we plan to address the following issues:

  1. Bullet QCD thermodynamics with lattice simulations and phenomenological models

  1. Bullet Microscopic origin of the small shear viscosity of the Quark Gluon Plasma which has been experimentally observed

  1. Bullet QCD phase diagram, existence and position of the critical point from first principles

  1. Bullet Degrees of freedom in the vicinity of the QCD phase transition

  1. Bullet Freeze-out conditions in heavy-ion collisions

  1. Bullet Chiral symmetry restoration

we organize the following international schools and conferences :
