Description

The 2022 CTEQ Summer School on QCD and Electroweak Phenomenology will be held at the University of Pittsburgh, PA, USA July 6-16, 2022. The CTEQ school provides a focused introduction to perturbative quantum chromodynamics along with applications and recent experimental results. Additionally, the school will include "hands-on" tutorial sessions on Machine Learning and Monte Carlo event generators organized in concert with the MCnet Collaboration. The school is ideally suited for advanced graduate students and young postdocs.

The school will be held in person.  (We will follow local COVID protocols.)

Note: participants arrive on the evening of Wednesday 6 July 2022, and depart in the morning of Saturday 16 July 2022. Additional details to follow.
