Description
The goal of the workshop is to introduce the fast-evolving sPHENIX simulation environment, as well as providing a platform for collaborators to work on the following topics:
· Jet performance with updated detector design
· Jet background subtraction, fake rejection and reaction plane detection
· Heavy flavor jet/meson study in Geant4
· Exploring hadron physics topics in sPHENIX and in EIC
· Software platform construction
The first day or two of the workfest will focus on introducing the sPHENIX simulation framework and providing hands-on tutorials. Continuing ahead from the tutorial we held in May, we will further introduce tracking and jet evaluations, as well as new software tools. For the later days of the week, we will break into a few topical groups to work on more specific simulations. Plenary sessions for topical summaries are planned at the beginning of each work day.
We encourage groups that are interested in developing the sPHENIX simulation and physics program to participate in person. To help us to organize the workfest, we invite participants to register from the menus on the left.
