The study of strong-interaction matter under extreme conditions is one of the frontiers in high-energy nuclear physics. To better serve the research in this area and train future generation of physicists, the Institute of Particle Physics at the Central China Normal University has held annual “Huada School on QCD” sine 2012.  The 5th Huada School on QCD: QCD in the EIC Era will be held this year at Central China Normal University from May 23 to June 3, 2016. This two-week school is designed to provide professional training for graduate students, postdocs, junior research scientists and young teachers in the area of high-energy nuclear physics. We have invited Dr. Christopher Lee (Los Alamos National Laboratory), Dr. Jianwei Qiu (Brookhaven National Laboratory), Prof. C.-P. Yuan (Michigan State University) and Prof. Bowen Xiao (Central China Normal University) to give series of lectures on the basic theory and application of QCD in Electron-Ion Collider (EIC). The main topics to be covered include Factorization and resummation in QCD, QCD in collisions with polarized beams, small-x physics and gluon saturation physics, soft collinear effective theory in QCD. A one-day symposium will be held to discuss the latest development in EIC physics.

There is no registration fee. Lunch and dinner are provided free of charge. The accommodation will be arranged at the Gui-yuan Hotel on the campus of CCNU.  Students will be responsible for their own hotel and travel expenses. Limited support for local expenses (hotel and meals) is available for students from outside China. Those interested in the school should apply as soon as possible. The admission to the school will be based on the application dates and the status of the students in their graduate study. The summer school is funded by CCNU, and NSFC Grant for Innovative Research Team at CCNU, Center for Nuclear Matter Science, MOE Key Laboratory of Quark and Lepton Physics and Ministry of Science and Technology of China.

Wuhan, the capital of Hubei province, lies at the confluence of the Yangzi and Han Rivers, roughly midway between Beijing and Guangzhou. With a 3,500-year-long history, Wuhan is one of the most ancient and civilized metropolitan cities in China. Hubei is the birthplace of the brilliant ancient Chu Culture in China and has the reputation of junction of transportation artery to nine provinces and the land of thousand lakes.
