        The diffractive dissociation of virtual photons, gamma*p -> X p, has been measured with the ZEUS detector in e+p collisions at HERA. Events were selected either by requiring a large rapidity gap between the system X and the outgoing proton, or by tagging the outgoing proton, or by exploiting the different distribution of the the mass of the system X for diffractive and non diffractive events. The cross section is presented as a function of t, the squared four-momentum transfer at the proton vertex and Phi, the azimuthal angle between the positron scattering plane and the proton scattering plane. The data are also shown in terms of the reduced diffractive cross sections, sigma_r^{D(3)} and sigma_r^{D(4)}.

        Diffractive PDFs 20m
        Differential dijet cross sections in diffractive deep-inelastic scattering are measured with the H1 detector at HERA using an integrated luminosity of 51.5 pb-1. The selected events are of the type ep --> eXY, where the system X contains at least two jets and is well separated in rapidity from the low mass proton dissociation system Y. The dijet data are compared with QCD predictions at next-to-leading order based on diffractive parton distribution functions previously extracted from measurements of inclusive diffractive deep-inelastic scattering. The prediction describes the dijet data well at low and intermediate zpom (the fraction of the momentum of the diffractive exchange carried by the parton entering the hard interaction) where the gluon density is well determined from the inclusive diffractive data, supporting QCD factorisation. A new set of diffractive parton distribution functions is obtained through a simultaneous fit to the diffractive inclusive and dijet cross sections. This allows for a precise determination of both the diffractive quark and gluon distributions in the range 0.05

        Dijets in diffractive DIS and photoproduction 25m
        The recent results on diffractive dijet production measured with the ZEUS detector in ep collisions at HERA, are presented. Two sets of data, corresponding to highly virtual (DIS) and nearly real photon (PHP), are shown. The results are compared to the NLO QCD predictions with the emphasis on possible observation of the factorisation breaking for soft photons. The uncertainties of 20-30% of the NLO predictions are pointed out, Within these uncertainties the data are compatible with no factorisation breaking although some small suppression <~ 20% is not excluded.

        DeltaG/G from Open Charm Events at COMPASS 20m
        One of the main goals of the COMPASS experiment at CERN is to measure the gluon polarization, $DeltaG/G$ in the nucleon, which can be accessed through spin asymmetries of polarized photon-gluon fusion processes (PGF). A very clean way to tag PGF events is to look for charmed mesons, such as D* or D0, in the final state. All COMPASS data taken with a deuteron target (2002-2006) are analysed. Since this channel is statistically limited, a weighted method was developed to minimize the statistical error. In the new analysis presented here, the weight is improved and contains more information on the probability for an event for being a PGF process. The new weighting has been applied on already released 2002-2004 data but also on data taken in 2006, resulting in a statistical error reduced by a factor 1.7.

        Measurements of $\Delta G/G$ from high transverse momentum hadrons pairs in COMPASS 20m
        A new COMPASS value of $\Delta G/G$, obtained from high transverse momentum hadrons pairs in the $Q^{2}>1$ (GeV/$c$)$^{2}$ region is presented. The statistical error of $\Delta G/G$ ($\approx 0.094$) is reduced by a factor 3 in comparison to the previous analysis in the same kinematic region. The new measurement is based on a neural network approach using weighted events. In addition the formula used for the extraction of $\Delta G/G$ has been updated and the contributions coming from the leading order or the QCD Compton processes are no longer neglected. Finally the results obtained for the $Q^{2}<1$ (GeV/$c$)$^{2}$ region are also presented.

        Diffractive gluon production at high parton density 20m
        We calculate multiplicity and spectrum of diffractively produced gluons in onium-nucleus collisions which include the low-x evolution in all rapidity intervals. We demonstrate that the diffractive gluon production exhibits a characteristic dependence on energy, rapidity, transverse momentum and atomic number that opens a new avenue towards the phenomenological applications in eA and pA collisions.

        Proton elastic impact factors for 2,3 and 4 gluons 20m
        The scattering of a baryon consisting of three massive quarks is investigated in the high energy limit of perturbative QCD. We derive the elastic impact factors for 2, 3 and 4 gluons, and study the energy evolution of the corresponding elastic scattering amplitudes. We find that the baryon couples to the BFKL Pomeron, the BKP odderon and a new BKP Pomeron state composed of three Reggeons. This new state is found to decay into two BFKL Pomerons via a new $3\to 4$ Reggeon transition vertex. Implications of these findings for the unitarization of high energy baryon scattering amplitudes are discussed.

        Searching for the odderon in the exclusive vector meson hadroproduction 20m
        The $J/\psi$ and $\Upsilon$ production in high energy proton-proton and proton-antiproton collisions is studied. Estimates are presented of the odderon-Pomeron and photon-Pomeron contributions to these production processes at the Tevatron and at the LHC. Differences between the kinematical distributions of the produced mesons are pointed out that should allow to distinguish between the photon and the odderon contributions. Uncertainties of the estimates are discussed.

        Electroproduction of two-light vector mesons from collinearly improved BFKL kernel 20m
        We show that the use of a collinearly BFKL kernel in the NLA amplitude for the electroproduction of two light vector mesons leads to a smooth behavior of the amplitude with the center-of-mass energy, both for equal and strongly ordered photons' virtualities. Moreover, the optimal values of the energy scales appearing in the subleading terms turn out to be closer to the kinematical scales of the process than in the approaches based on the use of an unimproved kernel.

