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.
