The IS2017 is the 4th international conference in the series devoted to studies of the initial stages in high-energy nuclear and hadronic collisions.

New experimental results from the LHC and RHIC as well as recently developed theoretical tools indicate that collective-dynamics phenomena, commonly attributed to the formation of a quark-gluon plasma, take place in such processes. Explanation of the origin of collective behavior is a fascinating problem studied at the moment by many excellent groups worldwide. A crucial point in this respect is our progress in understanding of the initial state of strongly interacting matter formed in the collisions.

The meeting will be focused on the discussion of the present experimental and theoretical knowledge of the partonic structure of protons and nuclei; the corresponding conditions at the initial stages of the collisions, including the role and nature of fluctuations and correlations; the subsequent hydrodynamical evolution; the determination of viscosity and other transport coefficients of strongly interacting matter; and the emergence of collective behavior in small systems.
