The aim of the workshop is to bring together experimentalists from different experiments as well as theoreticians, to discuss the various mechanisms of particle production that can be inferred from the last experimental results and to refine our perspective for the future studies at the LHC, both on p-p and in heavy-ion collisions. In fact, the study of the high density matter and its possible influence on hadron formation at the new energies available at LHC could reveal a lot of surprises also for particle production in p-p collisions. Heavy ion results at RHIC have shown an interplay between 'soft' and 'hard' mechanisms in hadron production. What are the results and the expetations for the new energy regime? The properties of hadrons in dense and hot nuclear matter are expected to be modified. What are the experimental evidences? Last but not least, strangeness production is one of the oldest probe of strongly interacting matter and the production of strange particles is an important benchmark test for QCD-inspired models and for statistical hadronization models in p-p and in nucleus-nucleus collisions.
