First circular

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that the 17th International Conference on QCD in Extreme Conditions (XQCD 2019) will be held in Tokyo from 24 to 26 June 2019. XQCD is a series of international workshop-style conferences, held annually, which aims to cover recent advances in the theory and phenomenology of QCD under extreme conditions of temperature and/or baryon density, together with related topics. The conference will occur in the week after the lattice conference in Wuhan (China)

The program starts on Monday, June 24, at 9:00 and ends on Wednesday, June 26, at 18:00. There will be invited and selected plenary talks as well as a poster session.

Major topics include:

  • QCD thermodynamics
  • QCD phase diagram
  • QCD at finite density
  • QCD in external fields
  • Heavy ion collision phenomenology

More information is available in the conference website:


- Venue
The conference will take place at Tokyo Campus, University of Tsukuba, which is located in a very convenient area close to downtown Tokyo. The closest railway station is Myogadani, which is about 15 minutes from Tokyo station.
