In the coming years, experiments at Fermilab and at J-PARC plan to reduce the uncertainties on the already very precisely measured anomalous magnetic moment of the muon by a factor of four. The goal is to resolve the current tantalizing tension between theory and experiment of three to four standard deviations.  On the theory side the hadronic corrections to the anomalous magnetic moment are the dominant sources of uncertainty. They must be determined with better precision in order to unambiguously discover whether or not new physics effects contribute to this quantity.

There are a number of complementary theoretical efforts underway to better understand and quantify the hadronic corrections, including dispersive methods, lattice QCD, effective field theories, and QCD models. We have formed a new theory initiative to facilitate interactions between the different groups through organizing a series of workshops. The goal of this first workshop is to bring together theorists from the different communities to discuss, assess, and compare the status of the various efforts, and to map out strategies for obtaining the best theoretical predictions for these hadronic corrections in advance of the experimental results.

All sessions in this workshop will be plenary, featuring a mix of talks and discussions.
