        Deep inelastic cross section measurements at large y with the ZEUS detector at HERA 23m
        The reduced cross sections for $e^{+}p$ deep inelastic scattering have been measured with the ZEUS detector at HERA at three different centre-of-mass energies, $318$, $251$ and $225$ GeV. The cross sections, measured double differentially in Bjorken $x$ and the virtuality, $Q^2$, were obtained in the region $0.13\ \leq\ y\ \leq\ 0.75$ and $5\ \leq\ Q^2\ \leq\ 110$ GeV$^2$, where $y$ denotes the inelasticity. The proton structure functions $F_2$ and $F_L$ were extracted from the measured cross sections.

        Measurement of Inclusive ep Cross Sections at High Q2 at sqrt(s) = 225 and 252 GeV and of the Longitudinal Proton Structure Function FL at HERA 23m
        Inclusive ep double differential cross sections for neutral current deep inelastic scattering are measured with the H1 detector at HERA. The data were taken with a lepton beam energy of 27.6 GeV and two proton beam energies of Ep = 460 and 575 GeV corresponding to centre-of-mass energies of 225 and 252 GeV, respectively. The measurements cover the region of 6.5x10^-4 ≤x ≤0.65 for 35≤Q^2≤800 GeV^2 up to y = 0.85. The measurements are used together with previously published H1 data at Ep = 920 GeV and lower Q^2 data at Ep = 460, 575 and 920 GeV to extract the longitudinal proton structure function FL in the region 1.5≤Q^2≤800 GeV^2.

        Measurement of neutral current e±p cross sections at high Bjorken x with the ZEUS detector 24m
        The neutral current $e^\pm p$ cross section has been measured up to values of Bjorken $x\cong 1$ with the ZEUS detector at HERA using an integrated luminosity of 187 ${\rm pb}^{-1}$ of $e^-p$ and 142 ${\rm pb}^{-1}$ of $e^+p$ collisions at $\surd s = 318$ GeV. Differential cross sections in $x$ and $Q^2$, the exchanged boson virtuality, are presented for $Q^2 \geq 725$ GeV$^2$. An improved reconstruction method and greatly increased amount of data allows a finer binning in the high-$x$ region of the neutral current cross section and leads to a measurement with much improved precision compared to a similar earlier analysis. The measurements are compared to Standard Model expectations based on a variety of recent parton distribution functions.

        A combination is presented of all inclusive deep inelastic cross sections measured by the H1 and ZEUS collaborations in neutral and charged current unpolarised $e^{\pm}p$ scattering at HERA. The data were taken between 1994 and 2007. They span six orders of magnitude in negative four-momentum-transfer squared, $Q^2$, and in Bjorken $x$. The combination method used takes the correlations of systematic uncertainties into account, resulting in an improved accuracy.

        Electroweak Corrections to Vector Boson Pair Production 20m
        Vector-boson pair production plays an important role for present and future LHC experiments. Such processes allow for a solid validation of the weak sector of the SM and, moreover, provide the opportunity to search for effects of anomalous couplings predicted by various New-Physics models. To improve on the corresponding theory predictions, we present the computation of the NLO electroweak corrections to vector-boson pair production at hadron colliders. Consistently including all mass effects, our predictions are valid in all kinematic regions accessible at the LHC. The corresponding corrections are moderate at low energies, but reach several tens of percent going to higher transverse momenta or invariant masses, respectively, leading to significant distortions of transverse-momentum and rapidity distributions. To allow for a realistic event definition we include leptonic decays of the vector bosons, where spin correlations are properly taken care of. We also propose a simple and straight-forward Monte Carlo implementation of our results within the HERWIG++ setup which could be applied to further processes in the future.

These include Higgs measurements in ZZ and WW decay modes, precise measurements of W and Z production in association with a photon and of WW production, WZ and ZZ productions at the LHC.The leptonic decay modes of the W and Z bosons are used. Semi-leptonic decay modes of WW+WZ final state are also shown. The results are interpreted in terms of constraints on anomalous triple gauge couplings.

        A measurement of the cross section for 4 lepton production near the Z resonance is presented for sqrt(s) = 7 and 8 TeV pp collisions recorded with the ATLAS experiment. The measurement is interpreted as a determination of the branching fraction for the Z boson decaying into 4 leptons and is foundconsistent with the expectation from the Standard Model. This result provides an important benchmark for the H->4l process.

        Multi-boson Production in Weak Boson Fusion 20m
        The production of electro-weak bosons via weak boson fusion is an important process at the LHC, as it allows testing the Standard Model (SM) in various ways. For example, if at least two bosons are produced, Feynman graphs with quartic gauge couplings appear. Therefore, this process class can be used to constrain or discover contributions from anomalous quartic gauge couplings. Also, at large invariant masses of the bosonic system, contributions from intermediate Higgs bosons are necessary to ensure the unitarization of the cross section. Deviations will occur if this unitarization is not complete, because the coupling of the Higgs to gauge bosons deviates from the SM value, or there are further Higgs bosons at higher masses. To facilitate this task, precise theoretical predictions are necessary. In this talk, I will summarize the current theoretical status of higher-order corrections and matching fixed-order calculations with parton shower. Examples will be given how this process class can be used to perform the SM tests mentioned above.

        Production of $W^+ W^-$ pairs via subleading processes at the LHC 20m
        The standard NLO calculations underpredict the measured rates of $W^+ W^-$ production compared to recent ATLAS and CMS experimental data. We discuss new subleading processes for inclusive production of $W^+ W^-$ pairs. We focus on photon-photon induced processes. We include elastic-elastic, elastic-inelastic, inelastic-elastic and inelastic-inelastic contributions. The inelastic photon distributions in the proton are calculated in two different ways: naive approach used already in the literature and using photon distributions by solving special evolution equation with photon being a parton in the proton. The results strongly depend on the approach used. We calculate also contributions with resolved photons. %The diffractive components have similar characteristics as %the photon-photon elastic-inelastic and inelastic-elastic mechanisms. The subleading contributions are compared with the well known $q \bar q$ and $g g$ as well as with double-parton scattering contributions. Predictions for the total cross section and differential distributions in $W$- boson rapidity and transverse momentum as well as $WW$ invariant mass are presented. The $\gamma \gamma$ components constitute only about 1-2 \% of the inclusive $W^+ W^-$ cross section but about 10 \% at large $W^{\pm}$ transverse momenta. We calculate also cross section for single-diffractive production of $W^+ W^-$ pairs including pomeron and subleading reggeon exchanges in the Ingelman-Schlein model. The H1 diffractive parton distributions are used in the calculations. The results are compared to the results of elastic-inelastic (inelastic-elastic) $\gamma \gamma$ processes. M. Luszczak, A.

        Measurement of the electroweak production cross section of dijets associated with vector bosons. 30m
        Measurement of production of vector bosons associated with two forward jets is reported based on 20 fb-1 of data at sqrt(s) = 8 TeV recorded by the ATLAS experiment. The measurement is performed in various fiducial volumes, sensitive to QCD and Electroweak production mechanisms. The electroweak component for single Z boson production is extracted by a fit to the dijet invariant mass distribution in a fiducial region chosen to enhance the electroweak contribution over the dominant background in which the jets are produced via the strong interaction. The measured electroweak cross sections are in good agreement with the Standard Model expectations.

        Measuring the gluon spin contribution to the proton spin in polarized p+p collisions with the PHENIX experiment 30m
        A primary goal of the RHIC Spin program has been to measure $Delta g$, the gluon spin contribution to the proton spin, through the double helicity asymmetry, $A_{LL}$. The PHENIX detector is designed with very good electromagnetic calorimetery, allowing for a high statistics $\pi^0$ $A_{LL}$ measurement. PHENIX results from 2005 and 2006 at $\sqrt{s}=200$ GeV have been used in the DSSV global analysis, and were shown to significantly constrain $Delta g$. PHENIX also has made measurements of charged pion, direct photon and heavy flavor $A_{LL}$. Measurements of neutral pions at large rapidity ($3.1<|\eta|<3.9$) will significantly extend the $x$ range probed in PHENIX towards lower $x$. Analysis is also underway for these channels in the large $\sqrt{s}=500$ GeV data taken in 2011-2013. The status of the PHENIX $A_{LL}$ measurements will be presented, including the final results for the 2009 $\pi^0$ $A_{LL}$ at $\sqrt{s}=200$ GeV.

        Probing Sea Quark and Gluon Polarization at STAR 30m
        One of the primary goals of the spin program at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) is to determine the sea quark and gluon polarization distributions of the proton. The polarization of the sea quarks is probed through the production of $W^{-(+)}$ bosons via the annihilation of $\bar{u}+d\,(\bar{d}+u)$, at leading order. Measurements of the single-spin asymmetry, $A_{L}$, for $W$ and $Z/\gamma^*$ production at $\sqrt{s} = 500$ GeV will be presented, including the new constraints these results place on the antiquark helicity distributions. Recent results on the longitudinal double-spin asymmetry, $A_{LL}$, for inclusive and di-jet production at $\sqrt{s} = 200$ GeV will also be presented. The inclusive jet results provide the first experimental indication of non-zero gluon polarization in the $x$ range probed at RHIC.

        Measurements of parity violating spin asymmetries of the W boson, $W^{\pm} \rightarrow e^{\pm}$, at mid-rapidity with the PHENIX Detector at RHIC 20m
        Precision measurements of polarized parton distributions (PDFs) lie at the heart of unraveling the nucleon spin puzzle. The $u$ and $d$ quark distributions are significantly better constrained than the anti-quark $\overline{u}$ and $\overline{d}$ distributions. A clean way to measure the anti-quark distributions directly, without the dilution of poorly known polarized fragmentation functions, is to measure the parity violating production with p+p collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 500 GeV and its subsequent decay $W \rightarrow e/\mu$. The PHENIX detector is capable of measuring both in the central and forward rapidity respectively. In this talk we will present the status of $W^{\pm} \rightarrow e^{\pm}$ asymmetry measurement based on $\sim$160 pb$^{-1}$ data collected in 2011, 2012, and 2013.

        PHENIX W to mu measurements in polarized proton-proton collisions 20m
        The Parity violation of the weak interaction allows to use real W production in polarized proton-proton collisions as a tool to select both helicity and flavor of the participating quarks and antiquarks. With W+ production one is mostly sensitive to u and dbar quarks while W- production selects d and ubar quarks. The PHENIX experiment at RHIC has been taking data over the past several years at center of mass energies of around 500 GeV to measure W single spin asymmetries in the inclusive decays into muons at forward rapidities. The latest results will be presented.

        First results on A<sub>1</sub><sup>p</sup> and g<sub>1</sub><sup>p</sup> at low x and low Q<sup>2</sup> from COMPASS 30m
        The COMPASS experiment at CERN has collected a large sample of about 700 million events of quasi-real photoproduction in polarised μ+-p scattering using a beam momentum of 160 (GeV/c)2 in 2007 and 200 (GeV/c)2 in 2011. The events have a Bjorken scaling variable in the range 0.00004<x<0.04 and a four-momentum transfer squared in the range 0.001<Q2<1 (GeV/c)2. They allow the most accurate determination to date of the longitudinal double spin asymmetry A1p and of the spin-dependent structure function g1p of the proton in the region of low x and low Q2. These data complement our data for a polarised deuteron target. They have an order of magnitude better precision than the previous SMC results. The preliminary results yield non-zero, positive asymmetries A1p and structure function g1p in the full studied ranges of x and ν, the virtual photon energy. It is the first time that spin effects are observed at such low x.

        A new LO extraction of gluon polarisation from COMPASS DIS data 30m
        A new COMPASS LO evaluation of the gluon polarization in the nucleon is presented. The events in DIS region were re-analyzed and gluon polarization was extracted using the so called all-pT method. In this new method gluon polarization and leading process asymmetry are extracted simultaneously from the same data set using Neural Network approach. The gluon polarization was extracted in three intervals of gluon momentum fraction x_g, while leading process asymmetry in twelve intervals of Bjorken scaling variable x. A reduction of both systematic and statistical uncertainties by more than 50% is achieved comparing to the published result PLB 718 (2013) 922. The results of the current and published analyses are well in agreement. Comparing to the world data of direct gluon polarization extraction in LO analyses the lowest combined statistical and systematic uncertainty is achieved.

