    • 10:00 - 10:30 A statistical mechanical view on high energy physics 30'
      The use of the celebrated Boltzmann-­-Gibbs entropy and statistical mechanics is justified for ergodic-like systems. In contrast, complex systems typically require more powerful theories. We will provide a brief introduction to nonadditive entropies and associated nonextensive statistical mechanics, and then present some recent applications to systems such as high-­energy collisions, black holes and others. 
      Speaker: Constantino Tsallis
    • 10:30 - 11:00 The Tsallis Distribution at the LHC. 30'
      In this talk we  review applications of the  Tsallis distribution in high energy physics covering p-p, p-Pb and Pb-Pb collisons at ALICE, ATLAS and CMS.
      Results from STAR and PHENIX will also be reviewed.
      The energy dependence of the three parameters, volume, q and T will be discussed in great detail.
      Speaker: Jean Cleymans (University of Cape Town)
    • 11:00 - 11:30 Using Tsallis function in the Heavy Ion data 30'
