The 2022 edition of Excited QCD will take place from Oct 24 to 28 2022 (i.e. arrival on Oct 23, presentations start on Monday morning and end on Friday), in Giardini Naxos, Sicily. It is about 50 km north of the Catania Airport, which is well connected to European cities. The Arathena Rocks Hotellocated directly by the sea, will host the meeting.

This edition is the twelfth  in a series of workshops that had been previously organised in Poland (2009), Slovakia (2010 and 2015), France (2011), Portugal (20122016 and 2017), Bosnia and Herzegovina (2013 and 2014), Serbia (2018), Austria (2019) and Poland (2020).

The workshop covers diverse aspects of QCD:

(i) QCD at low energies: excited hadrons, new resonances, glueballs, multiquarks.

(ii) QCD at high temperatures and large densities: heavy-ion collisions, jets, diffraction, hadronisation, quark-gluon plasma, holography, colour-glass condensate, compact stars, applications to astrophysics.

Emphasis is placed on new developments in theory as well as the current experimental status. Scientific atmosphere, various discussions about different topics in QCD, active participation of many young researchers and a nice environment have been the main characteristics of the previous editions and also represented the goals for the new edition. The talks are all plenary, 20' long separated by 10' for discussions and with a coffee break of 30' every three or four talks for more discussions. An extended lunch break allows for longer discussions and for inspiring open-air activities.
