On 5-12.7. 2017 the European Physical Society Conference on High Energy Physics, which is one of the major international conferences for HEP, was this year held in Venice, Italy. At this conference, two of our students (Ing. Miroslav Šimko and Bc. Oliver Matonoha) presented their up to date research progress and one student (Ing. Lukáš Kramárik) presented his poster.
Ing. Lukáš Kramárik (FNSPE CTU in Prague) is presenting his poster on Measurements of charm meson production in p+p and Au+Au collisions by the STAR experiment.
On 12-16.6.2017 a XII Workshop on Particle Correlations and Femtoscopy was held in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Our student, Ing. Jindřich Lidrych (FNSPE CTU in Prague), had his presentation on Kaon femtoscopy in 200 GeV collisions at the STAR experiment. RNDr. Petr Chaloupka, Ph.D. (FNSPE CTU in Prague) and Bc. Lukáš Holub (FNSPE CTU in Prague) also attended this workshop.
Today, 15.6.2017, at the FNSPE CTU in Prague the meeting of SAB of infrastructure BNL-CZ was held. The recent activities and future plans of STAR, PHENIX, sPHENIX and phenomenology conducted at CTU in Prague, CU in Prague and NPI CAS were presented. The members of SAB are prof. Dr. Alberica Toia (IKF Goethe-Universität), prof. RNDr. Pavel Cejnar, DSc.(CU in Prague) and doc. Mgr. Alexander Kupčo, Ph.D.(Institute of Physics CAS). The physics program of the infrastructure and services provided to the users of BNL-CZ were recognized as very important and very satisfactory.
Winter School of Theoretical Physics in Karpacz is a long-standing tradition at the University of Wroclaw. This year was the main topic "Understanding the Origin of Matter from QCD" and took place in karpacz, Poland on 26.2 - 4.3. Several students from FNSPE participated in this school namely Ing. David Horák, Ing. Lukáš Kramárik, Bc. Jakub Kvapil, Bc. Jakub Cimerman, Bc. Peter Pribeli, Bc. Josef Uchytil, Bc. Zuzana Gajdošová and Bc. Radka Sochorová. David, Lukáš and Jakub presented their posters and Jakub won the "Best experimental poster" award.
