The Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) organizes "The II International Workshop on Theory of Hadronic Matter Under Extreme Conditions" in Dubna, September 16 - 19, 2019.

In its nature, theoretical investigations in the field of relativistic heavy-ion collisions have a multidisciplinary character involving physics at various energy scales. They ask not only for a resolution of the number of fundamental problems but also phenomenological studies directly connected with experiments. The progress in this field relies on a coherent implementation of a wide range of methods of quantum chromodynamics, relativistic nuclear physics, kinetic theory, hydrodynamics and physics of critical phenomena in finite shortly-lived systems. Construction of the Complex of Superconducting Rings for Heavy Ion Colliding Beams NICA sets up an auspicious environment for enhancement of theoretical physics activities at JINR related to relativistic heavy ion physics.

Participants are invited to submit their contributions to the Special Issue of Open Access Journal Particles "Selected Papers from “Theory of Hadronic Matter under Extreme Conditions”":
Particles is a peer-reviewed journal, more details about the conditions for the preparation of manuscripts are on the indicated website. The general article production charge (APC) is not applied to the Special Issue, submissions are free of charge. The page count of contributions is not limited. The deadline is shifted to December 15.

The 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
  •  Hydrodynamic and kinetic approaches to dense matter
  •  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
