Heavy-ion collisions generate a huge magnetic field of the order of 1018 G for a duration of about 0.2 fm/c. This time may become an order of magnitude longer if the electrical conductivity of quark matter is large. We calculate the conductivity in the regime of high density and show that contrary to naive expectations it only weakly depends on the magnetic field.
