NICA accelerator complex project at JINR
The physics program and the present status of the NICA project, which is under construction now at JINR (Dubna), are presented. The main goal of the project is to study hot and dense baryonic matter in heavy-ion collisions in the energy range up to 11 AGeV. The plan of the accelerator part development includes upgrade of the existing superconducting (SC) synchrotron Nuclotron and construction of the new injector complex, SC booster and SC collider with two interaction points (IPs). The physics program will be performed with the fixed target experiment Baryonic Matter at Nuclotron, the Multi-Purpose Detector at the first IP of the NICA Collider and the Spin Physics Detector at the second IP.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
