        Determination of the strong coupling constant $\alpha_s(M_Z)$ in next-to-next-to-leading order QCD using H1 jet cross section measurements 20m

        The strong coupling constant $\alpha_s(m_Z)$ is determined from inclusive jet and dijet cross sections in neutral-current deep-inelastic ep scattering (DIS) measured at HERA by the H1 collaboration using next-to-next-to-leading order (NNLO) QCD predictions. The dependence of the NNLO predictions and of the resulting value of $\alpha_s(m_Z)$ at the Z-boson mass m Z are studied as a function of the choice of the renormalisation and factorisation scales. Using inclusive jet and dijet data together, the strong coupling constant is determined to be $\alpha_s(m_Z)=0.1157\,(20)_{exp}\,(29)_{th}$ . Complementary, $\alpha_s(m_Z)$ is determined together with parton distribution functions of the proton (PDFs) from jet and inclusive DIS data measured by the H1 experiment. The value $\alpha_s(m_Z)=0.1142\,(28)_{tot}$ obtained is consistent with the determination from jet data alone. The impact of the jet data on the PDFs is studied. The running of the strong coupling is tested at different values of the renormalisation scale and the results are found to be in agreement with expectations.

        Determination of electroweak parameters using H1 inclusive DIS data 20m

        An improved determination of electroweak (EW) parameters using H1 inclusive neutral current and charged current DIS cross sections is presented. The analysis benefits from the usage of the previously published cross sections using longitudinally polarised lepton beams. The parameters are determined in a combined fit of EW parameters together with PDFs. The predictions include NNLO QCD corrections for the PDF and structure function calculations, and the corrections at the leptonic vertex are obtained in the on-shell scheme including the full set of 1-loop corrections. The analysis determines the weak neutral-current couplings of the light quarks and thus tests potential contributions beyond the SM. The mass of the W-boson is determined and a precision of 115 MeV is achieved.

        MC tuning using the HHT PDF set with the low-x higer-twist term. 20m

        In the HHT QCD fit the standard DGLAP evolution was augmented by including an additional low-x higher-twist term in the description of the longitudinal structure function, F$_\rm{L}$. This additional term significantly improves the description of the HERA reduced cross sections at low Bjorken-x and low four-momentum-transfer squared, Q$^2$. Since the HHT fit describes well data from the highest Q$^2$ down to Q$^2$ of a few GeV$^2$, it can be used in studies to tune MC samples using the LHC underlying event variables. Preliminary trsults of this tuning will be shown in this presentation.

        Jet Correlation Measurements at ATLAS and the determination of the strong coupling constant 20m

        The production of multi-jet final states at hadron colliders probes pQCD at several mass scales. The processes can also be used to probe the gluon density function of the proton. The ATLAS collaboration has used multi-jets events, recorded at a center of mass energy of 8 TeV, to measure the transverse energy-energy correlations, its asymmetry and the dijet azimuthal decorrelation. These measurements are particularly sensitive to the strong coupling constant with a reduced model dependency. The resulting value of $Äalpha_s$ and the corresponding tests of the renormalization group equation will be presents.

        TeV-PeV neutrino-nucleon cross section measurement with 5 years' IceCube data 20m

        IceCube is a 1 cubic kilometer size neutrino detector located at the South Pole. It is capable of detecting all-sky neutrinos of all flavors from GeV to EeV energies. After detector completion, it discovered and measured the flux of extraterrestrial neutrinos in the TeV - PeV energy range, alongside with flux of neutrinos of known atmospheric origin. In this talk we will present a novel analysis method and the preliminary result of the neutrino-nucleon Deep Inelastic Scattering (DIS) cross section measurement as a function of neutrino energy in the TeV – 10 PeV energy range utilizing neutrino absorption by the Earth.

        We analyzed five years of data collected with complete IceCube detector from May 2011 to May 2016. This analysis focuses on electromagnetic and hadronic showers (cascades) mostly induced by electron and tau neutrinos. The applied event selection features high background rejection (<10% background contamination below 60TeV, background free above 60TeV) in rejecting atmospheric muons and high signal efficiency (~80%). The final neutrino sample consists of about 5600 events, with about 420 events above 10TeV reconstructed energy. An unfolding method was applied to enable the mapping from reconstructed cascade parameters such as neutrino energy and zenith to true neutrino variables. The analysis was performed assuming isotropic astrophysical neutrino flux, in in seven energy bins, and in two zenith bins (“down-going” from the south-hemisphere and “up-going” from the north-hemisphere). The ratio of down-going events and up-going events (absorbed by the Earth at large energies) is sensitive to the neutrino-nucleon DIS cross section and is insensitive to the dominant neutrino flux uncertainties.

