The Santa Fe Jets and Heavy Flavor workshop will take place February 3-5, 2020 in Downtown Santa Fe, NM. The meeting will consist of invited and contributed talks, registration is now open at http://www.cvent.com/d/jyqh1d/1Q and abstracts can be submitted for consideration.

Recent years have brought about important advances in the experimental measurements and theoretical understanding of hadron, jet, and heavy flavor production in hadronic and nuclear collisions. New results from the Jefferson Laboratory (CEBAF), Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) and the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in proton and heavy ion collisions are becoming available. Jets and heavy flavor programs at RHIC (sPHENIX) and the future electron-ion collider (EIC) are under active development. This is an opportune time for a focused discussion between the high energy and nuclear physics communities on the interpretation of the data and on how to maximize the impact of future measurements.
This workshop will bring together senior researchers, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students to discuss the exciting recent developments and future directions in high energy and nuclear science. The purpose of the 2020 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 CEBAF at Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility, 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).

This is the fifth year for this workshop following a very successful workshops in Santa Fe and Los Angeles. Santa Fe Jets and Heavy Flavor workshops bring approximately 60 attendees each from the US and abroad. 

Organizing committee: Ivan Vitev (chair), Cesar da Silva, Christopher Lee, Xuan Li, Duff Neill
