A new state of matter "Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP)" at extreme conditions; high temperature and high density is experimentally studied at Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) and Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at European Organization for Nuclear Study (CERN). Utilizing the unique particle identification and triggering capabilities of PHENIX and STAR experiment at BNL-RHIC and ALICE experiment at CERN-LHC, various collective properties of QGP as well as partonic interactions inside QGP and their interplay are investigated.

1st CiRfSE workshop 2015/Mar/12-13(Thu-Fri), Univ. of Tsukuba

Recent results on QGP researches at high-temperature and high-density from RHIC and LHC experiments are reported especially about collective phenomena of QGP as well as partonic energy loss inside QGP with hard probes such as jets and photons. Future experimental plans at LHC and RHIC, the beam energy scan program at RHIC and lower energy nuclear collisions at J-parc and Fair are discussed in order to investigate towards the both directions in the quark-hadron QCD-phase diagram, one at higher-temperature QGP state and another at higher-density QGP state and to search for the critical point. Experimental collaboration efforts and issues among universities and institutions are also discussed.
