With the advent of heavy-ion collisions at LHC after the first successful 10 years of RHIC, high pT physics is becoming increasingly important for the study of the properties of dense matter under extreme conditions. The abundance of hard processes at such high energies will make the quantitative study of the dense matter possible. The purpose of this workshop is to offer an opportunity for scientists to have a close examination of the experimental results from the first heavy-ion program at LHC together, lessons learnt from RHIC and new advances in theoretical studies. Focus will also be given to high pt physics in pA collisions especially at the LHC energies. The workshop will only have plenary presentations and plenty time for discussions.
