the BES II and CBM physics.

Workshop fee is  30 Euro / participant. The Workshop Fee can be payed in cash at the workshop desk.


We kindly ask all participants of the meeting to make their own hotel reservation directly with the hotel of their choice.
