Exploration of the QCD phase diagram has been one of the main programs of contemporary nuclear physics. The intermediate baryon density region covers a broad range of the baryon chemical potential, between 100 and 700 MeV, and is expected to include a possible critial point at the end of a phase equilibrium curve between the hadron gas and quark gluon plasma phases. Experimental programs at the SPS and RHIC facilities have provided valuable insights in this range. These proceedings motivate the exploration of the QCD phase diagram through the use of strangeness. A selection of relevant experimental results from RHIC and SPS beam energy scan programs with associated theoretical predictions is presented along with a discussion of possible physical conclusions and future plans.
