View Proceedings


The "CPOD2017: Critical Point and Onset of Deconfinement" Conference will take place, August 7-11, 2017, at The Wang Center, Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, NY. Brookhaven National Laboratory, Stony Brook University and Beam Energy Scan Theory (BEST) Collaboration will co-host this international event. The purpose of the CPOD conference series is to discuss theoretical and experimental progress in studies of the QCD phase diagram and the properties of strongly interacting matter, particularly focusing on the physics at large baryon densities.

The main topics to be discussed at the conference will include:

  • The QCD Critical Point
  • Phase transitions in hot and dense matter
  • Deconfinement and chiral symmetry restoration
  • Hadronization and chemical freeze-out
  • Compact Stars
  • Future facilities, detectors and methods