        The neutrino-nucleon DIS cross section preliminary result will be compared with the Standard Model theoretical calculation.

        Exclusive Photoproduction of $2\pi^+2\pi^-$ Final State at HERA 24m

        Exclusive production of four charged pions at the ep collider HERA is studied at small photon virtualities $Q^2<2$ GeV${}^2$. The data were taken with the H1 detector in the years 2006 and 2007 at a centre-of-mass energy of $\sqrt{s}=319$ GeV and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 7.6 pb$^{-1}$. The cross section of the reaction $\gamma p \to 2(\pi^+\pi^-)Y$ is determined in the phase space of $45\lt W_gp\lt 100$ GeV, $\vert t\vert\lt 1$ GeV${}^2$ and $M_Y\lt 1.6$ GeV. The $4\pi$ mass spectra indicate that the reaction proceeds predominatly via production and decay of $\rho^{\prime}(1450)$ and $\rho^{\prime\prime}(1700)$ resonances. Parameters of these resonances as well as production cross sections times branching ratio into four charged pions are estimated from the mass fit, which includes contributions from non-resonant $4\pi$ channel and interference terms.

        Deep inelastic scattering in the dipole picture at next-to-leading order 24m

        We study quantitatively [1] the importance of the recently derived NLO corrections [2,3,4] to the DIS structure functions at small x in the dipole formalism. We show that these corrections can be significant and depend on the factorization scheme used to resum large logarithms of energy into renormalization group evolution with the BK equation. This feature is similar to what has recently been observed for single inclusive forward hadron production [5,6]. Using a factorization scheme consistent with the one recently proposed for the single inclusive cross section, we show that it is possible to obtain meaningful results for the DIS cross sections. We also discuss ongoing work to combine these NLO DIS structure functions in the improved factorization scheme with the resummed/NLO BK evolution equation in order to do consistent NLO accuracy comparisons with HERA data.

        Inclusive photon production to NLO at small x as a probe of gluon saturation 24m

        We report on a first NLO computation of inclusive photon production at small x in
        e+A collisions. The computation is performed to next-to-leading-log x accuracy and resums all multiple scattering (higher twist) computations within the CGC effective theory. In the soft photon (Low) limit, we recover results the NLO results of Balitsky and Chirilli for inclusive DIS. We point to key technical improvements of our computation relative to the latter which opens the door to more efficient small x computations. We also discuss the relation of this work to analogous computations by us for p+A collisions.

        Electron-photon deep inelastic scattering at small x in holographic QCD 24m

        A photon is a fundamental particle, instead of a nonperturbative composite like hadrons. However, an energetic photon can fluctuate into vector mesons in the kinematic region with a small Bjorken variable $x < 0.1$. Particularly at $x < 0.01$, the hadronic contribution to cross sections of the electron-photon deep inelastic scattering dominates, and a photon can be regarded as a hadron rather than a pointlike object. Therefore, effective models are needed for studies of the photon structure in this kinematic region. We present analysis on the photon structure functions at small $x$ in the framework of the holographic QCD, assuming dominance of the Pomeron exchange. The real photon structure functions are expressed as convolution of the Brower-Polchinski-Strassler-Tan (BPST) Pomeron exchange kernel and the known wave functions of the U(1) vector field in the five-dimensional AdS space, in which the adjustable parameters in the BPST kernel have been fixed in previous studies of the nucleon structure functions. The predicted photon structure functions, as confronted with experimental data, provide a clean test of the BPST kernel. The agreement between theoretical predictions and data is demonstrated, which supports applications of holographic QCD to hadronic processes in the nonperturbative region. Our calculations are also consistent with those derived from the parton distribution functions of the photon proposed by Gluck, Reya, and Schienbein, implying realization of the vector meson dominance in the present model setup. Our results presented in this talk will be tested at future linear colliders, e.g., the planned International Linear Collider.

        NNLO QCD predictions for dijet production in diffractive DIS 24m

        Calculations for dijet production in diffractive deep-inelastic scattering (DIS) at next-to-next-to-leading order accuracy (NNLO) are presented. The calculations are based on the antenna subtraction formalism and the hard coefficients are convoluted with currently available PDFs for diffractive scattering (DPDFs).
        The NNLO predictions are compared to a large number of available measurements and different observables. Detailed studies on the DPDF and scale dependencies are presented.

        Search for new physics in CP violation with beauty and charm decays at LHCb 20m

        Precision measurements of CP violating observables in the decays of b and c hadrons are powerful probes to search for physics beyond the Standard Model.
        The most recent results on CP violation in the decay, mixing and interference of both b and c hadrons obtained by the LHCb Collaboration with Run I and years 2015-2016 of Run II are reviewed. In particular world best constraints and world first measurements are provided for CKM elements, unitarity angles and charm parameters.

