Description
This informal, brainstorming workshop held in conjunction with the IPPP (Institute for Particle Physics Phenomenology at Durham) will focus on the Standard Model measurements of vector boson + jets processes that we can perform in Run 2 of the LHC to enhance our understanding of the high transverse momentum phase space and constrain higher order QCD and electroweak corrections.
