Dear Colleague,

We would like to announce the BUDAPEST'2002 Workshop on 'Quark and Hadron Dynamics in Relativistic Heavy Ion Collisions', to be held in Budapest, March 3-7, 2002. The Workshop will be located at Hotel Sunlight (41 Eötvös Str, Budapest, 1121), at the top of the Széchenyi Hill, with a scenic view towards the city of Budapest, 20 minutes bus-trip from downtown.

This Workshop is organized with the aim to bring together specialists in the field of parton physics, hadronization in heavy-ion collisions and dynamics of hadronic matter. The Workshop offers a possibility for theoretical physicists to display their results and to discuss them in detail. We intend to invite a few experimentalists as well, to show and summarize the most interesting recent results in heavy ion collisions at different energies. We plan to schedule several (6-7) topical sessions consisting of about 4-5 lectures lasting 30 minutes leaving ample time for discussions. Attendance will be by invitation only and limited to 35 participants actively working in the fields listed below:

- The first 1 fm/c at RHIC energy (low-x, saturation, QCD, pQCD)
- Thermalization and chemical evolution in partonic systems
- Testing hot dense colored matter in experiments
- Hadronization of parton gas and quark matter
- Reconstruction of the hadronic final state at RHIC
- Phase transitions of nuclear matter
- Hadron properties in dense partonic and hadronic matter

We expect participants to arrive on March 2 (Saturday). The Workshop will begin on March 3 (Sunday) and will adjourn on March 7 (Thursday) in the late afternoon.

The basic participation fee is estimated to 200 EUR, including all meals from March 3 morning until March 8 morning, banquet and Proceedings. At the Hotel Sunlight the participants will receive a special rate of 180 EUR/6 nights in a single room or 130 EUR/6 nights/person with double occupancy. Correspondence should be sent by e-mail to the address: BP2002@SUNSERV.KFKI.HU Detailed information about the Budapest'2002 Workshop (locations, participants, program) can be found at http://bp2002.kfki.hu/ .

Looking forward to a stimulating and fruitful meeting,
