Dear Colleagues,

We would like to inform you that the 15th International Conference on QCD in Extreme Conditions (XQCD 2017) will be held in Pisa from Monday, 26 June to Wednesday, 28 June 2017.

XQCD is a series of international workshop-style conferences, held annually, which aims to cover recent advances in the theory and phenomenology of QCD under extreme conditions of temperature and/or baryon density, together with related topics.

Major topics include:
  • 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 and Other Theories
  • QCD in External Fields
The program will consist of plenary talks and a poster session.

Coffee breaks and lunches will be served on site. A welcome reception will take place on Sunday, 25 June in the evening. A social dinner will be offered to all participants on Tuesday, 27 June.
