Workshop on Electromagnetic Effects on Multiparticle Systems

October 25-28, 2022

ICTP-SAIFR, São Paulo, Brazil

Auditorium of IFT-UNESP


The effects of electromagnetic fields in strongly interacting matter have been the subject of intense activity over the past ten years, involving researchers from different communities such as Heavy-Ion physics, Lattice QCD, Astrophysics, Ads/CFT, Magneto-Hydrodynamics, and formal aspects of Quantum Field Theory among others.

Recent experimental achievements like the measurement of lambda polarization and the results from isobar collisions at RHIC, as well as the perspective of new facilities like NICA and FAIR performing heavy ion collisions in lower energies and higher chemical potential, motivate us to bring together experimentalists and theoreticians in this workshop to discuss the role of electromagnetic backgrounds in the following topics:

– Isobar collisions
– QCD phase diagram and the critical point
– Lattice QCD
– Particle production
– The chiral magnetic effect
– Lambda polarization
– Magneto-hydrodynamics
– AdS/CFT approaches for QCD
– Neutron stars
– Color superconductivity
– Relativistic-like phenomena in condensed matter

Visa information: Nationals from several countries in Latin America and Europe are exempt from tourist visa. The Brazilian government announced that effective June 17, 2019, a visitor visa (electronic or paper) will not be required for U.S. citizens to travel to Brazil for the purposes of tourism, business, transit and artistic and sportive activities, for stays of up to 90 days. Nationals from Australia, Canada and Japan can apply for an e-visa through VSF Global. Please check here which nationals need a tourist visa to enter Brazil.

Hotel recommendation: Participants and Speakers whose accommodation will be provided by the institute will stay at The Universe Flat.

How to reach the Institute: The workshop will be held at ICTP South American Institute, located at IFT-UNESP, which is across the street from a major bus and subway terminal (Terminal Barra Funda). The address which is closer to the entrance of the IFT-UNESP building is R. Jornalista Aloysio Biondi, 120 – Barra Funda, São Paulo. The easiest way to reach us is by subway or bus, please find instructions here.

Yellow fever vaccination is recommended for travellers going to Brazil. Note that the vaccine needs to be taken at least ten days before the trip to be effective. Information:
