"Quark Matter highlights"
We will show and discuss selected highlights from the
new experimental results presented at the XXVIIth International
conference on Ultrarelativistic Heavy Ion interaction (QM2018)
conference that ended last week. The new results were shown in the
measurement of particle correlations, hard probes, small systems and new
facilities. Some findings make us reassess already known facts from the
new point of view.

probes in heavy ion interactions with ATLAS"
Electroweak probes in heavy ion interactions with ATLAS Electroweak
bosons produced in collisions of heavy ions provide an excellent tool to
measure the initial stage of the heavy ion interaction. By measuring
yields and distributions of the massive electroweak (EW) bosons via
their leptonic decays and isolated prompt photons, we can assess the
parton distribution functions and test their modifications in the
nuclear environment compared to the ones of the free nucleon. Production
rates of EW bosons is an opportunity to test our understanding of the
collision geometry. EW probes serve as a standard candle for the
calibrated measure of the jet energy loss in the strongly coupled
quark-gluon plasma created in collisions of heavy ions. The ATLAS
experiment at the LHC collected a high-statistics data sample in
proton-proton, proton-nucleus and nucleus-nucleus collisions at the
center-of-mass energies of 5.02 and 8.16 TeV. This talk will cover the
most recent results and future perspectives for measuring the
above-mentioned signatures and comparisons of results with various
next Nuclear Physics Joint Seminar for this year will be held
on Monday, May 28th, at the Weizmann Institute of Science, Weissman
Building (Physics) in the Drori Seminar room.
