A STAR-iTPC upgrade workshop will be held at Shandong University, Jinan, during December 3-4, 2016. The purpose of the workshop includes review of iTPC-MWPC preparation in China, and discussion of Beam Energy Scan II physics at RHIC. It will be a two-day workshop.
The inner sector upgrade of STAR TPC (iTPC) will increase the segmentation on the inner padplane and renew the inner sector wire chambers, which will extend the TPC acceptance to |eta|<1.5 from |eta|<1, and provide better resolution in both momentum and energy loss dEdx, with better particle identification and lower minimum transverse momentum cut. The iTPC upgrade is one of the key detector upgrades for RHIC Beam Energy Scan II during 2019-2020. The main physics program with BES-II is to study the QCD phase transition, in particular the search of possible critical point in the phase diagram of nuclear matter.
