Topical Workshop on
  Quarks and Hadrons under Extreme Conditions
- AdS/QCD, Lattice QCD, and Physics at RHIC/LHC -

  May 18 (Mon.)-19 (Tues.),  2009
room 1320, 3rd floor, Sci. Building 4, Hongo, Univ. Tokyo

Aim of the workshop:

  There are growing theoretical and experimental interests on the properties of quarks and hadrons
in the quark-gluon plasma (QGP) created by the relativistic heavy-ion collisions at RHIC and at
future LHC. Some examples are jets, heavy quarks,  scalar and vector mesons inside
the quark-gluon matter. Theoretically,  approaches based on AdS/QCD and lattice QCD are found
to be powerful tools to study the  spectral properties of quarks and hadrons under extreme conditions. 
The aims of this topical workshop are to summarize  the current status of these theoretical approaches
and to explore new directions  toward the understanding of strongly interacting quarks and gluons
at high energy density.
