The on-line seminar series on “RHIC Beam Energy Scan: Theory and Experiment” will be held online weekly using ZOOM. It aims to present and discuss recent developments and future directions on both theoretical and experimental sides, related to heavy-ion collisions at RHIC Beam Energy Scan energies. The focuses of this workshop are flow and hydrodynamics, critical and noncritical fluctuations, complemented by overviews and updates on related topics such as chirality, vorticity, future experimental facilities, etc.

The second series of the online seminar is scheduled on every Tuesday and the first talk will start on January 12, 2021. Considering that our participants and speakers come from all parts of the world, we have selected the following time slot for the seminar:  6:00am (San Fransisco), 9:00am (New York), 3:00pm (Frankfurt), 6:30pm(New Delhi), 9:00pm (Beijing), 10:00pm (Tokyo) Each talk will be one hour long, with a limited number of questions allowed during the talk, followed by an additional 30 minutes for discussion.
