Title: What strange particles can tell us about hadronic matter and what hadronic matter tells us about strange particles

Speaker: Prof. Joerg Aichelin, SUBATECH, EMN, Nantes, France

Abstract: In heavy-ion reactions mesons can probe the hadronic matter and the observables reveal properties of hadronic matter like the hadronic equation of state. On the other hand, hadronic matter changes the properties of mesons and the observables allow also for measuring this change. We discuss in detail what we have learned from the observation of strange mesons in heavy-ion reactions close to the production threshold in the last years and what can still be learned.
