Hadrons under extreme conditions
COST THOR Working Group I Meeting
COST Action CA15213
Tuesday 12th September - Thursday 14th September 2017
organisers: Gert Aarts (Swansea University), Simon Hands (Swansea University) & Andreas
Schmitt (Southampton University)
The purpose of the workshop is to bring together a small group of researchers
working on hadronic matter under extreme conditions, both at nonzero temperature and
density, in the context of lattice QCD, effective models, the hadron resonance gas and
During the three-day meeting, we plan to have 4/5 talks a day, so that there will be
ample time to discuss, formulate open questions and establish new insights.
The workshop will be centred around the following question:
What happens to hadrons at nonzero temperature and density?
Specific interests will focus on baryons, hadron resonance gas and its extensions, parity
doubling (both at finite T and finite mu), quarkonia, effective models vs lattice QCD vs
