The Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) organizes the II International Workshop on "Lattice and Functional Techniques for Exploration of Phase Structure and Transport Properties in Quantum Chromodynamics", Dubna, September 4 - 6, 2018.

Inspired by the activities going on in Dubna for the construction of NICA and the preparations of experimentalists for the BM@N and MPD experiments, the Bogoliubov Laboratory for Theoretical Physics of JINR realizes the project "Theory of Hadronic Matter under Extreme Conditions".

This Workshop is the second meeting specifically devoted to the functional and lattice QCD methods in the series of workshops and seminars in support of the project "Theory of Hadronic Matter under Extreme Conditions". It aims at bringing together practioners of QCD lattice thermodynamics with specialists developing functional continuum approaches and to chart promising areas of collaboration or to continue already ongoing collaboration, mainly with the aim to extend the abilities of functional QFT methods and lattice QCD simulations:

— Properties of strongly interacting gauge theories;

— QCD at finite temperature and density;

— QCD in external fields;

— Transport properties of QCD;

— Topology in gauge theories;

— QCD phase transitions.
