Conference program

The conference program will consist of invited talks (35 min + 10 min for discussion) and contributed presentations (15 min + 5 min for discussion) as well as of the permanent poster display.

At the last day of the conference the panel discussion with the working title: Heavy ion physics - decline and revival is planned. The panel discussion is open to everybody and short presentations, covering both general issues and specific problems, are welcome for discussion. If you already plan to raise an issue, an earlier indication of the subject via e-mail will be very helpful to orchestrate the event.

Poster display

Poster boards will be available during the whole period of the conference. The size of a poster should not exceed 80 x 120 cm.

Conference Proceedings

Transcripts of all oral presentations and posters will be published in the Acta Physica Polonica B after passing a usual refereeing procedure. Contributions are limited to 15 pages in case of invited talks and to 8 pages in case of contributed talks and the poster presentations. Two copies of the paper should be submitted by the 30 of June 1998. To speed up the publication authors are kindly requested to provide, if possible, a diskette with the LaTex version of the paper. Manuscripts should be printed single sided, double spaced on A4-format paper. Abstracts should not exceed 250 words and can not be divided into paragraphs. Figures should not exceed A4 size and, in the electronic version, should be PostScript compatible. The standard LateX "article" style may be used, possibly with extensions provided by the Acta Physica Polonica style. Detailed instructions can be found in "A Guide to the Authors" of Acta Physica Polonica and a template paper is also available.

Social events

Tuesday, 30 June evening: welcome reception at HIL
Thursday, 2 July: dinner at restaurant "Wilanów" close to the Wilanów Palace of King Sobieski
Friday, 3 July: Opera by W.A. Mozart " Idomeneo, re di Creta".
Sunday, 5 July: excursion
It will be either a bus trip to Zelazowa Wola (Chopin's birthplace) with the piano concert or a guided tour of the Warsaw Old Town. The excursion(s) will be organised depending on the number of people interested. Therefore we would appreciate an earlier e-mail information in case you may be interested.

How to reach HIL?

We enclose the map which should help you to find your way.

If you arrive by air you can:

If you arrive by train to Warszawa Centralna you can:

As everywhere in the world you have to watch out for pickpockets if you take a public bus or tram.

When arriving by car:

We hope that the enclosed map can help you to find your way but please don't hesitate to contact us for more details.


Usually June and July are nice and warm in Poland, (about 25*C) but you have to be prepared for extremes, cold (13-15*C) with rain and hot (30-35*C).
