Recent years have brought about important advances in the experimental measurements and theoretical understanding of jets and heavy flavor production in hadronic and nuclear collisions. With results from the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) and Large hadron Collider (LHC) proton-proton and heavy ion runs I at hand, this is the opportune time for a focused discussion between the high energy and nuclear theory communities. This workshop will bring together senior researchers, postdoctoral fellows and talented graduate students to discuss the exciting recent developments and future directions in high energy and nuclear science. The purpose of the Santa Fe Jets and Heavy Flavor workshop is to summarize the accomplishments and provide guidance for the community effort in the areas of hadronic jets, quarkonia and open heavy flavor with emphasis on perturbative Quantum Chromodynamics (pQCD) and Soft Collinear Effective Theory (SCET). The theory is closely tied to experiments at the leading nuclear and particle physics facilities in the US and abroad, such as the RHIC at Brookhaven National Lab and the LHC complex at CERN. The workshop is also central to the physics goals of the next-generation nuclear physics facility in the US, the Electron Ion Collider (EIC).

Hosted by Los Alamos National Laboratory.

Local organizing committee: Ivan Vitev (chair), Cesar da Silva, Zhongbo Kang, Christopher Lee, Mike McCumber.

Sponsors: DOE Office of Science and Early Career Research Program, and LANL.
