International EMMI workshop on critical fluctuations near the QCD phase boundary in relativistic nuclear collisions

9-409 (Central China Normal University)

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. 

Organizers: Xiaofeng Luo (CCNU), Heng-Tong Ding (CCNU), Anar Rustamov (ANAS/GSI)  and Nu Xu (CCNU/LBNL)

This workshop is sponsored by the Institute of Particle Physics of Central China Normal University www.ccnu.edu.cn and the ExtreMe Matter Institute, Germanywww.gsi.de/emmi
