Over the last decade it has become apparent that the gauge/string duality is a powerful tool for unearthing various features of large classes of strongly coupled systems, enabling first principle calculations in the regimes unaccessible before. A very significant part of these developments was motivated by the physics of non-perturbative phases of QCD (spectrum of hadrons, chiral symmetry breaking, the phase diagram, real-time dynamics, etc.). The goal of the workshop is to discuss recent progress and challenges of holography with applications to QCD.
