The past decade has greatly increased our understanding of criticality in the strongly interacting matter related to the deconfinement of color and the chiral symmetry restoration. Essential progress is coming from confronting lattice QCD and effective model calculations with data from heavy-ion collision experiments. In this workshop we want to focus on an aspect of the thermodynamics of strong interaction matter which found much attention recently: the role and applicability of hadron resonance gas (HRG) based models in the vicinity of the QCD transition from confined phase to quark-gluon plasma, their comparison to lattice QCD calculations and experimental data from heavy-ion collisions.
