The 18th International Conference on QCD in Extreme Conditions (XQCD 2020) will be organized by The Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim, Norway, from July 22 to July 24 2020. XQCD is a series of international workshop-style conferences, held annually, which aims at covering recent advances in the theory and phenomenology of QCD under extreme conditions of temperature and/or baryon density, together with related topics.

We will have 6 invited talks and approximately 30 contributed talks covering the topics

QCD at Finite Temperature and Density
Heavy Ion Collisions Phenomenology
Phase Diagram of Strongly Interacting Matter
Properties of the Quark-Gluon Plasma
Properties of Strongly Interacting Gauge Theories
The Sign Problem in Lattice QCD
QCD in External Fields
Neutron stars
