A Symposium on Jet and Electromagnetic Tomography of Dense Matter will be held in McGill University just before the start of the Hard Probes 2015 Conference. The symposium will review the accomplishments of the JET Collaboration at the end of the five funding period, assess the progress made so far, and outline future challenges for the field.

A Closer Look at the Perfect Fluid

posted Oct 6, 2014, 10:57 AM by Xin-Nian Wang   [ updated Dec 22, 2016, 10:50 AM ]

By combining data from two high-energy accelerators, nuclear scientists have refined the measurement of a remarkable property of exotic matter known as quark-gluon plasma. The findings reveal new aspects of the ultra-hot, “perfect fluid” that give clues to the state of the young universe just microseconds after the big bang. - See more here:

Workshop on NLO energy loss

posted Feb 6, 2014, 3:02 PM by Xin-Nian Wang

A small workshop on NLO parton energy loss will be held by the JET Collaboration at LBNL during March 3-14, 2014. This is an informal workshop intended to have in depth discussion about progress and near term challenges about calculation of parton energy loss at the next-to-leading order in pQCD. The workshop is organized by Xin-Nian Wang and Bowen Xiao. For details and slides go to: NLO2014

JET collaboration meeting on NLO & MC

A 1 and 1/2 day JET collaboration meeting will be held on August 22-23, 2013 at Wayne State University. The goal of the meeting is to assess the progress made in NLO calculations of Energy-Loss and in Monte-Carlo simulations of jet shower modification in a dense medium. The meeting will include several talks from both JET and not JET members.  

2nd Workshop on Jet Modification in the RHIC and LHC era

posted Jul 28, 2013, 7:52 PM by Abhijit Majumder   [ updated Jul 28, 2013, 7:58 PM ]

The 2nd Workshop on Jet Modification in the RHIC and LHC Era  will be held on the campus of Wayne State University in Detroit Michigan, organized jointly with the JET Collaboration. The meeting will be for 2 and a half days starting on Tuesday the 20th of August and ending after lunch on Thursday the 22nd.

The goal of this 2 and 1/2 day meeting is to review the most important new experimental measurements and theoretical breakthroughs in the field of jet modification that have occurred in the past year and to throughly explore the limits of perturbative QCD based approaches to the description of hard processes in heavy-ion collisions.

The program, which can be found at:, includes a series of long, open format talks with lots of time for discussion.
All talks will be held in room 1117 of Science Hall at the intersection of Cass and Warren on the campus of Wayne State University.
