General information

The international conference "Strangeness in Quark Matter 2007" will focus on the physics of strangeness and heavy flavour (c,b) production in hadronic and nuclear reactions, including their role in characterizing hot and dense hadronic matter and quark-gluon plasma formation. New results from experiments, as well as from recent theoretical studies will be presented. The forthcoming heavy-ion programme at the LHC will also be discussed. In addition the conference will cover the astrophysical aspects of strangeness. This is a well-established topical conference bringing together experts working in th fields of cosmology, particle and nuclear physics.

It will take place in the cultural and congress centre of small charming historical town of Levoča, in attractive historical region of Spiš in the north-eastern part of Slovakia. The conference wills start on Sunday morning, 24 June 2007, with student lecture day, and will finish with summary talks on Friday, 29 June 2007, around noon.

Previous conferences of this serie were held in Los Angeles (2006), Cape Town (2004), North Carolina (2003), Frankfurt (2001), Berkerley (2000), Padova (1998), Santorini (1997), Budapest (1996), Tucson (1995), Crete (1994), Aarhus (1991).

Young researchers (PhD.students, post-docs) are particularly encouraged to attend the conference and assistance will be available to help support their participation in the meeting.

The proceedings of the conference will be published by Journal of Physics G: Nuclear and Particle Physics.