        Single hadron double longitudinal spin asymmetries at $p_T\lt 1$ GeV/c measured at COMPASS 30m
        In order to understand why quarks only share about a third of the nucleon spin, quite a few recent experiments have focussed on the measurement of the gluon polarization in the nucleon. To access the gluon polarization, reactions where the Photon Gluon Fusion sensibly contributes are necessary. A way to enhance the PGF contribution in lepton-nucleon or nucleon-nucleon scattering is to study production of hadrons at high transverse momentum where $p_T$ is the hard scale. RHIC has recently measured such double spin asymmetries $A_{LL}(p_T)$ for pion production at high center of mass energies, and inclusion of its data to global fits based on NLO collinear pQCD calculations gives some constraints on the gluon polarization in the range $0.05\lt x_G\lt 0.2\,$ [ref 1]. The validity of the calculations of partonic cross sections at NLO has recently been extended to COMPASS at lower center of mass energies by adding leading-log gluon resummation in the unpolarized case [ref. 2], and they reproduce now within scale uncertainty the cross section for single hadron production as a function of $p_T$ measured recently at COMPASS [ref. 3]. Once extended to the polarized case, $A_{LL}(p_T)$ measurements at COMPASS can also be used to constrain the gluon polarization without uncertainties about validity of the NLO pQCD framework at COMPASS energies. We will present preliminary COMPASS results on double longitudinal spin asymmetries $A_{LL}(p_T)$ for single hadron production measured on the deuteron and the proton at $Q^2\lt1$ GeV$^2$, $p_T\lt 1$ GeV/c and center of mass energy $\sqrt{s}=18$ GeV. All COMPASS data taken from 2002 to 2011 by scattering 160 GeV polarized muons on longitudinally polarized $^6LiD$ and $NH_3$ targets have been used, and the number of hadrons collected with $p_T \lt 1$ GeV/c for this analysis amounts to about 10 millions.

        A review of diffraction at HERA 30m
        Data in which a proton is tagged along the beampipe after the primary interaction represents the cleanest way to measure diffraction. Data from both H1 and ZEUS collaborations on inclusive diffractive deep inelastic scattering, with a tagged proton, have been combined. Inclusive diffractive deep inelastic scattering can be considered as the exchange of a colourless object and is amenable to QCD fits in which the structure of this object, sometimes called a Pomeron, is determined. Given such processes are expected to factorise, such a Pomeron structure can be used to predict the rates of jet production in e.g. diffractive photoproduction. The comparison of jet data with the predictions of next-to-leading order QCD are discussed in the context of factorising breaking. Another way to study diffraction is through the production of vector mesons which is also characterised by a colourless exchange with the proton which in lowest order QCD is realised as a colourless gluon pair. Therefore consideration of the dependence of the $J/\psi$ cross section on the photon-proton centre-of-mass energy is related to the rise of the square of the gluon density towards low values of Bjorken $x$. Comparisons of HERA data with such theories and other data are presented.

        Leptoproduction of vector meson from the small x to the valence region 30m
        Many progress have been made in recent years in the field of exclusive electroproduction of mesons. I will describe different theoretical descriptions of this family of processes within the frameworks of kt- factorization, collinear factorization or modified perturbative approach. We systematically compare theoretical expectations to existing data and discuss the impact of QCD evolution equations and the knowledge of meson distribution amplitudes. At last we make some predictions for typical kinematics of electron ion colliders.

        b-CGC versus IP-Sat and combined HERA data 20m
        We confront the Impact-Parameter dependent Color Glass Condensate dipole (b-CGC) model to the recently released high precision combined HERA data and obtain its parameters. The b-CGC results are then compared to data at small-x for the structure function, the longitudinal structure function, the charm structure function, exclusive vector meson (J/\psi, \phi, \rho) production and Deeply Virtual Compton Scattering (DVCS). We also compare our results with the Impact-Parameter dependent Saturation model (IP-Sat) which has also been recently updated with the combined HERA data. The b-CGC and the IP-Sat models have also been applied to proton-proton and proton-nucleus collisions and provide the basis for modeling initial conditions in heavy ion collisions. We show that most features of inclusive DIS and exclusive diffractive data, including the Q^2, W, |t| and x dependence are correctly reproduced in both models. Nevertheless, the b-CGC and the IP-Sat models give different predictions beyond the current HERA kinematics, namely for the structure functions at very low x and high virtualities Q^2, and for the exclusive diffractive vector meson and DVCS production at high t. We show that both models give approximately similar saturation scale Q_S<1 GeV for the proton in HERA kinematics, and also both models lead to the same conclusion that the typical impact-parameter probed in the total \gamma^{*}p cross-section is about b\approx 2\div 3 GeV^{-1}. We provide some predictions for future electron-proton colliders. This talk is mainly based on: A. H. Rezaeian and I. Schmidt, Phys. Rev. D88, 074016 (2013) [arXiv:1307.0825].

The measurement is performed for untagged photoproduction with Q$^{2}$ < 2 GeV$^{2}$ in photon virtuality and for deep-inelastic-scattering with 4 GeV$^{2}$ < Q$^{2}$ < 80 GeV$^{2}$. The results are compared to next-to-leading order QCD calculations based on diffractive parton distribution functions extracted from measurements of inclusive cross sections in diffractive deep-inelastic-scattering. Results are discussed with focus on the validity of the factorisation theorem for these processes.

        Exclusive dijet production in diffractive deep inelastic scattering at HERA 20m
        The exclusive production of dijets in diffractive deep inelastic lepton-proton scattering has been measured with the ZEUS detector at HERA using an integrated luminosity of 372 pb$^{-1}$ of $e^\pm p$ data. The measurement has been performed in the kinematic range $Q^2 > 25\,\mathrm{GeV}^2$, $90 < W < 250\,\mathrm{GeV}$ and $x_{\rm I\!P} < 0.01$, where $Q^2$ is the virtuality of exchanged photon, $W$ is the $\gamma^\star p$ centre-of-mass energy and $x_{\rm I\!P}$ is the fraction of the proton momentum taken by the diffractive exchange. Jets have been reconstructed in the photon-Pomeron ($\gamma^\star -{\rm I\!P}$ ) centre-of-mass system frame using the exclusive $k_T$ algorithm. The cross section for the exclusive production of dijets is given as a function of the angle between the plane defined by exchanged photon and dijet system and the plane defined by the incoming and scattered lepton momenta in the $\gamma^*-{\rm I\!P}$ rest frame. It is compared to theoretical predictions of models based on boson-gluon fusion and two-gluon exchange processes.

        Dijet production with large rapidity gap in deep-inelastic scattering at HERA 20m
        In this measurement, the cross section for dijet production in diffractive deep-inelastic scattering is presented. The diffractive events are selected by requiring the presence of a Large Rapidity Gap in the forward region of H1 detector. The data have been collected during the HERA-2 period and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 284 pb$^{-1}$. The data cover the range x_P <0.03 and 4 ≤ Q$^{2}$ ≤ 80 GeV$^{2}$ in photon virtuality. The phase space of the analysis is defined by two inclusive jets found by the k_T cluster algorithm in the hadronic centre-of-mass system. The leading and sub-leading jets are required to have E_T$^{*jet1}$ > 5.5 GeV and E_T$^{*jet2}$ > 4 GeV, respectively and to lie within LAr calorimeter acceptance, i.e. -1 < η$^{jet1,2}$ < 2. Differential cross sections are compared to QCD Next-to-leading calculations corrected to the level of stable hadrons.

        Exclusive Photoproduction of Rho Meson with Leading Neutron at HERA 30m
        The first measurement of exclusive photoproduction of rho meson associated with the leading neutron at HERA is presented. The data are taken with the H1 detector in the years 2006-2007 and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 1.16 pb-1. The rho mesons are reconstructed from decay pions in the central tracking chamber, while the leading neutrons, carrying a large fraction of the incoming proton momentum x_L>0.4, are detected in the Forward Neutron Calorimeter. The phase space of the measurement is restricted to by photon virtualities Q$^{2}$<2 GeV$^{2}$, total energies of the gamma-p system 20 < W_gp < 100 GeV and polar angles of the leading neutrons, theta_n < 0.75 mrad. The cross section of the reaction gamma+p -> rho+n+Y, where Y is a small mass system escaping undetected in the proton direction, is measured as a function of the neutron energy, the invariant mass of the pi+pi- system and the transverse momentum and the pseudorapidity of the rho meson. The data are interpreted in terms of a double peripheral process, involving a pion exchange at the proton vertex followed by elastic photoproducton of a rho meson on a virtual pion.

The search is performed using H1 data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 350 pb$^{-1}$. Several observables of the hadronic final state of the events are exploited to identify a potentially instanton-enriched domain. Two Monte Carlo models, RAPGAP and ARIADNE, are used to estimate the background from the standard DIS processes, and the instanton-induced scattering processes are modeled by the program QCDINS. In order to extract the expected signal a multivariate data analysis technique is used.

At 8 TeV the measurement reaches into the Coulomb-Nuclear Interference region, providing insight into the nuclear scattering phase and its functional dependence on t. Via the optical theorem, the measurement of low-|t| elastic scattering has enabled the determination of the total p-p cross-section with different, systematically complementary approaches.

First studies of central diffraction and, in particular, diffractive dijet production in special runs in 2012 have provided the proof of concept, but demonstrate that even at moderate luminosities a key issue to be overcome in physics with leading protons is the pileup of several events per bunch crossing.

        In proton-proton collisions at the LHC, pairs of top and anti-top quarks are expected to be mostly produced through gluon fusion. Making use of the large number of top quark pairs collected, we present measurements of the spin correlation between top and anti-top quarks using several variables and discuss their sensitivity to new physics. In addition, we present measurements of the top quark polarisation predicted in models with CP-conserving and CP-violating processes.

        Associated production of heavy flavour final state and a vector boson and search for H->bb 23m
        The mechanism of production of heavy-flavoured mesons, containing b or c quarks, in association with vector bosons, W or Z, in the Standard Model is only partially understood. The study of events with one or two well-identified and isolated leptons accompanied by b-jets or b-mesons is therefore crucial to refine the theoretical calculations in perturbative QCD, as well as validate associated Monte Carlo techniques. The deep understanding of these processes is furthermore required by Higgs physics studies and Beyond the Standard Model searches. Using the LHC proton-proton collision data collected in 2010 and 2011 at a centre of mass energy of 7 TeV by the CMS detector, Zb(b) cross sections and angular correlations are presented, as well as Wbb production cross-section. Finally, the study of the associated production of a c-quark and a W boson with respect to the W charge and W plus light jets are also presented, allowing to probe and constrain the strange quark content of the proton.

        Measurements of the top quark mass are presented, obtained from CMS data collected in proton proton collisions at the LHC at centre-of-mass energies of 7 TeV and 8 TeV. The mass of the top quark is measured using several methods and channels, including the reconstructed invariant mass distribution of the top quark, an analysis of endpoint spectra as well as measurements from shapes of top quark decay distributions. The dependence of the mass measurement on the kinematic phase space is investigated. The results of the various channels are combined and compared to the world average. The top mass and also alpha_s are extracted from the top pair cross section measured at CMS.

        Top quarks as a probe for heavy new physics 28m
        The heaviest fermion is expected to couple strongly to new physics and appears therefore a natural probe in many BSM scenario. Moreover, top physics has now enter in a precision era thanks to the huge amount of top quarks produced at hadron colliders, advanced experimental methods and accurate theoretical predictions. In this talk, we will used effective field theory to search for heavy new physics in a model independent way. This method can also be used to quantify the room left for new physics if no deviation from the SM is found.

        Production of top pair events with additional radiation using the ATLAS detector at the LHC. 20m
        The large centre-of-mass energy available at the proton-proton collider LHC allows for the copious production of top quark pairs in association with other final state particles at high transverse momentum. The ATLAS experiment has measured several final state observables that are sensitive to additional parton radiation in top anti-top quark final states. Examples are the multiplicity of jets for various transverse momentum thresholds or the probability to emit jets above a given threshold in a fixed rapidity region. These measurements are compared to modern Monte Carlo generators based on NLO QCD matrix element or LO multi-leg matrix elements. The data are able to constrain the uncertainty on the modelling of the top pair production mechanism. We also discuss top production in association with photons and Z bosons. In addition, we the discuss production of top quark pairs in association with heavy quarks (beauty and charm).

        Double charmed meson production at the LHC: Single- versus double-parton scattering mechanism 20m
        We compare results of exact calculations of single-parton scattering (SPS) and double-parton scattering (DPS) for production of $c \bar c c \bar c$ and for $D-D$ meson correlations [1]. Each step of DPS is calculated within $k_t$-factorization approach, i.e. effectively including next-to-leading order corrections. The SPS calculations are performed in collinear approximation with exact matrix element for $g g \to c \bar c c \bar c$ subprocess. The new results are compared with results of previous calculation with approximate matrix elements in high-energy approximation. The cross section for the exact calculation is bigger only at small invariant masses and small rapidity difference between two $c$ quarks (or two $\bar c$ antiquarks). We compare correlations in rapidities of two $c$ (or two $\bar c$) for DPS and SPS contributions. Finally we compare our predictions for $DD$ meson pairs with recent results of the LHCb collaboration for invariant mass, rapidity distance between mesons and dimeson invariant mass. The predicted shapes are similar to the measured ones, however, some strength seems to be lacking. Possible missing contribution within the framework of DPS mechanism is suggested. Our new calulations clearly confirm the dominance of DPS in the production of events with double charm. [1] A. van Hameren, R. Maciula and A. Szczurek, arXiv:1402.6972 [hep-ph].

A measurement of jet shapes in t-tbar final states using data recorded by the ATLAS detector is presented. Samples of events with top-quark pairs are selected in both the semileptonic and dileptonic decay modes and the differential and integrated shapes of the b-quark jets resulting from the top-quark decays are compared with those of the light-quark jets from the hadronic W-boson decays W -> q¯q' in the semileptonic channel.

