Scientific Program

Quark Matter 2019 brings together physicists from around the world to discuss new developments in high energy heavy-ion physics. The focus is on the fundamental understanding of strongly-interacting matter at extreme conditions of high temperature and density, as formed in ultra-relativistic nucleus-nucleus collisions. In these conditions, which also characterised the early Universe, matter appears as a Quark-Gluon Plasma, with quarks and gluons not confined within hadrons.

The scientific topics addressed by this conference are:

  • - QCD at finite temperature and baryon density
  • - Initial state and approach to equilibrium
  • - Small systems
  • - Collective dynamics
  • - Search for the critical end point
  • - Chirality, vorticity and spin polarization
  • - Jet modifications and medium response
  • - Heavy flavor and quarkonium
  • - Electromagnetic probes
  • - Quark matter and nuclear astrophysics
  • - New theoretical developments
  • - Future facilities and instrumentation
