Event description: 

The study of anisotropic flow provides strong constrains to the evolution of the medium produced in heavy ion collisions and its event-by-event fluctuations. This observable has long been related to collective behavior in the formed medium. Recent results show that such observables are also present in smaller systems. Is the underlying mechanism similar? Have we found quark-gluon-plasma droplets?
RHIC has had a broad program to study the physics of small systems by systematically varying the collision energy and ion configuration for a better understanding of the underlying physics. In this talk I present a summary of those results.
