eXtreme QCD (XQCD) is a series of international workshop-style conferences, held annually, which aims to cover recent advances in the theory and phenomenology of QCD under extreme conditions of temperature and/or baryon density, together with related topics. This year’s meeting is organised by the Centre for Mathematical Sciences (CMS) at Plymouth University. Copies of the talks and links to the videos for most of the talks can be found on the indico site.
The 15th International Conference on QCD in Extreme Conditions (XQCD 2017) will be held in Pisa
from Monday, 26 June to Wednesday, 28 June 2017.
A brief report on the conference was published in the CERN courier magazine (you need to scroll down on this page).
The list of topics is:
- QCD phase diagram
- Quantum Field Theories of dense, cold matter and the sign problem
- Properties of the quark-gluon plasma
- Heavy ion collision experiments
- Condensed matter systems
- Strongly interacting Dark Matter
- Mathematics of inverse problems
- Joaquin Drut (University of North Carolina)
- George Fleming (Yale)
- Anders Hansen (Cambridge)
- Uli Heinz (Ohio)
- Biagio Lucini (Swansea)
- Daniel Nogradi (Budapest)
- Claudia Ratti (Houston)
