    It was really a great day allowing to go through all the history of heavy ion physics with a look also to the future. Thanks to all the organizers who made this event possible. Greetings to all the participants and specially to all my old date friends which whom I was pioneering this new branch of high energy physics at CERN.

    <p>In fact hadron nucleus collision have quite a long history at CERN but this has started with relatively low energy beams in a fixed target configuration. Mainly&nbsp;nuclear enhancement under the name of a Cronin effect was studied modelling it&nbsp;successfuly with a Glauber type calculations. Now the scope of physics investigations is much larger but these first steps played a non negligible role in a present fast progress of this branch of high energy nuclear physics</p>

    <p>I would mantion here also some unexpected similarities between heavy ions collisions and high multiplicityproton-proton collisions with proton-lead collisions bridging the two..&nbsp;</p>
