The 2021 Meeting on Lattice Parton Physics from Large-Momentum Effective Theory (LaMET 2021) will be held online by Center for Nuclear Femtography (CNF) at SURA in Washington DC. The meeting will take place from Dec. 7-9, 2021. Registration is open now at, and abstracts can be submitted for presentation. The deadline for abstract submission is 12:00 AM EST, Nov. 15, 2021.

Large-momentum effective theory (LaMET) is based on the field theoretical realization of Feynman parton model in which PDFs are momentum distributions of quarks and gluons in an infinite momentum hadron state. One can start from the momentum distributions in a hadron with finite but large momentum, which can be calculated in Euclidean approaches such as lattice QCD, and then expand the results systematically. The leading term is the PDFs after proper field-theoretical matching and running. Over the past years, LaMET has enabled much progress in the lattice QCD calculation of PDFs as well as GPDs and TMDs. The lattice data for LaMET calculations can also be analyzed in coordinate-space factorization approaches to get moments of PDFs or $x$-distributions through phenomenological parametrizations.  

Due to the current situation with Covid-19, LaMET 2021 will be held using Zoom video conferencing and a Slack working space for participants to interact with each other. Zoom and Slack will be open to registered participants only. To accommodate participants around the world, talks will start 9:00am and end at 12:05pm in US EST. We will first consider talks on newly published works, and priority will be given to postdocs and advanced students.
