Strangeness in Quark Matter  SQM 2013


Topical conference on Strangeness and Heavy Flavour production in Heavy Ion Collisions.

The conference will focus on new experimental and theoretical developments on the role of strange and heavy-flavour quarks in proton-proton and in heavy-ion collisions, and in astrophysical phenomena. New results are expected, from the LHC, from RHIC and from other experimental programmes.

SQM2013 will be the 14th in the series following the recent events in 2011 in Cracow, 2009 in Buzios, and 2008 in Beijing.