The beam energy has been increased to 200 GeV compared to 160 GeV in 2007 and thus, higher values of $Q^2$ and lower values of $x$ are reached. We will present our results on the longitudinal double spin asymmetry $A_1^p$ and the spin-dependent structure function $g_1^p$. These results are used in a NLO QCD fit to the world data to obtain the polarised parton distributions and also to update our results on the Bjorken sum rule, connecting the integral of the non-singlet structure function with the ratio of the weak coupling constants.

By directly fitting polarization asymmetries we eliminate biases introduced by using polarized structure function data extracted under nonuniform assumptions for the unpolarized structure functions. For analysis of the large-x data we implement nuclear smearing corrections for Deuteron and 3He nuclei, and systematically include target mass and higher twist corrections to the g1 and g2 structure functions at low Q2. We also explore the effects of Q2 and W2 cuts in the data sets, and the potential impact of future data on the behavior of the spin-dependent parton distributions.

        COMPASS results on the transverse spin asymmetry in identified dihadron production in SIDIS 30m
        The parton distribution function $h_{1}^{q}(x)$ of a transversely polarized quark $q$ inside a transversely polarized nucleon, is chiral-odd and therefore not accessible in inclusive deep-inelastic scattering. It can however be observed in semi-inclusive deep-inelastic scattering (SIDIS) in combination with another chiral-odd function, for instance the dihadron interference fragmentation function (DiFF) $H_{1}^{\triangleleft q}$. The $160\,\mbox{GeV}/c$ polarized muon beam of CERN's M2 beamline allows COMPASS to investigate transverse spin effects using polarized solid-state targets. In this contribution an overview of COMPASS results for the azimuthal asymmetry in identified dihadron production is given. Pions and kaons were identified by a RICH detector. Recently, the full set of this asymmetry from the COMPASS data on the deuteron and the proton target became available. All data, including early data sets, were analyzed using the same methods and requirements. The results are compared to model predictions and HERMES data. Furthermore an extraction of the transversity distribution function $h_{1}(x)$ for $u$ and $d$ quarks was carried out with this full data set.

        HERMES results on transverse target single-spin asymmetries in inclusive electroproduction of charged pions and kaons 25m
        Single-spin asymmetries were investigated in inclusive electroproduction of charged pions and kaons from transversely polarized protons at the HERMES experiment. The asymmetries were studied as a function of the azimuthal angle $\psi$ about the beam direction between the target-spin direction and the hadron production plane, the transverse hadron momentum $p_T$ relative to the direction of the incident beam, and the Feynman variable $x_F$. The $\sin\psi$ amplitudes are positive for $\pi^{+}$ and $K^{+}$, slightly negative for $\pi^{-}$ and consistent with zero for $K^{-}$, with particular $p_{T}$ but weak $x_{F}$ dependences. Especially large asymmetries are observed for two small subsamples of events, where also the scattered electron was recorded by the spectrometer.

        Transverse-spin gluon distribution function 25m
        We define the novel polarized PDF, the transverse-spin gluon distribution function $G_T(x)$, as the nucleon matrix element of the gauge-invariant bilocal light-cone operator in QCD, and discuss their properties. $G_T(x)$ is the gluonic analogue of the transverse-spin quark distribution function $g_T(x)$ that contributes to the transverse-spin structure function $g_2(x, Q^2)$ in the DIS of a longitudinally-polarized lepton off a transversely-polarized nucleon target. These distributions, $g_T(x)$ and $G_T(x)$, are relevant to the “angular momentum sum rule” for the transversely-polarized nucleon, because the integral of $g_T(x)$ ($G_T(x)$) over $x$ gives the quark-spin (gluon-spin) contribution arising in the partonic decomposition of the transverse nucleon spin. We show that the transverse-spin gluon distribution function $G_T(x)$ can be expressed as the sum of the two types of gluonic light-cone correlators: one is the correlator of the chromoelectric fields and the other is the correlator of the chromomagnetic fields; both of these correlators are of twist-three and correspond to the helicity flip by one unit (i.e., correlator between the chromoelectric (chromomagnetic) field carrying the helicity zero and the chromoelectric (chromomagnetic) field carrying the helicity +1 or -1), similarly as the helicity-flip nature of the transverse-spin quark distribution $g_T(x)$. We note that the former (chromoelectric) correlator coincides with the twist-three gluon distribution $G_3(x)$ introduced by X. Ji in Phys. Lett. B289 (1992) 137, but the relevance of the latter (chromomagnetic) correlator has not been noticed so far. The classification of the collinear PDFs is now completed up to twist-three with this chromomagnetic correlator. We derive the moment sum rules for $G_T(x)$ and the corresponding operator product expansion, revealing that $G_T(x)$ receives the three-gluon correlation effects. This work is based on our paper JHEP1302 (2013) 003 and the recent new results.

        Orbital angular momentum in the nucleon 25m
        In the last decade, it has been realized that the orbital angular momentum of partons inside the nucleon plays a major role. It contributes significantly to nucleon properties and is at the origin of many asymmetries observed in spin physics. It is therefore of paramount importance to determine this quantity if we want to understand the nucleon internal structure and experimental observables. This triggered numerous discussions and controversies about the proper definition of orbital angular momentum in a relativistic gauge theory and its extraction from experimental data. We summarize the present situation and discuss recent developments in this field.

        Exclusive vector meson production at high energies and gluon saturation 20m
        We investigate exclusive diffractive photoproduction of vector mesons (J/ψ, ϕ and ρ) off protons in high-energy collisions. We confront saturation-based results for diffractive J/ψ photoproduction with all available data including recent ones from HERA and LHCb. We show that while the total J/ψ cross-section is affected by uncertainties related to the charm mass, the t-distribution of differential cross-section offers a unique opportunity to unambiguously discriminate among saturation and non-saturation models. This is due to emergence of a pronounced dip (or multiple dips) in the t-distribution of diffractive photoproduction of vector mesons at relatively large |t| that can be traced back to the unitarity features of colour dipole amplitude in the saturation regime. We show that in saturation models the dip in the t-distribution recedes towards lower |t| with decreasing mass of the vector meson, increasing energy or decreasing Bjorken-x, and decreasing virtuality Q. We provide predictions for exclusive photoproduction of various vector mesons at the LHC and at future electron-proton colliders. This talk is mainly based on: arXiv:1402.4831.

        Precision proton-proton and proton-nucleus collision studies at A Fixed-Target ExpeRiment at the LHC (AFTER@LHC) 20m
        We discuss the physics opportunities [1] which are offered by a next generation and multi-purpose fixed-target experiment exploiting the LHC beams. The multi-TeV LHC proton beam grants the most energetic fixed-target experiment ever performed, to study pp, pd and pA collisions at sqrt(s_NN) ~ 115 GeV. AFTER@LHC -- for A Fixed-Target ExperRiment -- gives access to new domains of particle and nuclear physics complementing that of collider experiments, in particular RHIC and the projects of electron-ion colliders. With a beam extracted by a bent crystal, the typical instantaneous luminosity achievable with AFTER@LHC in pp and pA mode [1] surpasses that of RHIC by more than 3 orders of magnitude and is comparable to that of the LHC collider mode, without pile-up thanks to the slow extraction mode. Another possibility is offered by the LCHb SMOG system, with a priori a limited luminosity, though. This provides a quarkonium, prompt photon and heavy-flavour observatory [1,2] in pp and pA collisions where, by instrumenting the target-rapidity region, gluon and heavy-quark distributions of the proton, the neutron and the nuclei can be accessed at large x and even at x larger than unity in the nuclear case. The nuclear target-species versatility provides a unique opportunity to study the nuclear matter versus the hot and dense matter formed in heavy-ion collisions. Modern detection technology should allow for the study of quarkonium excited states, in particular the chi(c) and chi(b) resonances thanks to the boost of the fixed-target mode. This would allow one to study gluon TMDs as suggested for instance in [3]. The fixed-target mode also has the advantage to allow for spin measurements with polarized targets, for instance single-spin asymmetries for Drell-Yan pair production [4]. We will review all these aspects and show first simulation results. References [1] S. J. Brodsky, F. Fleuret, C. Hadjidakis and J. P. Lansberg, Phys. Rept. 108 522 (2013) 239. [2] J. P. Lansberg, S.

        The Tile Calorimeter (TileCal) is the hadronic calorimeter covering the central region of the ATLAS experiment at LHC. The TileCal readout consists of about 10000 channels. Its main upgrade will occur for the High Luminosity LHC phase (phase 2) where the peak luminosity will increase 5-fold compared to the design luminosity (10exp34 cm−2s−1) but with maintained energy (i.e. 7+7 TeV). An additional increase of the average luminosity with a factor of 2 can be achieved by luminosity leveling. This upgrade will probably happen around 2023. The upgrade aims at replacing the majority of the on- and off-detector electronics so that all calorimeter signals are directly digitized and sent to the off-detector electronics in the counting room. To achieve the required reliability, redundancy has been introduced at different levels. The smallest independent on-detector electronics module has been reduced from 45 channels to 6, greatly reducing the consequences of a failure in the on-detector electronics. The size of the smallest mechanical module has been reduced by a factor 4 to facilitate maintenance. This will mostly be accomplished by module replacement to reduce radiation exposure to maintenance personnel, which will be an increasingly important issue. Three different options are presently being investigated for the front-end electronic upgrade. Which one to use will be decided after extensive test beam studies. 10 Gbps optical links are used to read out all digitized data to the counting room while 5 Gbps down-links are used for synchronization, configuration and detector control. For the off-detector electronics a pre-processor is being developed, which takes care of the initial trigger processing while temporarily storing the main data flow in pipeline and de-randomizer memories. One demonstrator prototype module with the new calorimeter module electronics, but still compatible with the present system, is planned to be inserted in ATLAS this year i.e. mid 2014 (at the end of the phase 0 upgrade).

        ATLAS Upgrades Towards the High Luminosity LHC: extending the discovery potential 20m
        After successful LHC operation at the center-of-mass energy of 7 and 8 TeV in 2011 and 2012, plans are actively advancing for a series of upgrades, culminating roughly 10 years from now in the high luminosity LHC (HL-LHC) project, delivering of order five times the LHC nominal instantaneous luminosity along with luminosity levelling. The final goal is to extend the data set from about few hundred fb-1 expected for LHC running to 3000 fb-1 by around 2030. Current planning in ATLAS also has significant upgrades to the detector during the consolidation of the LHC to reach full LHC energy and further upgrades to accommodate running already beyond nominal luminosity this decade. The challenge of coping with HL-LHC instantaneous and integrated luminosity, along with the associated radiation levels, requires further major changes to the ATLAS detector. The designs are developing rapidly for an all-new inner-tracker, significant upgrades in the calorimeter and muon systems, as well as improved triggers and data acquisition. This presentation summarises the various improvements to the ATLAS detector required to cope with the anticipated evolution of the LHC instantaneous luminosity during this decade and the next.

        Prospects for constrained supersymmetry at $\sqrt{s}=33$ TeV and $\sqrt{s}=100$ TeV proton-proton super-colliders 20m
        Discussions are underway for a high-energy proton-proton collider. Two preliminary ideas are the $\sqrt{s}=33$ TeV HE-LHC and the $\sqrt{s}=100$ TeV VLHC. With Bayesian statistics, we calculate the probabilities that the LHC, HE-LHC and VLHC discover SUSY in the future, assuming that nature is described by the CMSSM and given the experimental data from the LHC, LUX and Planck. We find that the LHC with $300$/fb at $\sqrt{s}=14$ TeV has a $15$-$75\%$ probability of discovering SUSY. Should that run fail to discover SUSY, the probability of discovering SUSY with $3000$/fb is merely $1$-$10\%$. Were SUSY to remain undetected at the LHC, the HE-LHC would have a $35$-$85\%$ probability of discovering SUSY with $3000$/fb. The VLHC, on the other hand, ought to be definitive; the probability of it discovering SUSY, assuming that the CMSSM is the correct model, is $100\%$.

        HERAFitter - an open source QCD Fit platform 25m
        The proton parton distribution functions (PDFs) are essential for precision physics at the LHC and other hadron colliders. Their current level of accuracy dominates the theory uncertainties in Higgs production and it affects substantially theory predictions for Beyond Standard Model high mass production. We would like to present the first stable release of the HERAFitter package - an open source project which provides a framework for QCD analyses in the context of multi-process and multi-experiment settings, bridging the state-of-the-art theory developments with an appropriate treatment of the precise experimental measurements. The HERAFitter program allows determination of the PDFs from the various measurements of the cross sections at $ep$, $p\bar{p}$ or $pp$ colliders. It includes various options for theoretical models and different choices to account for the experimental uncertainties. Therefore, this project represents not only an ideal environment for benchmarking studies, but also a support for the QCD interpretation of data analyses within the LHC experiments, as already demonstrated by several publicly available LHC results using the HERAFitter framework.

We perform fits to these data using transverse momentum dependent QCD factorization and CCFM evolution. The results of the fits to precision measurements are used to make a determination of the nonperturbative transverse momentum dependent gluon density function, including experimental and theoretical uncertainties.

