General Info

The Helmholtz International Summer School "Matter under Extreme Conditions in Heavy-Ion Collisions and Astrophysics", organized by the Bogoliubov Laboratory of Theoretical Physics, JINR in the framework of the program DIAS-TH will be held in Dubna, Russia, from August 20 to 31, 2018.

The preliminary program of the school includes the following topics:

  • Equation of state and QCD phase transitions
  • Transport properties in dense QCD matter
  • Hadronization and freeze-out in heavy ion collisions (HIC)
  • Astrophysics of compact stars and their mergers (CS)
  • Simulations of dense QCD, HIC and CS
  • Dense matter in strong electromagnetic fields
  • Experiments and observational programs

The lectures will be supplemented by evening discussion sessions. Short reports of the students will be encouraged as well.

The total number of participants is expected to be about 50. PhD or master students and young postdocs are invited to apply for participation.
