Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) organizes Meeting of the working group on theory of hadronic matter under extreme conditions, Dubna, October 31-November 3, 2016

The nature of theoretical investigations in the field of relativistic heavy ion physics has a multidisciplinary and multilevel character as it requires resolution of a number of fundamental problems - as well as phenomenological studies directly connected with experiments and it has to be based on a coherent implementation of a wide range of methods of quantum chromodynamics, relativistic nuclear physics, kinetic theory, hydrodynamics and critical phenomena in finite short lived statistical systems.

Scientific program will include the following main topics and related methods:

– Confinement & chiral symmetry breaking in QCD

– Hadronic matter at nonzero temperature and baryon density

– QCD phase diagram

– Hydrodynamical and kinetic approach to QGP

– Approach to equilibrium

– Critical phenomena in finite statistical systems

– Strong electromagnetic fields in relativistic heavy ion collisions

– Lattice QCD

– Functional continuum methods

– Models of confinement and hadronization in QCD

Recently, the Agreement between the Government of the Russian Federation and the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research on the establishment and operation of the Complex of Superconducting Rings for Heavy Ion Colliding Beams NICA has been signed which creates favourable conditions for a further realization of the project NICA. In particular, this sets up an auspicious environment for enhancement of theoretical activities at JINR related to relativistic heavy ion physics.