        We investigate the spin flip Generalized Parton Distribution $E(x,0,t)$ in impact parameter space using the explicit light front wave functions (LFWFs) for the two-particle Fock state of the electron in QED. The Fourier transform (FT) of the GPDs by taking the longitudinal momentum transfer as zero ($\zeta=0$) gives the distribution of quarks in the transverse plane. We study the relationship of $E(x,0,t)$ with the distortion of unpolarized quark distribution in the transverse plane when the target nucleon is transversely polarized. We also determine the sign of distortion directly by taking FT of the transverse position coordinate.

        TMD PDFs in the Laguerre polynomial basis 25m
        We suggest a novel way of matching the non-perturbative part of TMD with the perturbative part aimed to increase the amount of perturbative information in the TMD PDF expression. For that we perform the OPE for the TMD PDF operator in the Laguerre polynomial basis. The choice of basis is dictated by the phenomenological observation that TMDs in the region of middle-$b_T$ has Gaussian behavior. The obtained perturbative expression for the TMD PDF is valid in the wide region of $b_T$ (we estimate this region as $b_T< 2-3$ GeV$^{-1}$ depending on $x$).

The analysis includes target mass and higher twist corrections needed for the description of deep inelastic scattering data at large x and low Q^2, nuclear corrections for deuterium targets, and a functional form that accommodates a data-driven d/u ratio at the highest x values. The PDF sets correspond to three different models for the nuclear effects, and provide a more realistic uncertainty range for the d quark PDF compared with previous fits. Applications, for instance to weak boson production at colliders, have been investigated. Comparisons to Drell-Yan data will also be discussed.

        Applications of the tensor pomeron model to exclusive central diffractive meson production 20m
        We discuss exclusive central diffractive production of scalar ($f_{0}(980)$, $f_{0}(1370)$, $f_{0}(1500)$), pseudoscalar ($\eta$, $\eta'(958)$), and vector ($\rho^{0}$) mesons in proton-proton collisions. The amplitudes are formulated in terms of effective vertices required to respect standard rules of Quantum Field Theory and propagators for the exchanged pomeron and reggeons [1]. Different pomeron-pomeron-meson tensorial (vectorial) coupling structures are possible in general. In most cases two lowest orbital angular momentum - spin couplings are necessary to describe experimental differential distributions [2]. We discuss differences between results of the "tensorial pomeron" and "vectorial pomeron" models. For $f_{0}(980)$ and $\eta$ production reggeon-pomeron, pomeron-reggeon, and reggeon-reggeon exchanges are included in addition, which seems to be necessary at relatively low energies. The theoretical results are compared with the WA102 experimental data, in order to determine the model parameters. Correlations in azimuthal angle between outgoing protons, distributions in rapidities and transverse momenta of outgoing protons and mesons in a special "glueball filter variable", as well as some two-dimensional distributions are presented. For $\rho^{0}$ production photon-pomeron, pomeron-photon exchanges are considered. The coupling parameters of tensor pomeron and/or reggeon are fixed from the H1 and ZEUS experimental data of the $\gamma p \to \rho^{0} p$ reaction. We present first predictions of this mechanism for $pp \to pp \pi^{+} \pi^{-}$ reaction being studied at COMPASS, RHIC, Tevatron, and LHC [3]. Wy analyse influence of the experimental cuts on integrated cross section and various differential distributions for pions. We compare the $\rho^{0}$ contribution with double pomeron two-pion continuum [4]. We show that high-energy central production, in particular of pseudoscalar mesons, could provide crucial information on the spin structure of the soft pomeron. This is particularly clear for the coupling of the pomeron to particles carrying non-zeroth spin as $\rho^{0}$ meson for example. [1] C. Ewerz, M. Maniatis, and O.

        Production of dijets with large rapidity separation: Mueller-Navalet mechanism versus double-parton scattering 20m
        We discuss production of four-jet final state in the $pp \rightarrow j j j j X$ reaction at the LHC through the mechanism of double-parton scattering (DPS) [1]. Each step of the DPS is calculated within the so-called factorized Ansatz in the LO collinear approximation. The LO pQCD calculations are shown to give a reasonably good descritption of the recent CMS and ATLAS data on inclusive jet production. Relative contribution of DPS is growing at large rapidity distance between jets. This is consistent with our experience from previous studies of double-parton scattering effects in the case of open and hidden charm production. The calculated differential cross sections as a function of rapidity distance between the most distant jets are compared with recent results of LL and NLL BFKL calculations for Mueller-Navalet (MN) jet production at $\sqrt{s} = 7$ TeV. The DPS contribution to the production of large rapidity distant jets is carefully studied also at the nominal LHC energy and in different jets transverse momenta range. The differential cross section as a function of dijet transverse momenta as well as two-dimmensional ($p^{min}_{T}\times p^{max}_{T}$)-plane correlations for the DPS mechanism are also presented. Some ideas how the DPS effects could be studied in the case of double dijet production are suggested. [1] R. Maciula and A. Szczurek, a paper in preparation.

We analyze this process within a complete next-to-leading logarithm framework, supplemented by the use of the Brodsky-Lepage-Mackenzie procedure extended to the perturbative Regge dynamics, to find the optimal renormalization scale. This leads to a very good description of the recent CMS data at LHC for the azimuthal correlations of the jets.

        Beyond-DGLAP searches with Mueller-Navelet jets, and measurements of low-pT and forward jets at CMS 20m
        We present searches for beyond-DGLAP resummation effects in production of dijets with large rapidity separation in pp collisions at sqrt{s}=7TeV. Ratios of inclusive over exclusive dijet production cross sections and dijet azimuthal decorrelations are presented as a function of rapidity separation between jets. Measurements are compared to predictions of conventional LO+PS MC generators as well as MC generators incorporating elements of the BFKL approach and analytic NLL BFKL calculations. The azimuthal correlation between forward and central jets is measured in proton–proton collisions at the LHC, at the centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV. The forward jet is reconstructed in the hadronic forward (HF) calorimeter in the pseudorapidity region 3.2 < |η| < 4.7, while the central jet is limited to |η| < 2.8. At least one central jet and one forward jet are required to have transverse momentum of pT > 35 GeV. The azimuthal angle between the jets is measured for different separations in pseudorapidity, with the largest separation being ∆η = 7.5 units. The analysis is carried out for inclusive dijet events and for two subsamples, one where an additional jet is required between the forward and the central jet, and one where the additional jet is vetoed. Comparisons between data and several different Monte Carlo models and tunes show a large sensitivity to the modeling of QCD radiation. Measurements of the differential cross sections for the production of exactly four jets in proton-proton collisions are presented as a function of the transverse momentum pt and pseudorapidity eta, together with the correlations in azimuthal angle and the \pt balance among the jets. The data sample was collected in 2010 at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV with the CMS detector at the LHC, with an integrated luminosity of 36pb-1. The cross section for exactly 4 jets, with 2 hard jets of pt > 50 GeV each, together with 2 jets of pt > 20 GeV each, within |eta|< 4.7 is measured to be sigma = 330 +- 5 (stat) +- 45 (syst) nb. It is found that the addition of parton showers to fixed-order matrix element calculations describe the measured differential cross sections in only some regions of phase space and that including a contribution from double parton scattering in the models brings the predictions closer to the data.

These can give rise to direct pair production rates at the LHC that can be observed in the data sample recorded by the ATLAS detector. The talk presents results from searches for gaugino and slepton pair production in final states with leptons.

        Squark pair production and decay at NLO matched with parton showers 20m
        The pair production of squarks is one of the main search channels for supersymmetry at the LHC. For the interpretation of experimental data precise theoretical predictions are crucial. The work presented in the talk contributes to this effort by providing a fully differential calculation of the NLO SUSY-QCD corrections to the on-shell production of squark pairs supplemented by the decay of the squarks to the lightest neutralino and a quark in the MSSM. However, for precise simulations at the level of the actually measured experimental observables a combination of these fixed-order NLO calculations and parton showers is mandatory. To this end, the process was implemented in the Powheg-Box framework and interfaced with different parton shower programs. We study the impact of the NLO corrections on the differential scale dependence and K-factors and investigate the parton shower effects.

        Searches for supersymmetry in resonance production, R-parity violating signatures and events with long-lived particles at LHC 30m
        An extended QCD sector beyond the minimal supersymmetric standard model or the admission of R-parity violation introduces new signatures to the search for supersymmetry at the LHC. Strongly interacting resonances may decay to jets, sleptons may decay via lepton-flavour violating processes and lightest supersymmetric particles may decay into many leptons with or without missing transverse momentum. Several supersymmetric models also predict massive long-lived supersymmetric particles. Such particles may be detected through abnormal specific energy loss, appearing or disappearing tracks, displaced vertices, long time-of-flight or late calorimetric energy deposits. The talk presents recent results from searches supersymmetry in resonance production, R-parity violating signatures and events with long-lived particles with ATLAS and CMS detectors.

        Higgs coupling measurements and impact on the MSSM 20m
        The Run I of the LHC has not revealed any sign of new physics beyond the standard model (BSM). However, the discovery of a Higgs boson opens up new possibilities for probing various BSM scenarios with enlarged Higgs sectors and/or new particles affecting the loop-induced processes or opening new decay modes. I will present how we derive constraints on new physics from the Higgs searches performed by the ATLAS and CMS collaborations, taking (partly) into account the correlations between the experimental categories. This is used to determine the couplings of the Higgs boson, considering possible invisible/unseen decays. I will then show the impact of the Higgs measurements on the phenomenological MSSM and on the MSSM with a light neutralino dark matter. Finally, I will present a new, public tool for fitting the Higgs likelihood and deriving constraints on a broad class of new physics models. The experimental results are stored in a flexible XML database, and the model input can be specified in terms of reduced couplings, or cross sections and branching fractions, or signal strengths directly in a general and user-friendly way.

        Heavy-flavour production in pp, p-Pb and Pb-Pb collisions with ALICE at the LHC 25m
        Heavy-flavour hadrons containing charm and beauty quarks are unique probes of the properties of the hot and dense QCD medium produced in heavy-ion collisions. Due to their large masses, heavy quarks are produced at the initial stage of the collision, almost exclusively via hard partonic scattering processes. Therefore, they are expected to experience the full collision history propagating through and interacting with the QCD medium. Such interaction modifies the phase-space distribution of heavy quarks in Pb-Pb collisions with respect to pp collisions. The measurement of this modification, referred as nuclear modification factor, is sensitive to the transport coefficients of the produced medium. A qualitative and quantitative understanding of the measurement of the nuclear modification factor requires reference measurements in pp and p-Pb collisions. Besides being the reference for Pb-Pb studies, pp heavy-flavour measurements constitute a powerful QCD test tool. The study of their production as a function of multiplicity of charged particles produced in the collision can give insights into multi-parton interaction phenomena. Finally the p-Pb reference measurement is important to disentangle hot medium effects from initial-state effects due to cold nuclear matter. The ALICE collaboration has measured the production of open heavy-flavour hadrons via their hadronic and semi-leptonic decays at mid-rapidity and in the semi-muonic decay channel at forward rapidity in pp, p-Pb and Pb-Pb collisions at 7, 5.02 and 2.76 TeV respectively. In this talk the latest experimental results are presented.

        Measurement of D* photoproduction at three different centre-of-mass energies at HERA 25m
        The cross sections for the photoproduction of $D^\star$ mesons have been measured with the ZEUS detector at HERA at three different $ep$ centre-of-mass energies, $\sqrt{s}$, of 318, 251 and 225\,GeV. For each data set, $D^\star$ mesons were required to have a transverse momentum, $p_T^{D^\star}$, and pseudorapidity, $\eta^{D^\star}$, in the ranges, $1.9 < p_T^{D^\star} < 20$\,GeV and $|\eta^{D^\star}|<1.6$, respectively. The events were required to have a virtuality of the incoming photon, $Q^2$, of less than 1 GeV$^2$ and three different photon-proton centre-of-mass energies, corresponding to the same value of $y$, the fraction of the incoming electron momentum carried by the photon. The dependence on $\sqrt{s}$ was studied by normalising to the high-statistics measurement at $\sqrt{s} =318$ GeV. This led to the cancellation of a number of systematic effects both in data and in theory. Predictions from next-to-leading-order QCD describe well the energy dependence in data.

        Combination of D* Differential Cross-Section Measurements in Deep Inelastic ep Scattering at HERA 25m
        H1 and ZEUS have recently published differential cross sections for $D^\star$ production from their respective final data sets, for photon virtualities $Q^2 > 5$ GeV$^2$. These cross sections are combined at the visible cross section level, taking into account all relevant correlations. This significantly reduces the experimental uncertainties, while theory uncertainties from the combination procedure remain almost negligible. To extend the kinematic range down to $Q^2 > 1.5$ GeV$^2$, double differential cross sections are also combined with a subset of earlier $D^\star$ data. NLO QCD predictions are compared to the results.

