The goal of this workshop is to focus on the search for critical phenomena via fluctuations of conserved quantities in relativistic heavy-ion collisions. In this workshop we want to get together principal actors from the US, Europe and Asia to make progress towards a quantitative understanding of such fluctuation measurements with the aim to isolate possible critical behavior. Novel theoretical developments will be discussed and confronted with recent data from the RHIC and LHC heavy-ion measurements. In order to develop further analysis of such fluctuations into a useful tool for the study of the QCD phase diagram, it is crucial to advance our knowledge of the properties of fluctuations through theoretical studies of QCD matter in equilibrium in the thermodynamic limit and improve the experimental methods for detecting and analyzing fluctuations. In addition to world-wide leading scientists, a number of young participants working in this field will be invited and asked to present their work.

1. Experimental measurements with conserved charge fluctuations and their       interpretations.
2. QCD Phase diagram
3. Lattice QCD
4. Effective models

No registration fee.

Wuhan, the capital of Hubei province, lies at the confluence of the Yangzi and Han Rivers, roughly midway between Beijing and Guangzhou. With a 3,500-year-long history, Wuhan is one of the most ancient and civilized metropolitan cities in China. Hubei is the birthplace of the brilliant ancient Chu Culture in China and has the reputation of junction of transportation artery to nine provinces and the land of thousand lakes.
