Advances in QCD and Applications to Hadron Colliders Workshop

Description
There have been exciting recent progress in the field of QCD, including: new understanding of factorization, resummation and power corrections that give insight into effective field theories; a new ability to compute NNLO and beyond perturbative corrections that allow precision jet phenomenology at the LHC and other future colliders; better organizing principles for computing multi-loop corrections; the development of new parton showers with higher-order matching; and, many other new advances. This workshop will bring together a small group of experts to allow for targeted discussions that identify possible future advances that merge these new ideas. The topics we plan to discuss include but are not limited to:
  • Factorization in effective field theory, including the impact of Glauber logs and power corrections;
  • Resummation-based subtraction techniques and their latest precision phenomenology results;
  • Recent advances in parton shower Monte Carlos;
  • New PDFs and the impact of resumation on improving their uncertainty;
  • Combining QCD and electroweak effects in precision observables;
  • Developments in calculating two-loop virtual corrections and beyond.
This is the second year for this workshop following a very successful "Advances in QCD and Applications to Hadron Colliders 2016 Workshop" held at Argonne National Laboratory October 26 - 28, 2016. This year the workshop will be co-sponsored by Mani L. Bhaumik Institute for Theoretical Physics at UCLA and Argonne National Laboratory. The workshop will be held at UCLA Department of Physics and Astronomy, which is located in the Physics and Astronomy Building (PAB) and Knudsen Hall. PAB and Knudsen Hall are connected and located northewest of the intersection between Hilgard Avenue and Westholme Avenue. To view an interactive campus map, visit the UCLA maps website. The conference room will be on the fourth floor of PAB building, room 4-330.