        Diffractive production of open charm and bottom at the LHC 25m
        We discuss diffractive production of open charm and bottom mesons at the LHC [1]. The differential cross sections for single- and central-diffractive mechanisms for $c\bar c$ and $b\bar b$ pairs are calculated in the framework of the Ingelman-Schlein model corrected for absorption effects to include Regge factorization breaking observed at the Tevatron. In this approach one assumes that the pomeron has a well defined partonic structure, and that the hard process takes place in a pomeron-proton or proton-pomeron (single diffraction) or pomeron- pomeron (central diffraction) processes. Here, only the LO gluon-gluon fusion partonic subprocess is taken into consideration, which is calculated within simple collinear approximation. Both pomeron flux factors as well as parton distributions in the pomeron are taken from the H1 Collaboration analysis of diffractive structure function and diffractive dijets at HERA. The sub-leading corrections from reggeon type exchanges are explicitly calculated and also taken into consideration. Several quarks-level differential distributions are shown. The results are compared to the results of gluon disociation mechanism in the $k_t$-factorization approach [2] The hadronization of charm and bottom quarks is taken into account by means of fragmentation function technique. Predictions for single- and central-diffractive production in the case of inclusive $D$ and $B$ mesons, as well as $D\bar D$ correlations are presented, including detector acceptance of the ATLAS, CMS and LHCb Collaborations. The experimental aspects of possible standard and dedicated measurements are carefully discussed. [1] M. Luszczak, R. Maciula and A. Szczurek, a paper in preparation. [2] M. Luszczak, W.

        Quarkonium production in pp, p-Pb and Pb-Pb collisions with the ALICE experiment at the LHC 25m
        ALICE is the LHC experiment dedicated to the study of heavy ion collisions where extreme thermodynamical conditions are supposed to lead to the creation of a deconfined QCD state of matter called Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP). Amongst the prominent probes of the QGP, heavy quarks are of special interest since they are produced in the initial parton-parton interactions of A-A collisions and interact with the medium throughout its evolution. In particular, the study of quarkonium (bound states of heavy quark anti- quark pairs) production is expected to provide essential information on QGP properties. Dissociation of quarkonia should occur in the medium and the dissociation rate for a given quarkonium state should depend on the medium temperature. A sequential suppression of the measured quarkonium yield should then be observed. However, several additional effects are to be taken into account in the interpretation of the results. Quarkonia can be regenerated in the medium and this effect should be much larger for charmonia (bound states of ccbar pairs) than for bottomonia (bound states of bbar pairs). In addition, Cold Nuclear Matter (CNM) effects (such as shadowing, anti-shadowing and break up or energy loss) must also be separated from effects due to the QGP formation. The CNM effects can be quantified by studying the quarkonium production in p-A collisions where the QGP is not expected to be created. Finally, quarkonium yield measurements in pp collisions provide stringent tests to hadroproduction models and benchmarks for p-A and A-A collision studies. In ALICE, the measurement of quarkonia can be performed with the forward spectrometer (−4 ≤ η ≤ −2.5) and the central barrel (−0.9 ≤ η ≤ 0.9) via the di-muonic and the di-electronic decay channel, respectively. Recent results on quarkonium production in pp, p-Pb and Pb-Pb collisions at the TeV scale will be reported.

The same data are used differentially as a function of the photon virtuality $Q^2$ to evaluate the charm quark running mass at different physical scales to one-loop order. The scale dependence of the mass is found to be consistent with QCD expectations, and a graphical represention of the charm mass running, similar to the representation of the beauty mass running from LEP data, is obtained for the first time.

        Nuclear matter effects on J/$\psi$ production in Cu+Au and $U$+$U$ collisions in PHENIX 25m
        The Phenix experiment at RHIC has produced high quality J/$\psi$ measurements in heavy ion interactions for various energies and collision systems. These measurements allow us to study the mechanisms which may modify the charmonium production in the nucleus. During 2012 run, the flexibility of the RHIC to provide collisions with different nuclei have led to the first experimental study of two new collision systems with unique initial collision geometries. The initial asymmetry of the Cu+Au system leads to differences in the J/$\psi$ suppression along the beam axis. The Phenix detector, with its extensive kinematic coverage, is well suited to measure the J/$\psi$ production in both forward and backward rapidities, −2.2$<$y$<$−1.2 and 1.2$<$y$<$2.2. Such studies, along with a comparison to the $d$+Au and Au+Au systems, provide insight into the interplay of cold and hot nuclear matter on the J/$\psi$ modification, and whether such effects could be factorized. The second system, $U$+$U$, extends further the maximum energy density reached in heavy ion collisions at RHIC and presents the possibility to study how this increase may alter the particle production. In this talk I will present results from Cu+Au and $U$+$U$ collision systems, focusing on the latest J/$\psi$ measurements from Phenix.

        Measurement of the Transverse Single-Spin Asymmetries for $\pi^{0}$ and Jet-like Events at Forward Rapidities at STAR in $p+p$ Collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 500 GeV 30m
        Large transverse single-spin asymmetries ($A_N$) have been observed for forward inclusive hadron production in $p+p$ collisions at various experiments. In the collinear perturbative scattering picture, twist-3 multi-parton correlations can give rise to such an asymmetry. A transversely polarized quark can also give rise to a spin-dependent distribution of its hadron fragments via the higher twist equivalents of the Collins fragmentation function. The observed $A_N$ may involve contributions from both processes. These can be disentangled by studying asymmetries for jets, direct photons and jet-fragments. The STAR Forward Meson Spectrometer (FMS), a Pb-glass electromagnetic calorimeter covering the pseudo-rapidity ($\eta$) range 2.6-4.2 and full azimuth, can detect photons, neutral pions and eta mesons. We are measuring $A_N$ for $\pi^{0}$ and jet-like events reconstructed from photons in the FMS in $p+p$ collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 500 GeV that were recorded during the 2011 RHIC run. We study $A_N$ as a function of the number of observed photons in FMS, thereby exploring asymmetries for a range of event classes. We further study $A_N$ for forward jets and its dependency with forward-midrapidity jet correlation. The current status of the analysis will be discussed.

        Di-hadron production at Jefferson Laboratory 20m
        Semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering (SIDIS) has been used extensively in recent years as an important testing ground for QCD. Studies so far have concentrated on better determination of parton distribution functions, distinguishing between the quark and antiquark contributions, and understanding the fragmentation of quarks into hadrons. Pair of hadrons (di-hadron) SIDIS provides information on the nucleon structure and hadronization dynamics that complements single-hadron SIDIS. The study of di-hadrons allow us to study higher twist distribution functions and Dihadron Fragmentation Functions (DiFF). Together with the twist-2 PDFs ($f_1$ , $g_1$ , $h_1$), the Higher Twist (HT) $e$ and $h_L$ functions are very interesting because they offer insights into the physics of the largely unexplored quark-gluon correlations which provide direct and unique insights into the dynamics inside hadrons . The CLAS spectrometer, installed in Hall-B at Jefferson Lab, has collected data using the CEBAF 6 GeV longitudinally polarized electron beam on longitudinally polarized solid NH3 targets. Preliminary results on beam-, target- and double-spin asymmetries will be presented.

Precise knowledge of these functions is a key ingredient in accessing quantities such as the nucleon spin structure in semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering and proton-proton collisions. However, fragmentation functions can currently not be determined from Quantum Chromodynamics first principles and have to be extracted from experimental data. The Belle experiment at KEK, Japan, provides a large data sample for high precision measurements of unpolarized and polarized fragmentation functions.

        The analysis of experimental data on unpolarized Semi-Inclusive Deep-Inelastic Scattering (SIDIS) allows the extraction of information on the unpolarized transverse-momentum-dependent distribution functions (TMD PDFs) and fragmentation functions (TMD FFs). For the first time we investigate the flavor dependence of the partonic transverse momentum. Assuming Gaussian behavior in the transverse momentum plane, there are good indications for flavor dependence in the transverse momentum dependence of fragmentation functions, whereas the evidences are weaker for the distribution functions. We explore the impact of QCD evolution on the phenomenological description of SIDIS data, distinguishing the contributions to the evolution kernel related to intrinsic and perturbative transverse momentum.

The beauty and charm content in events with at least one jet have been extracted using the invariant mass of charged tracks associated with secondary vertices and the decay-length significance of these vertices. Differential cross sections as a function of $Q^2$, Bjorken-$x$, jet transverse energy and pseudorapidity were measured and compared with next-to-leading-order QCD calculations. The beauty and charm contributions to the proton structure functions were extracted from the double differential cross section as a function of $x$ and $Q^2$. The running beauty-quark mass is determined from a QCD fit at next-to-leading order to HERA data for the first time.

        Are b-PDFs (and b-fragmentation functions) needed at the LHC? 25m
        Several key processes at the LHC in the standard model and beyond that involve bottom quarks, such as single-top, Higgs, and weak vector boson associated production, can be described in QCD either in a 4-flavor or 5-flavor scheme. In the former, b quarks appear only in the final state and are typically considered massive. In 5-flavor schemes, calculations include b quarks in the initial state, are simpler and allow the resummation of possibly large initial state logarithms of the type log(Q/mb) into the b parton distribution function (PDF), Q being the typical scale of the hard process. An analogous classification can be applied to processes involving bottom quarks in the final state, in which the b fragmentation acts like the b PDF. In this talk, I provide an explanation of why and how a substantial agreement between total cross sections can be obtained in the two schemes, as far as the initial state is concerned, and I present preliminary results for processes featuring heavy quarks in the final state.

However, such computations are used frequently in modern phenomenological analyses like determinations of the strong coupling constant, $\alpha_s$, and the parton distribution functions (PDFs) of the proton. The fastNLO framework uses multi-dimensional interpolation techniques to factorize the convolutions of the perturbative coefficients with the PDFs and $\alpha_s$. The time-consuming part is only performed once and the results are stored in a flexible standardized format and can then subsequently be used for very fast calculations of the same quantity for arbitrary PDFs, $\alpha_s$, and for any choice of the renormalization and factorization scales. This talk focusses on recent develepments on the fastNLO framework and the generalization of the fastNLO approach to NNLO calculations. The fastNLO concept presented can be applied to any kind of process in high energy particle collisions and a new flexible computer code can easily be interfaced with any existing cross section calculation. As an example, we discuss the usage of recent differential cross section calculations for top-quark pair production in approximate NNLO in the fastNLO framework.

        Variable flavor number scheme for final state jets 20m
        We discuss a variable flavor number scheme for final state jets which can account for the effects of arbitrary finite quark masses for inclusive jet observables. The scheme is a generalization of the ACOT variable flavor number scheme with additional dynamical scales. It is based on a consistent description of massive collinear and soft modes allowing also for a treatment of rapidity divergences. We emphasize general properties, the calculations of threshold corrections, consistency conditions and relations to mass singularities found in fixed-order massive calculations. Specific examples covered are massive quark effects in event shapes and DIS.

        Hessian PDF reweighting meets the Bayesian methods 25m
        We discuss the Hessian PDF reweighting - a technique intended to estimate the effects that new measurements have on a set of PDFs. The method stems straightforwardly from considering new data in a usual $\chi^2$ fit and it naturally incorporates also non-zero values for the tolerance, $\Delta \chi^2 > 1$. In comparison to the contemporary Bayesian reweighting techniques, there is no need to generate large ensembles of PDF Monte-Carlo replicas, and the observables need to be evaluated only with the central and the error sets of the original PDFs. In spite of the apparently rather different methodologies, we show that the Hessian and the Bayesian techniques are actually one and the same, but only if the $\Delta \chi^2$ criterion is properly included to the Bayesian likelihood function that is a simple exponential. We illustrate the situation by considering a simplified example and the case of inclusive jets at the LHC.

        The LHC p+Pb run from the nuclear PDF perspective 25m
        The first p+Pb run at the LHC has opened a possibility to investigate the validity of the collinear factorization in a clearly higher energy scale than earlier in the nuclear collisions. Indeed, some processes that have been measured routinely in p+p($\overline {\rm p}$) collisions and utilized for years in free proton PDF fits, can now finally be reached also in the nuclear case. Such new data are expected to provide conclusive answers concerning the universality of the nuclear PDFs. In this talk, I will contrast some of the first, very recent p+Pb measurements to the predictions based on the nuclear PDFs, and discuss the insights and constraints these data offer. In particular, I will emphasize the inclusive (di)jet and $W^\pm$ production.

        The nCTEQ PDFs: LHC data and nuclear uncertainties 25m
        A global analysis of the proton PDF requires a combination of DIS, DY, and jet data. The flavor differentiation depends heavily on the DIS data, all of which is measured on nuclear targets in neutrino scattering; hence the nuclear PDFs (nPDFs) come into play. Additionally, the LHC heavy ion runs with lead beams provide information in an entirely new kinematic regime; here, the W/Z production process is particularly enlightening. We study the compatibility of these data sets in a global nPDF analysis and extract the nuclear correction factors, and discuss the observed tensions between the nuclear correction factors in various data sets. We also quantify the nPDF uncertainty using a set of error PDF functions and show comparisons with recent nPDF determinations.

