Various phenomena in medium energy nuclear physics involve non-perturbative study of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) and the workshop will focus on some aspects of these. 

One topic of focus during the workshop will be the phase diagram of QCD in the temperature (T) -baryon chemical potential (μB) plane. The beam energy scan runs in the Relativistic heavy ion collider (RHIC) as well as upcoming experiments in GSI, Darmstadt and at JINR, Dubna all have the QCD phase diagram as their main physics goal. Substantial progress has also been made in finding the QCD equation of state for small μB and the study of the QCD critical point, using lattice QCD.

Progress has also been made in understanding the dynamical properties of the quark gluon plasma (QGP) created in heavy ion collisions at RHIC and the LHC, both experimentally and theoretically.

Other recent developments in QCD that will be covered include the computation of the distribution functions of hadrons, large N QCD, and position space approaches.
