Dedicated to the memory of Lev Lipatov

The program of the Conference will address a broad range of topics covering the main areas of high-energy particle and nuclear physics. Our scientific program will include: Higgs Physics, Hadron Spectroscopy, Neutrino Physics, Hadron Structure, High-Energy QCD, Non-perturbative QCD, Heavy Ion collisions, Particle Detectors and Instrumentation, Beyond the SM Physics, Dark Matter searches, Phenomenology of AdS/CFT, Astroparticles, Future experiments, and other topics.

The aim of the Conference is to bring together young and senior scientists, theorists and experimentalists, to review the recent progress in high energy particle and nuclear physics. We strongly encourage presentations of physics results from experimental facilities (LHC, FermiLab, RHIC, JLab, DESY, etc), future experimental facilities (LHeC, FCC-ee, EIC, CTA, etc) and theoreticians to participate in the event.

Students and young postdocs are also encouraged to participate in the HEP School the week after the workshop on January 15-19.
