Particle Physics Seminar

Date: Wednesday 17th November 2004

Title: Conference Report: Strangeness in Quark Matter (SQM) 2004

Speaker: Dr Orlando Villalobos-Baillie (Birmingham)


The Strangeness in Quark Matter Conference recently held in Cape Town allowed many new results on measurements of strangeness and heavy flavour in heavy ion physics, together with their interpretation, to be presented. In this talk the main topics presented at the conference are reviewed, the emerging picture of the dynamics of ultrarelativistic heavy ion collisions discussed, and future prospects for these studies described.

This Particle Physics Seminar will take place in Seminar Room 2 (room 106), Physics West, at 1315. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be served at 1300.
