Compact stars in the QCD phase diagram

Our Mission

To bring together scientists from QCD exploring the phases of Quark Matter and astrophysicists working on Compact Stars and related Phenomena such as Gamma Ray Bursts. Claims of identification of quark stars and the renewed interests on quark matter at extreme conditions lead to interesting presentations and discussions of how the two communities could learn from each other and work together in the future. We hope that these proceedings would serve as a pedagogical tool for those interested in studying exotic forms of matter and their plausible implications/signatures on/in astrophysical phenomena.