        B-flavour anomalies in b->sll and b->clnu transitions at LHCb 20m

        The concept of lepton universality, where the muon and tau particles are simply heavier copies of the electron, is a key prediction in the Standard Model (SM). In models beyond the SM, lepton universality can be naturally violated with new physics particles that couple preferentially to the second and third generation leptons. Over the last few years, several hints of lepton universality violation have been seen in both b->c and b->s semileptonic beauty decays. This presentation will review these anomalies and give an outlook for the near future.

Comparison is made to theoretical predictions, including for the observable P’5, for which there has been recent tension between theory and experiment. In addition the study of kinematical correlations in B hadron pair production is also presented.

        Study of electroweak-penguin B decays and other rare B decays at Belle 20m

        Electroweak penguin B decays proceed through one loop diagrams at the lowest order. Since new particles beyond the Standard Model can enter in the loop, these processes are very sensitive to new physics. We report measurements of b → sl+l- decays at Belle. We also report other rare B decays sensitive to New Physics. The analyses are based on the full data set at Y(4S) and Y(5S) resonances at Belle.

        Measurement of the diboson production cross section at 8TeV and 13TeV and limits on anomalous triple gauge couplings with the ATLAS detector 25m

        Measurements of the cross sections of the production of pairs of electroweak gauge bosons at the LHC constitute stringent tests of the electroweak sector of the Standard Model and provide a model-independent means to search for new physics at the TeV scale. The ATLAS collaboration has performed detailed measurements of integrated and differential cross sections of the production of heavy di-boson pairs in fully-leptonic and semi-leptonic final states at centre-of-mass energies of 8 and 13 TeV. The results are compared to predictions at NLO (and NNLO) in pQCD and provide constraints on new physics, by setting limits on anomalous triple gauge couplings.

        WW production at NNLO+PS 20m

        We present predictions for diboson production (with exact decays) that are next-to-next-to-leading order (NNLO) accurate and consistently matched to a parton shower (NNLOPS). The matching is achieved by upgrading the NLO WW+j calculation with MiNLO, in such a way that NLO accuracy is guaranteed for W+W- inclusive observables and by then performing a reweighting of the WWJ-MiNLO events, differential in the W+W- Born variables, to the NNLO results obtained with Matrix.

        Vector boson scattering, triple gauge-boson final states and limits on anomalous quartic gauge couplings with the ATLAS detector 20m

        Measurements of the cross sections of the production of three electroweak gauge bosons and of vector-boson scattering processes at the LHC constitute stringent tests of the electroweak sector of the Standard Model and provide a model-independent means to search for new physics at the TeV scale. The ATLAS collaboration searched for the production of three W bosons or of a W boson and a photon together with a Z or W boson at a center of mass energy of 8 TeV. ATLAS has also searched for the electroweak production of a heavy boson and a photon together with two jets. Evidence has been found for the exclusive production of W boson pairs. All results have been used to constrain anomalous quartic gauge couplings and have been compared to the latest theory predictions.

        The most recent results on the production of single W and Z bosons with two jets at high invariant mass at centre-of-mass energies of 7, 8 and 13 TeV are presented. Integrated and differential cross sections are measured in many different phase space regions with varying degree of sensitivity to the electroweak production in vector boson fusion. The cross section for the electroweak W boson production has been extracted for both integrated and for the first time differential distributions. The results are compared to state-of-the-art theory predictions and are used to constrain anomalous gauge couplings.

        Multiboson production at CMS 25m

        The production of massive vector boson pairs is a key process for the understanding of the non-abelian gauge structure of the standard model and for the comprehension of the electroweak symmetry breaking mechanism. In this presentation, we will report the most recent inclusive and differential measurements of multiboson production with data collected by the CMS. The recent study of the production of vector boson pairs with the presence of two jets in the event will be presented as well. It allows to measure the electroweak production of vector bosons in association with jets, in particular made up through vector boson scattering (VBS) processes.

        Recent Transverse Spin Measurements in pp Collisions with STAR 30m

        The STAR Collaboration at RHIC is exploring the partonic origin of the proton spin with a broad range of measurements in polarized pp collisions. STAR measurements of the transverse single-spin asymmetry, A_N, for W boson production provide the first experimental investigation of the non-universality of the Sivers function. Precise follow-up measurements of A_N for direct photon production, Drell-Yan di-electron production, and W
        boson production are underway that will both provide a definitive test of the non-universality and constrain evolution of transverse-momentum-dependent distributions (TMDs) over a very wide Q^2 range. STAR measurements of interference fragmentation functions and the transverse single-spin dependence of the azimuthal modulation of pions in
        jets provide the first observations of transversity in pp collisions. The results enable tests of universality and factorization-breaking effects for TMDs in hadronic interactions. Additional transverse modulations provide limits on gluon linear polarization and the twist-3 analog of the gluon Sivers distribution. The current status of these analyses and the prospects to extend them in the near future will be discussed.

