This year’s meeting is organised by the Centre for Mathematical Science (CMS) at Plymouth University.

The list of topics is:

  • QCD phase diagram
  • Quantum Field Theories of dense, cold matter and the sign problem
  • Properties of the quark-gluon plasma
  • Heavy ion collision experiments
  • Condensed matter systems
  • Strongly interacting Dark Matter
  • Mathematics of inverse problems.
