July 22 - July 24, 2020 - NTNU, Trondheim, Norway

NTNU og UiS logoerThe 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.

The XCQD2020 PhD school will be held at the University of Stavanger from July 17th to July 20th 2020, right before the XQCD 2020 conference. The school will feature block lectures 6 x 45min on four research areas, which are central elements of the studies presented at the XQCD conference, providing an in-depth review of these fields for PhD students.
