CPOD 2013 March 11-15 2013 Napa, California, USA
The purpose of the CPOD workshop series is to discuss theoretical and experimental progress in studies of the QCD phase diagram and properties of strongly interacting matter at high temperature and density. Particular emphasis is put on the physics at non-zero baryon number density.
CPOD 2009 June 8-12, 2009 Brookhaven National Laboratory, Long Island, New York, USA
This is the 5th workshop in a series that started 2004 with a workshop at the ECT* in Trento. Subsequent meetings were held at the University of Bergen in 2005, at the Galileo Galilei Institute in Florence in 2006 and the GSI/Darmstadt in 2007. The purpose of the workshop series is to discuss theoretical and experimental progress in studies of the QCD phase diagram and properties of strongly interacting matter at high temperature and density. Particular emphasis is put on the physics at non-zero baryon number density that shall be probed in future low energy experiments at BNL, CERN, GSI and JINR.
CPOD07 July 9 - 13, 2007 Darmstadt, Germany

The following topics will be addressed:

  • Deconfinement phase transition and QCD critical endpoint
  • Equation-of-state of strongly interacting matter
  • Chiral symmetry restoration
  • Lattice QCD calculations and effective models
  • Correlations and fluctuations
  • Experimental results from SPS and RHIC
  • Future experiments
CPOD2006 July 3-6 2006 Florence, Italy

The 3rd edition of the conference Critical Point and the Onset of Deconfinement was held in Florence, at the Galileo Galilei Institute for theoretical physics from July 3rd to 6th 2006. The goal of the conference was to get together experimental and theoretical physicists active in the field to discuss most relevant theoretical and phenomenological issues in the physics of ultrarelativistic heavy ion collisions.