        Exclusive dilepton and Upsilon production with CMS 20m
        Exclusive production of dileptons with no significant additional activity in the CMS detector occurs with high cross section in gamma-mediated processes at the LHC. Selecting events with a single back-to-back $\mu^{+}\mu^{-}$ or $e^{+}e^{-}$ pair provides a high-statistics calibration sample, e.g. for luminosity measurements and aligment of forward proton detectors. Photoproduction of Upsilon mesons is another copious source of exclusive dileptons. We discuss the clear visibility of the three Upsilon resonances already after 100 pb^{-1} of integrated luminoFsity.

        Systematic Analysis of Scaling Properties in Deep Inelastic Scattering 20m
        Using the ``Quality Factor'' (QF) method, we analyse the scaling properties of deep-inelastic processes cross-sections at HERA for $x<10^{-2}.$ We look for scaling formulae of the form $\sigma ^{\gamma^*p}(\tau),$ where $\tau (L\!=\!\log Q^2,Y)$ is a scaling variable proposed in the literature and suggested by the asymptotic properties of QCD evolution equations with rapidity $Y$. We consider four cases: ``Fixed Coupling'', corresponding to the original geometric scaling proposal and motivated by the asymptotic properties of the Balitsky-Kovchegov (BK) equation with {\it fixed} QCD coupling constant, two versions ``Running Coupling I,II'' of the scaling suggested by the BK equation with {\it running} coupling, and ``Diffusive Scaling'' suggested by the QCD evolution equation with Pomeron loops. The Quality Factors, quantifying the phenomenological validity of the candidate scaling variables, are fitted on the total and DVCS cross-section data and predictions are made for the elastic vector-meson and for the diffractive cross-sections at fixed small $x_{\cal P}$ or $\beta.$The first three scaling formulae have comparably good QF while the fourth one is disfavored. Parametrizing non-asymptotic contributions gives a significant improvement of the ``Running Coupling II'' scaling.

        Exclusive Photoproduction of Vector Mesons in Hadronic and Nuclear Interactions 20m
        Exclusive photoproduction of vector mesons have been studied in electron-proton and electron-nucleus interactions, for example at HERA, and lately also in heavy-ion collisions at the Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collider (RHIC) at BNL[1,2]. Mid-rapidity photoproduction of heavy vector mesons in proton-proton and nucleus-nucleus collisions at RHIC and the Large Hadron Collider at CERN is a sensitive probe of the gluon distribution in protons and nuclei. The results from RHIC will be summarized and the expectated cross section for vector meson production at the LHC will be presented. Experimental techniques for identifying photoproduced vector mesons in hadronic and nuclear collisions will be discussed.

        NMSSM Higgs Boson Production with Tagged Protons 20m
        The simplest supersymmetric model that solves the mu-problem and in which the GUT-scale parameters need not be finely tuned in order to predict the correct value of the Z boson mass is the Next-to-Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (NMSSM). However, in order that fine-tuning be absent, the lightest CP-even Higgs boson h should have mass around 100 GeV and SM couplings to gauge bosons and fermions. The only way that this can be consistent with LEP limits is if h decays primarily to four tau particles. Interestingly, this scenario is natural in the NMSSM. Detection of any of the NMSSM Higgs bosons at the LHC in this preferred scenario will be very challenging using conventional channels. We demonstrate that the four-tau decay mode should be visible if the Higgs is produced in the process pp -> p+h+p with the final state protons being measured using suitably installed forward detectors.

        Forward physics program with CMS at the LHC 20m
        Forward physics with CMS at the LHC covers a wide range of physics subjects, including very low-x QCD, underlying event and multiple interactions characteristics, photon-mediated processes, shower development at the energy scale of primary cosmic ray interactions with the atmosphere, diffraction in the presence of a hard scale and even MSSM Higgs discovery in central exclusive production. The status of the forward detector instrumentation of CMS, and the preparations for analysing the first LHC data will be discussed.

        Transverse spin physics at COMPASS 20m
        The study of transverse spin effects is part of the scientific program of COMPASS, a fixed target experiment at the CERN SPS. COMPASS investigates the transversity PDF in semi-inclusive DIS, using a longitudinally polarized muon beam of 160~GeV/c impinging on transversely polarized nucleons. From 2002 to 2004, a $^6$LiD target has been used; in these data transversity has been measured using different quark polarimeters: azimuthal distribution of single hadrons, azimuthal dependence of the plane containing hadron pairs, and measurement of transverse polarization of baryons ($\lambda$ hyperons). All the asymmetries have been found to be small, and compatible with zero, a result that has been interpreted as cancellation between the u and d-quark contribution in the deuteron. Complementary information on transverse spin effects will be obtained analyzing the data taken by COMPASS in 2007 using a NH$_3$ target.

        DVCS and its t-dependence at HERA-2 20m
        A measurement of elastic deeply virtual Compton scattering gamma* p -> gamma p using e-p collision data recorded with the H1 detector at HERA is presented. The analysed data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 145 pb^-1. The cross section is measured as a function of the virtuality Q^2 of the exchanged photon and the centre-of-mass energy W of the gamma*p system in the kinematic domain 6.5 < Q^2 < 80 GeV^2, 30 < W < 140 GeV and |t| < 1 GeV^2, where t denotes the squared momentum transfer at the proton vertex. The cross section is determined differentially in t for different Q^2 and W values and exponential t-slope parameters are derived. The measurements are compared to a NLO QCD calculation based on generalised parton distributions. In the context of the dipole approach, the geometric scaling property of the DVCS cross section is studied for different values of t.
