The International Conference HARD PROBES 2018 will be held at Aix-Les-Bains (Savoie, France) from October 1st to 5th 2018. This is the 9th of the Hard-Probes conference series initiated in Ericeira (2004), followed by Asilomar (2006), Santiago de Compostela (2008), Eilat (2010), Cagliari (2012), Cape Town (2013), Montréal (2015) and Wuhan (2016).

Student day will be held at CERN (Geneva, Switzerland) on 30th September 2018.

The conference is focused on experimental and theoretical developments on perturbative probes of hot and dense QCD matter as studied in high-energy nucleus-nucleus, proton-nucleus and proton-proton collisions, including: (i) nuclear Parton Distribution Functions and early-time dynamics, (ii) jets and high-pT hadrons, (iii) heavy quarks (charm, bottom, top), and quarkonia, (iv) high-pT photons and electroweak bosons, and (v) future experimental and new theoretical developments in associated topics.
