It is of increasing importance to probe the non-perturbative properties
of a quark-gluon plasma (QGP) theoretically and experimentally.
There are many insights and indications provided by the experimental data
from RHIC and more abundant data are already being reported from the
heavy-ion collision experiment at LHC.
Theoretically, approaches based on AdS/CFT (and holographic QCD models)
and lattice QCD are found to be powerful tools to study the spectral
properties of quarks and hadrons under extreme conditions. In addition,
phenomena induced by topological effects (quantum anomaly,
dynamics of vortices, etc) are under active debates, which
also sheds light on non-perturbative aspects of gauge theory.
From the point of view of theoretical approaches to strongly correlated
matter, the implication from analogous systems in condensed matter physics
such as ultra cold atoms is of use to investigate the QGP properties
The aims of this workshop are to summarize the current status of
these theoretical approaches and to explore new directions toward the
understanding of strongly interacting quarks and gluons at high energy
