YITP long-term workshop

New Frontiers in QCD 2018
- Confinement, Phase Transition, Hadrons, and Hadron Interactions -

May 28 - June 29, 2018
Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics, Kyoto University

On this long-term workshop

In 2007, Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics (YITP) started new project "Yukawa International Program of Quark-Hadron Sciences (YIPQS)" funded by Japan Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology. In this project we select research topics for each long-term workshop and invite leading experts to stimulate discussion and to foster collaborations among workshop participants.

This time, we hold "New Frontiers in QCD 2018 - Confinement, Phase Transition, Hadrons, and Hadron Interactions - ", as a successor of the four long-term workshops and the Yukawa international seminars held under the same title in the past (2006, 2008, 2010, and 2013,). The aim of the workshop is to have comprehensive but intensive discussion on the expanding frontiers of quantum chromodynamics and related topics.

During the workshop, participants stay at YITP with desks and other facilities. They can take ample time for discussions with other participants in a relaxed atmosphere of Kyoto.
