Abstract: Heavy-ion collisions at BNL’s Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider 
and CERN’s Large Hadron Collider provide strong evidence for the formation 
of a quark-gluon plasma. Effective weak-coupling QCD descriptions and
strong-coupling holographic approaches support the rapid thermalization
picture in large collision systems. The outstanding question in QCD is
whether the hydrodynamically-flowing quark-gluon matter forms in even
smaller collision systems. On the opposite end of the energy scale, the
emerging collectivity in strongly-correlated few-body systems can also
be studied in table-top experiments with ultracold atomic gases. In this
talk, I will review the state of the art of QCD thermalization studies
and identify promising connections with cold-atom experiments.
