Surfing in Costa da Caparica


This edition is the eight in a series of workshops that had been previously organised in Poland, Slovakia, France , Portugal and Bosnia and Herzegovina. In the year 2016 the workshop goes to  the beautifull Costa da Caparica, near Lisbon, Portugal.

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 allowed for longer discussions and for inspiring open-air activities.



The meeting will take place at Costa de Caparica, just 15km far from Lisbon downtown and reachable by the public transport. Costa da Caparica is a small laydback coastal town, home to many fishermen and surfers. It faces the Atlantic Ocean, just south of the Tejo Estuary and North of natural parks including the Arrábida Natural Park.
