Holographic QCD
22-26 July 2019 Nordita, Stockholm



Nordita, Stockholm, Sweden


In the last few years there has been renewed interest in QCD and hadronic dynamics using holographic gauge/gravity duality, resurge of the large N methods, progress in string models, integrability, unitarity and bootstrap and more. Also, many new experimental results were reported by ALICE at LHC regarding collectivization in pp and pA collisions, by LHCb at CERN and the B- and C-factories regarding the existence of exotics and the spectroscopy of heavy-light systems, and more recently the reporting of 2 neutron star mergers by the LIGO collaboration and its constraint on the nuclear dense equation of state.

This conference will bring together practitioners of these interdisciplinary fields to discuss these exciting new developments, and explore the relevance of the holographic framework for addressing these observations. The conference is meant to be interdisciplinary but focused on practical aspects that will help address some of the salient parts of the experiments and suggest novel measurements or QCD lattice simulations. For instance, the collectivization reported by the ALICE will be sought using holographic strings, the exotics and new spectroscopy reported by LHCb will be sought through the use of novel holographic string descriptions, while dense hadronic matter will be sought through holography and large N techniques.

The conference is preceded by a related event, Integrability in Gauge and String Theories 2019.