        We present results for forward jet production in p-p and p-Pb collisions at LHC within the High Energy Factorization (HEF) framework, obtained using new Monte Carlo programs. The HEF framework incorporates a convolution of unintegrated gluon densities and off-shell matrix elements. We briefly discuss both components: the relevant evolution equations and methods to obtain tree level off-shell matrix elements in a gauge invariant way. In particular, a new program capable to obtain the latter analytically for multiple off-shell legs is presented.

        Forward-Central Jet Correlations 20m
        The azimuthal correlation between forward and central jets is measured in proton–proton collisions at the LHC, at the centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV. The forward jet is reconstructed in the hadronic forward (HF) calorimeter in the pseudorapidity region 3.2 < |η| < 4.7, while the central jet is limited to |η| < 2.8. At least one central jet and one forward jet are required to have transverse momentum of pT > 35 GeV. The azimuthal angle between the jets is measured for different separations in pseudorapidity, with the largest separation being ∆η = 7.5 units. The analysis is carried out for inclusive dijet events and for two subsamples, one where an additional jet is required between the forward and the central jet, and one where the additional jet is vetoed. Comparisons between data and several different Monte Carlo models and tunes show a large sensitivity to the modeling of QCD radiation.

        Measurement of Drell-Yan and associated jet cross section at low and high invariant masses 20m
        Measurements of the differential Drell-Yan and associated jet cross section as a function of the Drell-Yan mass are presented using an integrated luminosity of 4.9 fb-1 in the dimuon channel of proton-proton collision data recorded with the CMS detector at the LHC at sqrt s =7 TeV. Cross sections as a function of the Drell-Yan transverse momentum are measured differentially in the Drell-Yan mass range of 30 to 1500 GeV. The pt spectrum of the Drell-Yan allows to study multiple-gluon emissions and resummation effects. The cross section for Drell-Yan production in association with one or two jets with pT > 30 GeV in the range | eta | < 4.5 are measured. Multi-jet emissions in a rapidity interval between the DY and the leading jet is a sensitive probe for multi-gloun emissions. The jet multiplicity in Drell-Yan production as a function of the rapidity separation of the leading jet and the Drell-Yan is presented. All measurements are compared to Monte Carlo predictions including matrix elements plus parton showers.

The charged-particle jets (tracks) are measured in the pseudorapidity range |eta| < 1.9 (2.4) for transverse momenta pT > 1 (0.8)GeV. The yield distribution integrated over a given minimum transverse momentum pTmin, falls steeply with increasing pTmin, and provides information on the mechanism by which the underlying parton-parton cross sections are unitarized approaching the low-pT non-perturbative domain. Predictions obtained from various Monte Carlo event generators are compared to the measurements.

The approach is based on the linear resummation model introduced by Sta\'{s}to. It is generalized to account for nonlinearity in the diffusive regime. The validity of the diffusive evolution at strong coupling is supported by the AdS/CFT consideration, as well as perturbative arguments. The solution of the proposed equation is presented as well as the generated saturation scale.

        High-energy evolution equations like BFKL, BK or JIMWLK are derived formally at infinite energy. In order to use those equations to resum leading logs in a physical observable at any finite energy in a consistent way, one needs to modifiy these equations by a kinematical constraint. I will discuss this issue in general, and show how to address the additional complications arising in position space, relevant for the BK and BFKL equations, and in the gluon saturation regime. This represent a further step towards gluon saturation phenomenology at NLO/NLL accuracy.

        The rapidity (energy) evolution of hadronic observables in scattering of a dilute perturbative projectile on a dense gluonic target is described in QCD by the JIMWLK equation. This is a functional non-linear equation that is consistent with the QCD unitarity. JIMWLK reduces to the linear BFKL equation when the scattering probability is low. I'll first sketch the way the leading order JIMWLK equation is derived and then discuss the alpha_{s}^{2} corrections. Partially based on hep-ph/1310.0378.

        Next-to-Eikonal corrections for gluon production in pA 20m
        In the high energy limit, scattering processes can be described within the eikonal approximation, neglecting contributions which are power-suppressed at high energy. In the case of processes involving a large nuclear target, like pA or AA collisions, the Color Glass Condensate effective theory (CGC) is one of the most convenient formalisms based on the eikonal approximation. However, at LHC and RHIC energies, it is not known to what extent is the eikonal approximation reliable. We develop a method to expand systematically propagators in a strong background field, beyond the eikonal approximation. This allows one to calculate the power-suppressed corrections with respect to the CGC which are enhanced by the width of the target. As a first example, we calculate such next-to-eikonal power-suppressed corrections for central gluon production in pA collisions. In that context, the first corrections (linear in the width of the target) vanish for the unpolarized cross-section, making the CGC more reliable than expected, but dominate in the case of some single-transverse-spin asymmetries.

        On effects of multiple gluons in J/psi hadroproduction 20m
        Prompt J/psi hadroduction is analyzed beyond the leading twist two-gluon production mechanism. A contribution to the process is sudied in detail in which the meson production is mediated by three-gluon partonic state, with two gluons coming from the target and one gluon from the projectile. This contribution enters at non-leading twist, but is enhanced at large energies due to large double gluon density at small x. The three-gluon contribution to prompt J/psi production is calculated within perturbative QCD, in the k_T factorisation framework, and it is found to provide a significant correction to the standard leading twist cross-section at the energies of the Tevatron or the LHC. The results are given as differential pT-dependent cross-sections for J/psi polarisation components.

        Higgs Pair Production via Vector Boson Fusion at the LHC 20m
        The measurement of Higgs pair production will be one of the cornerstones of the LHC physics program in the coming years, with the upcoming of the high-energy and high-luminosity phase. The Vector Boson Fusion (VBF) production channel probes directly the coupling of new physics and of Higgs to gauge bosons, in addition to reducing background contribution. In the VBF channel, the production of Higgs pairs is sensitive to the strong interactions of a composite Higgs boson, and would allow a direct extraction of the hhVV quartic coupling. Other anomalous couplings of the Higgs to itself or to vector bosons would also lead to modified production rate and kinematics. In addition, the production via VBF of an heavy object on-shell, subsequently decaying to a Higgs boson pair, may occur: the case of a kk-graviton from warped extra dimension models will be taken as a benchmark.

        Study of the Lambda$_b$ decay properties with the ATLAS experiment 24m
        The ATLAS detector at the LHC is collecting - among others - a large statistics of Lambda_b decays, allowing the study of production and decay properties of this b-flavored hadron. This statistics is what allowed one of the most precise measurements of the Lambda_b lifetime. We will review ATLAS' latest results on the decay properties of this baryon, including the measurement of the parity violating asymmetry parameter alpha_b in Lambda_b -> Lambda J/psi, obtained from the study of angular correlations in the p pi- mu+ mu- final state. The measurement is compared to predictions based on perturbative QCD and heavy quarks effective theory.

        Deeply Virtual Compton Scattering to the twist-four accuracy: Impact of finite-t and target mass corrections 25m
        We carry out the first complete calculation of kinematic power corrections $\sim t/Q^2$ and $\sim m^2/Q^2$ to several key observables in Deeply Virtual Compton Scattering. The issue of convention dependence of the leading twist approximation is discussed in detail. In addition we work out representations for the higher twist corrections in terms of double distributions, Mellin-Barnes integrals and also within a dissipative framework. This study removes an important source of uncertainties in the QCD predictions for intermediate photon virtualities $Q^2\sim 1$-$5\,\text{GeV}^2$ that are accessible in the existing and planned experiments. In particular the finite-t corrections are significant and must be taken into account in the data analysis.

        Crossed channel analysis of quark and gluon generalized parton distributions with helicity flip 25m
        Quark and gluon helicity flip generalized parton distributions (GPDs) are seen to be a convenient tool to address the transversity quark and gluon structure of the nucleon. In order to construct a theoretically consistent parametrization of these hadronic matrix elements, we work out the set of combinations of those GPDs suitable for the SO(3) partial wave (PW) expansion in the cross-channel. This universal result will help to build up a flexible parametrization of these important hadronic non-perturbative quantities. We also discuss the possible phenomenological applications.

        A classification of chiral-odd pion generalized parton distributions beyond leading twist 25m
        We define in a systematic way, based on the light-cone collinear factorization method, the chiral-odd generalized parton distributions (GPDs) of a pseudoscalar hadron (such as the $\pi^0$) up to twist 6. For that, we introduce the relevant matrix elements for 2-parton non-local operators, as well as matrix elements for 3-parton non-local correlators. Their detailed parametrization is fixed based on parity, charge conjugation and time reversal invariance. The reduction of these GPDs to a minimal set is performed by the use of constraints provided by QCD equations of motion and rotation on the light-cone.

        Transverse densities in the nucleon's chiral periphery 25m
        Transverse densities describe the nucleon's spatial structure in the parton picture and correspond to a projection of the GPDs in the impact parameter representation. We use chiral effective field theory to calculate the transverse charge and current densities in the nucleon's chiral periphery (transverse distances b ~ 1/m_pi) and study their properties [1]. The peripheral densities are expressed in terms of the light-cone wave function of the chiral pion-nucleon system, calculable directly from the chiral Lagrangian. A simple mechanical interpretation of the peripheral densities is obtained in terms of the (classical) orbital angular momentum structure of the system. We also extend these studies to the peripheral transverse densities of matter and momentum, related to the energy-momentum tensor form factors, and verify their relation to moments of peripheral GPDs.

        DVCS measurements at HERMES 25m
        Deeply Virtual Compton Scattering is currently one of the most promising processes that provides information about the structure of the nucleon in the framework of Generalized Parton Distributions. During its last years the Deeply Virtual Compton Scattering process was extensively studied at HERMES experiment through measurement of cross section asymmetries. To the virtue of unique experimental conditions, HERMES had collected a wealth of data on scattering a longitudinally polarized lepton (electron/positron) beam off unpolarized, longitudinally and transversely polarized hydrogen targets, as well as off unpolarized and longitudinally polarized deuterium targets. During the past two years of HERA operation a recoil detector around the target area allowed for the full kinematic reconstruction of the exclusive DVCS event, leading to a clean measurement of the beam-helicity asymmetry with background well below the 1% level. The recoil detector also allowed for first measurement of the related process of associated DVCS, in which the proton is excited to a Delta resonance, giving access to transition GPDs. In this talk these recent results using the recoil detector will be presented.

        The $g_2$ Spin Structure Function 30m
        Jefferson Lab has been at the forefront of a program to study the polarized structure of nucleons. Measurements of the spin-dependent structure functions, $g_1$ and $g_2$, have proven to be powerful tools in testing and understanding Quantum Chromodynamics. To measure $g_2$ a transversely polarized target is needed, which proves to be challenging experimentally. Prior to JLab, the only dedicated experiment to measure $g_2$ was SLAC E155x, which shows consistency with the leading twist $g_2^{WW}$ prediction, but has large uncertainties. The function $g_2^n$ has been measured extensively in Hall A at JLab over a wide range of $Q^2$. The Resonances Spin Structure (RSS) experiment in Hall C gave a precision measurement of $g_2$ for the proton and deuteron at intermediate $Q^2$, providing the first world data for $g_2^{p,d}$ in the nucleon resonance region. The Spin Asymmetries of the Nucleon experiment (SANE), also performed in Hall C, provided a measurement of $g_2$ in the high $Q^2$ (DIS) region. More recently, the $g_2^p$ experiment took data covering the low $Q^2$ region. The 0$^{th}$ moment of $g_2$ provides a test of the Burkhardt-Cottingham sum rule, which states that the integral of $g_2$ over the Bjorken scaling variable x goes to zero. This sum rule, valid for all values of $Q^2$, has been satisfied for the neutron, but a violation is suggested for the proton at high $Q^2$. The 2$^{nd}$ moment allows for a benchmark test of lattice QCD predictions at high $Q^2$ with $d_2$, and a test of Chiral Pertubation Theory at low $Q^2$. Specifically, the behavior of the longitudinally-transverse spin polarizability ($\delta_{LT}$), as $\chi$PT calculations of this quantity deviate significantly from the measured neutron data. This talk will provide an overview of the JLab effort to measure $g_2$, with a focus on the more recent $g_2^p$ experiment; the current status of the analysis will be discussed along with preliminary results.

        Single and double polarization asymmetries from deeply virtual exclusive $\pi^0$ electroproduction 30m
        The target and double spin asymmetry measurements of exclusive $\pi^0$ electroproduction were performed for the first time in DIS region at Jefferson Lab using the CEBAF Large Acceptance Spectrometer (CLAS) and longitudinally polarized proton target. The wide kinematic coverage and good resolution of CLAS allowed measurements in full azimuthal range providing an opportunity to extract single and double spin asymmetries proportional to polarized structure functions. Their angular dependences in hadronic center-of-mass system were analyzed, and extracted moments are compared to recent theoretical handbag-based calculations based on chiral-even and chiral-odd GPDs contributions. The interpretation of present results within the framework of the modified perturbative approach and their use as a constraint for models of the $t$ behavior will be discussed.

