This meeting follows the successful previous workshop held at the Nagoya University in September 2015. The is a joint workshop of the LHC forward physics working group meeting and the High-Energy Scattering at Zero degrees workshop (HESZ). This year, it aims at covering all aspects of forward physics at the LHC and at RHIC, benefiting from the experience gained at HERA and the Tevatron. The spirit of this meeting is to favour fruitful and informal discussions between experimentalists and theorists. Lots of time is devoted to discussion of new results, hot topics and exciting open problems in forward physics at RHIC and the LHC.

Subjects discussed in the Workshop are

  • multiplicities, energy measurements in forward region and very forward jets
  • BFKL and saturation
  • total cross section, low mass and soft diffraction
  • medium mass diffraction and the structure of Pomeron
  • Exclusive diffraction and BSM physics
  • heavy ions at RHIC and LHC
  • forward spin asymmetry
  • cosmic ray
  • hardware and future projects
