Quark Matter 2023 is the XXXth International Conference on Ultra-relativistic Nucleus-Nucleus Collisions, which will be held in Houston, Texas, USA. This conference brings together theoretical and experimental physicists from around the world to discuss new developments in high-energy heavy-ion physics. The focus of the discussions is on the fundamental understanding of strongly-interacting matter at extreme conditions, as formed in ultra-relativistic nucleus-nucleus collisions, as well as on emergent QCD phenomena in high-multiplicity proton-proton and proton-nucleus collisions.

The scientific program will cover the following topics:

  • Light and strange flavor physics
  • Heavy flavor physics
  • Electromagnetic Probes
  • Chirality
  • Jets
  • Initial state of particle collisions
  • Small systems
  • Collective Dynamics
  • QCD at finite density and temperature
  • Critical point searches
  • New theoretical developments
  • Nuclear astrophysics
  • Physics of the Future Electron Ion Collider and the RHIC Spin program
  • Physics of ultra-peripheral collisions
  • Future facilities/detectors
