Motivations & Plans

This is the 5th workshop in a series that started 2004 with a workshop at the ECT* in Trento. Subsequent meetings were held at the University of Bergen in 2005, at the Galileo Galilei Institute in Florence in 2006 and the GSI/Darmstadt in 2007.

The purpose of the workshop series is to discuss theoretical and experimental progress in studies of the QCD phase diagram and properties of strongly interacting matter at high temperature and density. Particular emphasis is put on the physics at non-zero baryon number density that shall be probed in future low energy experiments at BNL, CERN, GSI and JINR.


There will be a welcome reception on Monday, June 8, 2009 and an optional banquet dinner on Thursday, June 11, 2009. Please note, you must register for the banquet dinner no later than May 28, 2009. The optional banquet dinner will cost $40 and will be held at:

Visit our Anniversary Website One of ten national laboratories overseen and primarily funded by the Office of Science of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Brookhaven National Laboratory conducts research in the physical, biomedical, and environmental sciences, as well as in energy technologies and national security. Brookhaven Lab also builds and operates major scientific facilities available to university, industry and government researchers. Brookhaven is operated and managed for DOE's Office of Science by Brookhaven Science Associates, a limited-liability company founded by the Research Foundation for the State University of New York on behalf of Stony Brook University, the largest academic user of Laboratory facilities, and Battelle, a nonprofit, applied science and technology organization.