        Exclusive meson production at COMPASS 30m
        Hard exclusive leptoproduction of mesons on nucleons has played an important role in studies of the hadron structure and recently gained renewed interest as it allows access to generalised parton distributions (GPDs). GPDs provide a novel and comprehensive description of the partonic structure of the nucleon and contain a wealth of new information. For instance GPDs give a description of the nucleon as an extended object, referred to as 3-dimensional nucleon tomography, and give access to the orbital angular momentum of quarks. Exclusive meson production is sensitive to various types of GPDs for different flavours depending on the quark content and the quantum numbers of the meson ($\rho^0$, $\phi$, $\pi^{0}$, ...). In this talk we will summarize recent measurements of exclusive vector meson production performed by the COMPASS Collaboration. In particular, recent results on single-spin and double-spin asymmetries for exclusive $\rho^0$ and $\omega$ production measured on the transversely polarized proton target will be presented. Some of these asymmetries are sensitive to the GPDs $E$, which are related to the orbital angular momentum of quarks. Other asymmetries are sensitive to the chiral-odd, transverse GPDs $H_{T}$. Our results provide the first experimental evidence from the hard exclusive vector meson production for the existence of non-vanishing GPDs $H_{T}$.

The main physics topics to be explored at this new facility are (i) the polarized sea quark and gluon distributions in the nucleon, (ii) QCD dynamics of the low-x, high density gluon regime, (iii) hadronization and energy loss in the nuclear medium. A dedicated eRHIC detector, designed to efficiently register and identify deep inelastic electron scattering (DIS) processes in a wide range of center-of-mass energies available with the new collider is one of the key elements of this upgrade.

        Physics opportunities at the MEIC at JLab 20m
        The Electron-Ion Collider (EIC) is envisioned as the next-generation US facility for exploring the strong interaction. The Medium-energy EIC (MEIC) is the first stage of the EIC at Jefferson Lab (JLab), designed to support the full program for the generic EIC, aimed at mapping the spin- and spatial structure of the quark and gluon sea in the nucleon, understanding the emergence of hadronic matter from color charge, and probing the gluon fields in nuclei. The kinematic coverage of the MEIC will on one end connect to JLab 12 GeV, and on the other to HERA (or a future LHeC). In order to achieve these goals, the accelerator is designed to provide high performance for polarized protons, deuterons, and other light ions, as well as different species of heavy ions, and will accommodate a full-acceptance detector able to measure the complete final state. In particular, it will tag spectators with a resolution << than the Fermi momentum, catch all nuclear and partonic target fragments, and to provide a wide coverage in -t for recoil baryons from exclusive (diffractive) reactions at all beam energies. The combination of a high luminosity, polarized lepton and ion beams, and detectors fully integrated with the accelerator will make the EIC a quantum leap in our understanding of the fundamental structure of matter.

Such an EIC can be realized by the addition of an electron beam to the existing Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC). This facility is called eRHIC. The STAR experiment, one of the two major experiments at RHIC, intends to evolve itself into eSTAR, a detector suitable for the initial stage of eRHIC. The evolution of STAR to eSTAR will be discussed in combination with detector upgrades and an assessment of eSTAR physics performance.

        Probing Gluon Saturation through Dihadron Correlations at an Electron-Ion Collider 20m
        It is the ultimate goal of nuclear physics to understand the emergence of nuclear structure and dynamics in terms of quarks and gluons. Although past experiments were successful in determining the quark behavior in the nucleon and light nuclei, the gluons that determine the essential features of the strong interactions, remain largely unexplored. Of great interest is especially the high parton density (small x) regime where gluon self-interaction is expected to dominate and lead to parton saturation. Two-particle azimuthal angle correlations have been reckoned to be one of the most direct and sensitive probes to access the underlying gluon dynamics. In this talk, we will report on detailed studies of dihadron correlation measurements in ep and eA collisions taking into account saturation effects as well as parton shower processes. The potential of using these measurements to study the saturation regime will be discussed.

        The Large Hadron Electron Collider (LHeC) is a proposed facility which will exploit the LHC and FCC heavy ion beams for electron-nucleus scattering, using either a new 60 GeV electron accelerator or one of the FCC 'ee' beams. The kinematic coverage extends beyond previous deep inelastic lepton-ion experiments by nearly four orders of magnitude at low Bjorken-x and towards higher $Q^2$. This contribution summarises the content of the simulations in the Conceptual Design report, plus its relation with the LHC with emphasis on pPb data, and the outlook towards a Technical Design report. After an introduction on the open problems in pA and eA collisions and the expected impact on the heavy ion program, we show inclusive observables and new results on the resulting constraints on nuclear parton densities. We then analyse the possibilities for inclusive and exclusive diffraction and the opportunities that they offer to reveal the non-linear dynamics which tame the low-x growth of parton densities. Finally, we discuss semi-inclusive measurements that will clarify the mechanism of hadronisation and QCD radiation inside the nuclear medium.

This allows us to write the dimension 6 Lagrangian as a function of these observables, so that predictions for any other process can be extracted as a funtion of these 18 measurements.

Firstly, we study the full list of operators connecting fermion DM to quarks and gluons, corresponding to integrating out a heavy mediator in the s-channel; secondly, we provide analytical results for the validity of the EFT description for both \sqrt{s}=8 TeV and 14 TeV; thirdly, we make use of a MonteCarlo event generator approach to assess the validity of our analytical conclusions. We apply our results to revisit the current collider bounds on the ultraviolet cut-off scale of the effective field theory and show that these bounds are weakened once the validity conditions of the effective field theory are imposed.

        Searches for mono-X at the LHC 30m
        If Dark Matter interacts weakly with Standard Model particles it can be produced at the LHC and identified via initial state radiation (ISR) of the incoming partons. The signature left in the detector is that of the ISR particle (jet, photon, Z or W) recoiling off of the invisible Dark Matter particles, resulting in a large momentum imbalance. Similar signatures result from the compactification of extra spatial dimensions in the Arkani-Hamed, Dimopoulos, and Dvali model resulting in a Kaluza-Klein tower of massive graviton modes. The mono-X signature is also sensitive to a large class of SUSY models. However, since the scalar interaction between DM particles and quarks is proportional to the quark mass, the sensitivity for this case can be further improved in searches with final states including the top quark. The talk presents results from searches for new physics in final states containing a single jet, photon, W or Z boson, and a single or a pair of top quarks accompanied by missing transverse energy studied by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at the LHC.

We present a review of non-MSSM based searches for new physics beyond the standard model in final states containing top quarks and/or bottom quarks. This includes includes searches for heavy gauge bosons, excited quarks, chirall and vector-like top quark partners. The searches span a range of final states, from multi-leptonic to entirely hadronic, and many results use novel analysis techniques to reconstruct the highly boosted final states that are created in these topologies. The searches are performed on data collected with the CMS experiment in proton-proton collisions at the LHC at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 and 8 TeV. 107: Searches for vector-like quarks, ttbar resonances and W' to tb with the ATLAS detector (joint with the TOP group) Various extensions of the Standard Model predict the existence of new types of quarks.

        Production of charmonium(-like) and their botomonium counterparts at ATLAS 30m
        A precise understanding of the relative contributions to Charmonium production from prompt and non-prompt production modes is necessary in order to better understand the various charmonium production modes and their properties. We present new, double-differential production cross-section measurements of the J/psi, psi(2S) and X(3872) charmonium states, extending into new kinematic environments with high precision. The results are presented separately for prompt and non-prompt production modes, and relative production rates for psi(2S) to J/psi are also presented. The fractions of J/psi and psi(2S) that are produced from the decay of a B hadron are also measured in fine pT and rapidity intervals over the ATLAS acceptance region, which will provide important input to modelling of heavy flavour production for future measurements. Results compared with the latest theoretical calculations and models. The existence of the X(3872) suggests the presence of bottomonium counterpart. Search for X_b in the final state of Upsilon pi pi is presented.

        Spin effects in Bottomonium at Belle 20m
        Spin effects have a dominant role in the understanding of the dynamic of the Bottomonium system, both in the transitions and in the correlation among light hadrons being produced in their annihilation. Naively we expect a suppression of the transitions with spin flipping terms, but recent results on $\eta$ transitions from $\Upsilon(4S)$ and $\Upsilon(5S)$ challenge this approach. The most recent results from Belle on this field will help to clarify the role of the spin in the modeling of the single- and two-meson transitions. Besides this the Belle collaboration is performing an extensive series of studies on baryon production in bottomonium decays, meant to address the two-baryon correlation in $\Upsilon(1S)$ annihilation and the precise measurement of hyperon inclusive production rates in $e^+e^-$ collision. The search for the long sought $H$ dibaryon is part of this effort.

        Search for doubly-charmed baryons and study of charmed-strange baryon states at Belle 20m
        Baryon states have provided excellent testing ground of QCD and our understanding of strong interactions. In recent years, there has been much experimental progress in charmed baryons from the Belle and BaBar experiments but there are no experimentally established doubly-charmed baryons. The existing evidence for doubly-charmed baryon \Xi_{cc}^+ from the SELEX experiment has not been supported by any other experiment. In this talk, we present the search for doubly charmed baryons in the e+ e- collision at or near \sqrt{s} = 10.58 GeV performed by Belle, with its full data sample of 980 fb^-1 produced by the KEKB collider and collected by the Belle detector. In addition, we report newly measured properties of the charmed-strange baryon, \Xi_{c}(2645)^+.

        Gluonic Excitations and Experimental Hall-D at Jefferson Lab 25m
        A new tagged photon beam facility is being constructed in experimental Hall-D at Jefferson Lab as a part of the 12 GeV upgrade program. The 9 GeV linearly-polarized photon beam will be produced via coherent Bremsstrahlung using the CEBAF electron beam, incident on a diamond radiator. The GlueX experiment in Hall-D will use this photon beam to search for and study the pattern of gluonic excitations in the meson spectrum produced through photoproduction reactions with a liquid hydrogen target. Recent lattice QCD calculations predict a rich spectrum of hybrid mesons, that are formed by exciting the gluonic field that couples the quarks. A subset of these hybrid mesons are predicted to have exotic quantum numbers which cannot be formed from a simple $q\bar{q}$ pair, and thus provide an ideal laboratory for testing QCD in the confinement regime. In this talk the status of the construction and installation of the GlueX detector will be presented, in addition to simulation results for some reactions of interest in hybrid meson searches. Finally, we will present some highlights from the other proposed Hall-D experimental programs.

        The GPD program at COMPASS II 20m
        The high energy polarised muon beam available at CERN with the option of using positive or negative muons with opposite polarisation gives COMPASS an excellent possibility to study generalised parton distributions via deeply virtual Compton scattering and hard exclusive meson production. In a first step we will use an unpolarised proton target to measure the $x_{Bj}$-dependence of the $t$-slope of the DVCS cross section to observe a possible shrinkage of the nucleon with increasing $x_{Bj}$. Furthermore, the beam charge and spin difference and sum will be measured over a wide kinematic range to determine the Compton form factor related to real and imaginary parts of the GPD $H$. As a second step we consider to use a transversely polarised proton target to collect data to constrain the GPD $E$. An exploratory measurement was performed in 2012 with the COMPASS spectrometer upgraded with a proton recoil detector surrounding a 2.5 m long liquid hydrogen target and an enlarged acceptance for photon detection. The status of the analysis and the perspectives for the planned measurements in 2016/17 will be discussed.

        Charged current DIS on longitudinally polarised nucleons at an EIC 25m
        The proposed Electron-Ion Collider (EIC) aims to provide us with our clearest understanding yet of nucleon spin structure. Among its novel capabilities is the ability to study charged-current (CC) deep-inelastic scattering (DIS) on longitudinally polarised nucleons. This will provide invaluable and complimentary information to conventional, electromagnetic DIS, by probing a different set of quark flavour combinations, and giving access to high $Q^{2}$. We present the results of a detailed study into the prospects of CC polarised DIS at an EIC. Using a new version of the DJANGOH event generator, extended to handle polarised nucleons, we investigate the charged-current asymmetries, accounting for QED, QCD and electroweak radiative effects. Accounting for the expected EIC detector performance, we investigate the accuracy of the Jacquet-Blondel method in reconstructing the event kinematics from the hadronic final state. We find that the asymmetries are large and measurable with very high precision at an EIC. We then show the significant impact of such data when incorporated into an NLO global QCD analysis.

