Workshop on QCD at high density
The meeting is motivated by the confluence of several exciting issues. The foremost among these is the coming Beam Energy Scan II at the RHIC in Brookhaven. This narrows the scan to a region where there were earlier indications of a possible critical point of QCD. The second development is the study of light hyper-nuclei: their properties are of interest not only in nuclear physics, but also to heavy-ion physics, where the production of these hyper-nuclei are very important probes of the late stage dynamics of the cooling fireball, and neutron stars, where transport properties in the proto-neutron star and the structure of neutron stars could be acted by these components. The third development is the study of transport properties in strongly interacting matter, which has begun to tie together vastly different kinds of physics. Other experiments which will address similar issues are the CBM experiment in FAIR and the NICA in JINR.
Local hospitality will be provided to about 25 students and post-docs. Email to the conference address a copy of your journey tickets as soon as you can, in order to ensure your room booking.
Some financial support will be available for travel within India for students and post-docs. If you would like to apply for support, then please check the "I require travel support" field while registering. Also ask your guide or post-doc mentor to send an email to the conference address to support your case. Requests will be considered only if both of these conditions are satisfied.
