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
It will take place in the cultural and congress centre of small charming
historical town of