        Future prospects of di-jet production at forward rapidity constraining $\Delta g(x)$ at low $\mathbf{x}$ in polarized $\mathbf{\vec{p}+\vec{p}}$ collisions at RHIC 25m
        One of the main objectives of the high-energy spin physics program at RHIC at BNL is the precise determination of the polarized gluon distribution function, $\Delta g(x)$. Polarized $\vec{p}+\vec{p}$ collisions at $\sqrt{s}=200\,$GeV and at $\sqrt{s}=500\,$GeV at RHIC provide a unique way to probe the proton spin structure using very well established processes in high-energy physics, both experimentally and theoretically. Inclusive measurements, such as inclusive jet production and hadron production, have so far been the prime focus of various released results at $\sqrt{s}=200\,$GeV constraining $\Delta g(x)$ for $0.05 < x < 0.2$. A recent global analysis provides for the first time evidence of a non-zero value of the gluon polarization $\int_{\tiny 0.05}^{\tiny 0.2}\Delta g (x)\, dx \,(Q^{2}=10\,{\rm GeV}^{2}) = 0.1^{+0.06}_{-0.07}$. First results of di-jet production at $\sqrt{s}=200\,$GeV by the STAR collaboration will allow a better constraint of the underlying event kinematics. Extending the current program to smaller values of $x$ is a key goal for the future high-energy spin physics program at RHIC. Forward di-jet production at the STAR experiment beyond the current acceptance of $-1<\eta<+2$, in particular those carried out at $\sqrt{s}=500\,$GeV, provides access to low $x$ values at the level of $10^{-3}$ where current uncertainties of $\Delta g(x)$ remain very large. Recent STAR jet results constraining $\Delta g(x)$ will be briefly summarized followed by a detailed presentation of the physics case of forward di-jet production at $\sqrt{s}=500\,$GeV for $+2.5<\eta<+4$ requiring an upgrade of the STAR forward detection system. This includes a discussion of the kinematic coverage and projected uncertainties for different di-jet topological configurations allowing to optimize the underlying partonic asymmetries to probe $\Delta g(x)$ below the currently accessible $x$ range as low as $10^{-3}$ in $x$. Those measurements will eventually be complemented by a future Electron-Ion Collider facility probing $\Delta g(x)$ in polarized $\vec{e}+\vec{p}$ collisions.

        Physics opportunities with tagged deep inelastic scattering on polarized light nuclei at EIC 25m
        Unpolarized and polarized deep inelastic lepton scattering off light nuclei (deuterium, He-3) with detection of spectator nucleon(s) at EIC offers unique opportunities to address fundamental open questions of QCD such as the spin structure of the neutron, the effect of nuclear binding on quark and gluon distributions, and the onset of coherent nuclear effects in high-energy processes. We present an overview of the physics of "tagged DIS" on polarized light ions, the key processes and observables, emphasizing the advantages of forward nucleon tagging in collider kinematics. We report about results of recent R&D simulating the extraction of the unpolarized and polarized neutron structure functions from tagged DIS off deuterium and demonstrating the feasibility of such measurements with EIC, and outline future directions in this effort.

        Transverse Spin Physics at PHENIX 20m
        In the past decade, the data from transverse spin p+p from RHIC and polarized DIS experiments have enabled enormous progress in our understanding of the transverse spin dynamics in the proton. PHENIX Collaboration has carried out a very active program of transverse spin measurements including transverse spin asymmetries (TSSAs) in the production of light/heavy quark, of leading neutrons at forward rapidity, and of di-hadron/jet spin correlations in a wide kinematic range. All of these are crucial toward solving the transverse spin puzzle by disentangling the Sivers, the Collins and other spin effects. In the next two years we plan to collect new data on transversely polarized p+p and on p+A with high luminosities. In this talk, I will summarize the recent results from PHENIX, and discuss the near-term prospects of new physics measurements enabled by the newly installed silicon vertex tracker (FVTX) and the MPC-EX detectors currently under construction.

        Drell-Yan physics at COMPASS 20m
        The COMPASS experiment at CERN will start in the coming months its Drell-Yan (DY) physics program. This is the first transversely polarized target Drell-Yan measurement ever performed. Using a high intensity pion beam at 190 GeV/c momentum, the collected statistics over one year of data-taking will provide new insight to the transverse momentum dependent (TMD) parton distribution functions. During the last decade, COMPASS measured the azimuthal single spin asymmetries in semi-inclusive DIS (SIDIS) processes which contributed in a decisive way to the present knowledge of the nucleon TMDs. The predicted sign change of the Sivers and Boer-Mulders TMDs when accessed from SIDIS or from DY processes will be experimentally verified by this new DY measurement. The unpolarized Drell-Yan physics and the EMC effect studies, made possible by the inclusion of thin nuclear targets in the setup, will also be presented. The feasibility for a first look at the kaon induced Drell-Yan process will be discussed. The possibility to do detailed J\psi polarization studies with large statistics, bringing new input to a long-standing problem, will be discussed as well.

        Transverse single-spin asymmetries in $W^{\pm}$ and $Z^{0}$ bosons production in p+p collisions at RHIC 30m
        The Sivers function $ f^\perp_{1T} $ describes the correlation of parton transverse momentum with the transverse spin of the nucleon. There is evidence of a quark Sivers effect in semi-inclusive DIS (SIDIS) measurements. In SIDIS, the quark Sivers function is associated with a final state effect from the gluon exchange between the struck quark and the target nucleon remnants. On the other hand, for the virtual photon production in the Drell-Yan process, the Sivers asymmetry appears as an initial state interaction effect. As a consequence, the quark Sivers functions are of opposite sign in SIDIS and in Drell-Yan and this non-universality is a fundamental prediction from the gauge invariance of QCD. The experimental test of this sign change is one of the open questions in hadronic physics, and can provide a direct verification of TMD factorization. While luminosities required for a precise measurement of asymmetries in Drell-Yan production are challenging, $W^{\pm}/Z^{0}$ production is equally sensitive to the predicted sign change and can be well measured at the STAR experiment. The results can also provide essential input to study the evolution effects of the Sivers function, because of the high $Q^{2}$ in $W/Z^{0}$-production. The W boson kinematics are fully reconstructed from the decay lepton and the recoil, by employing a MC-based correction, thus avoiding the dilution that an asymmetry reconstructed from the decay lepton only would suffer. We will present progress toward the first measurement of the transverse single spin asymmetry, $A_{N}$, of the $W^{\pm}/Z^{0}$ bosons from the STAR experiment at RHIC.

        Dipole amplitude with uncertainty estimate from HERA data and applications in Color Glass Condensate phenomenology 20m
        The Color Class Condensate offers a consistent framework to describe high-energy (small-x) data from various experiments. The non-perturbative input for these calculations, the dipole-target amplitude at initial Bjorken-x, can be obtained by performing a fit to electron-proton deep inelastic scattering data. We determine the initial condition for the small-x evolution equation (rcBK) from the HERA DIS data using a new parametrization that also keeps the unintegrated gluon distribution positive. We also obtain error sets that can be used to compute uncertainty estimates for any observable that depends on the dipole amplitude. As an application we compute single inclusive particle production in proton-proton and proton-nucleus collisions with uncertainty estimates. We show that the LHC data can be used to further constrain the initial dipole amplitude. In order to compute proton-nucleus collisions we generalize our dipole-proton amplitude to nuclear targets using only input from HERA and standard nuclear geometry. We obtain a good description with the available LHC nuclear suppression factor data. References: T. Lappi, H. Mäntysaari, in progress T. Lappi, H. Mäntysaari, Phys.Rev. D88 (2013) 114020

        Diffractive vector meson production in ultraperipheral heavy ion collisions from the Color Glass Condensate 20m
        Deep inelastic scattering is a powerful tool to study the structure of hadrons and test our understanding of the strong interaction. The precise proton structure function measurements done at HERA have been a crucial test for the Color Glass Condensate effective field theory description of the high energy hadronic interactions. Ideally one would want to continue the analysis with nuclear targets where gluon saturation effects are expected to be even stronger. Because the role of the electron in DIS events is to only act as a source of virtual photons, one can study the same physics in ultraperipheral (large impact parameter) heavy ion collisions. In these events the dominant process is the one where one nucleus acts as a photon source, and one is left with a similar photon-nucleus scattering as in DIS. Recently diffractive vector meson production in ultraperipheral collisions has gained a lot of theoretical and experimental attention, because the cross section is especially sensitive to the saturation effects and also probes the spatial distribution of gluons. For example the ALICE collaboration has measured the diffractive J/Psi cross sections in lead-lead collisions [1]. We calculate coherent and incoherent diffractive vector meson production from the Color Glass Condensate framework and compare our results and predictions with the ALICE data. We discuss the dependence on the vector meson properties and the modelling uncertainties. We also present predictions for proton-nucleus collisions. [2] [1] ALICE collaboration, Phys. Lett.

We also compare the total cross section for $\gamma p \to V p$ reaction with recent data extracted by of the LHCb collaboration. The amplitude for $\gamma p \to V p$ is used to predict cross section for exclusive photoproduction of $J/\Psi$ and $\Psi'$ mesons in proton-proton collisions. Both Dirac and Pauli electromagnetic form factors are included in the calculation and results are compared with old results (only Dirac form factor). The effect of Pauli form factor is quantified.

        Central $\mu^+ \mu^-$ production via photon-photon fusion in proton-proton collisions with proton dissociation 20m
        We report a study on the description of two-photon production of dimuons in proton-proton collisions. We focus on the region of high transverse momentum of the muon pairs, where contributions from proton dissociative events are important. Here one must go beyond the Weizsaecker-Williams approximation of collinear photons and take the photon transverse momenta into account. The resulting formalism in the high-energy limit can be understood as a type of $k_T$-factorization where the transverse momentum dependent photon fluxes play the role of ''unintegrated'' photon densities. We show that at large pair transverse momentum, the cross section becomes proportional to the unintegrated photon flux. The calculation of the unintegrated photon fluxes for dissociative events requires knowledge of proton structure functions in a broad range of $x_{Bj}$ and $Q^2$, which we will discuss. We also show a comparison with the LPAIR Monte-Carlo code.

        Higgs production within $k_t$-factorization with unintegrated gluon distribution functions 20m

Special attention is devoted to the Kimber-Martin-Ryskin distribution which is known to describe well gauge boson (W and Z) production, Drell-Yan processes and heavy quark production. We discuss and quantify contributions from different regions of incoming gluon transverse momenta dividing the space into hard and soft regions. We discuss how these regions may be roughly related to fixed-order LO, NLO and NNLO calculations. We include also the decay of the Higgs boson into photons and compare results with recent preliminary data of the ATLAS Collaboration for the Higgs boson transverse momentum and rapidity distributions. The lowest order $k_t$-factorization contribution gives similar shape for Higgs boson transverse momentum as the experimental one but underpredicts the new ATLAS data. We discuss that the lowest-order $k_t$-factorization result does not include e.g. NLO collinear-factorization contributions which are known to be large. We show $k_t$-factorization NLO contributions ($g g \to H g$) for different UGDFs. For completeness we show also contribution of $WW$ fusion. In addition, we show distributions in azimuthal angle between photons and distributions in two-dimensional space of $p_{1t} x p_{2t}$ of transverse momenta of photons. M. Luszczak, A.

The experimental data are compared to the NLO perturbative QCD calculations employing various sets of parton-to-hadron fragmentation functions. Most of the theoretical predictions are found to disastrously overpredict the measured LHC and Tevatron cross sections, even if the scale variations and PDF errors are accounted for. The problem appears to arise from the presently too hard gluon-to-hadron fragmentation functions.

We study observables based on measuring ratios of color-singlet currents via Higgs boson and Drell-Yan production, which may be accessed also at large pileup, and used for an experimental program on QCD physics of gluon fusion processes in the LHC high-luminosity runs. We present results of Monte Carlo calculations for a few specific examples.

        Azimuthal decorelations in forward central dijets production at LHC within high energy actorization 20m
        The results for azimuthal decorelations in production of forward and central jets in collision p+p and p+Pb are going to be presented. The considered cross section is obtained within framework of high energy factorization and makes use of gluon density obtained from BK equation extended to account for corrections of higher order.

        Hard exclusive J/\Psi photoproduction off a proton 20m
        We study the photoproduction of J/\Psi mesons off a proton in the kinematical regime of large energies and scattering angles within the framework of perturbative QCD. The heavy charm-quark mass is providing the relevant hard scale in the process. In particular, it is the so-called hard scattering approach which is taken as theoretical basis for our investigations. There the hadrons are replaced by their valence Fock states during the hard scattering and the large transfered momentum is redistributed by additionally attaching hard gluons to these valence quarks. We can show that in our perturbative treatment not the graphs where the photon directly fluctuates into the c \bar{c} pair give the dominant contribution in the investigated kinematical regime, but the graphs where the photon first couples to the valence quarks of the proton. We also give explicite predictions for \gamma p -> J/\Psi p cross sections, which are compared to experimental data where possible.

        FREE ENERGY AND DIRECT PHOTON EMISSION AT FINITE CHEMICAL POTENTIAL FROM QUARK-GLUON PLASMA 20m
        We extend to investigate the evolution of free energy and direct photon production from quark-gluon plasma (QGP) considering finite chemical potential. The evolution of QGP formation at the chemical potential is done through finite value of quark mass.The evolution rate is found to be decreasing with chemical potential. We further study the direct photon emission from fireball of such QGP and found the result to be increasing function of chemical potential in all the channels of photon production. It also shows enhancement of photon emission in comparison to the other theoretical calculation of direct photon productions.

        Associated-quarkonium production 20m
        In this talk, I discuss the growing interest to measure associated-quarkonium production in a number of channels at the LHC. Whereas back-to-back production of quarkonium + isolated photon provides a unique way to extract gluon TMDs [1], observables such as quarkonium + W/Z can be of great help to better understand the quarkonium production mechanism as well as to shed light on double-parton scatterings. Along these lines, quarkonium-pair production [4] is also a potentially rich source of information which has only started to be harvested.
