The spectrum, decays, form factors and weak interactions of heavy hadrons and their properties in hot and dense matter have captured the interest of particle and nuclear physicists over the past years. Several experiments have been designed in order to extract information on heavy hadrons, such as BESIII, BelleII, ALICE, LHCb, Jlab, amongst others, whereas future facilities are being planned, e.g. FAIR, NICA and the J-PARC upgrade. On the other hand, various theoretical approaches have emerged as a complementary tool to study the heavy (flavored) meson and baryon spectrum, their strong, electric and weak interactions and decays. In view of the present state of theory and experiment, the proposed workshop aims at fostering active discussions and building up networks between theorists and experimentalists working on the physics of heavy hadrons. In particular, the topics covered by the workshop are: Heavy Hadrons on the Lattice, Nonperturbative Continuum QCD Approaches, Spectrum of Heavy Hadrons, Heavy Hadron Production and Decays, Effective Theories in Heavy Quarkonia, Interactions of Charmed Mesons with Nuclear Matter, Heavy Hadrons in Hot-Dense Matter, Transition Form Factors and Neutral Meson Oscillations and CP violation.