        Measurement of longitudinal and transverse target polarization dependent azimuthal asymmetries in muon-p SIDIS processes at COMPASS 20m

        COMPASS is a fixed target experiment located at the M2 beamline of the SPS accelerator at CERN. One of the most important objectives of the experiment is the study of the spin structure of the nucleon. Within the QCD parton model approach, the quark structure of the nucleon spin can be parametrized in terms of quark transverse momentum dependent (TMD) parton distribution functions (PDFs) while the hadronization mechanism is described by Fragmentation Functions (FFs). In the experiment, specific convolutions of the TMD PDFs and FFs can be accessed through the measurement of longitudinal and transverse nucleon-spin-dependent azimuthal asymmetries of charged hadrons produced in semi-inclusive deep inelastic lepton-nucleon scattering (SIDIS) processes. Between 2002 and 2011 COMPASS has performed a series of dedicated data-takings using 160-200 GeV/c polarized muons scattering off longitudinally or transversely polarized deuteron ($^6LiD$) and proton ($NH_3$) targets. The whole set of target spin-dependent azimuthal asymmetries present in the SIDIS cross-section has been extracted.
        In this talk recent COMPASS results obtained for proton spin-dependent azimuthal asymmetries will be presented along with former results obtained by other collaborations and relevant theoretical model predictions.

        Probing the transverse single spin asymmetry in the inelastic $J/\Psi$ photoproduction at hadronic colliders 20m

        In this contribution we investigate the transverse single spin asymmetry in the inelastic $J/\Psi$ photoproduction in $p^\uparrow p$ and $p^\uparrow A$ collisions at RHIC energies. At leading order this process probes the gluon Sivers function. We predict large values for the cross sections, which indicates that its experimental analysis is, in principle, feasible. The rapidity dependence of the single spin asymmetry is presented. We obtain that the asymmetry is strongly dependent on the model used for the gluon Sivers function and that it can be probed by the analysis of the $J/\Psi$ production at forward rapidities. Our results indicate that a future experimental analysis of this process can be useful to constrain the gluon Sivers function.

        Suppression of gluon polarization in angular asymmetries 20m

        First we perform a phenomenological analysis of the cos 2φ azimuthal asymmetry in virtual photon plus jet production induced by the linear polarization of gluons in unpolarized pA collisions. Employing a small-x model input distribution, the asymmetry is found to be strongly suppressed under TMD evolution, but still remains sufficiently large to be measurable in the typical kinematical region accessible at RHIC or LHC at moderate photon virtuality, whereas it is expected to be negligible in Z/W-jet pair production at LHC. We also investigate the energy evolution of the dipole type T-odd gluon TMDs inside a transversely polarized hadron, which unify at small x. The preliminary results shows that these TMDs are also suppressed under TMD evolution.

        The complete twist-4 contributions to the SIDIS process $e^- N\to e^- q(jet) X$ at high energies 20m

        The talk will present the complete twist-4 result for the semi-inclusive deeply inelastic scattering $e^- N \to e^-qX$ with polarized electron and proton beams at the tree level of pQCD. The calculations have been carried out using the formulism obtained after collinear expansion where the multiple gluon scattering are taken into account and gauge links are obtained automatically in a systematical way. The results show in particular that there are twist-4 contributions to all the eight twist-2 structure functions for $e^- N \to e^-hX$ that correspond to the eight twist-2 transverse momentum dependent parton distribution functions. Such higher twist effects could be very significant and therefore have important impacts on extracting these three-dimensional parton distribution functions from the asymmetry data on $e^- N \to e^-hX$. The talk will first show the formulism obtained using collinear expansion then present the results for the structure functions and the azimuthal asymmetries. At the end, the talk will present also a discussion of the results obtained and a suggestion of an approximate way for a rough estimation of such higher twist contributions.

        VHEeP: A very high energy electron--proton collider 30m

        Based on current CERN infrastructure, an electron--proton collider is proposed at a center-of-mass energy of about 9 TeV. A 7 TeV LHC bunch is used as the proton driver to create a plasma wakefield which then accelerates electrons to 3 TeV, these then colliding with the other 7 TeV LHC proton beam. Although of very high energy, the collider has a modest projected integrated luminosity of 10-100 inverse pb. For such a collider, with a center-of-mass energy 30 times greater than HERA, parton momentum fractions, x, down to about 10^-8 are accessible for photon virtualities, Q^2, of 1 GeV^2. The energy dependence of hadronic cross sections at high energies, such as the the total photon-proton cross section, which has synergy with cosmic-ray physics, can be measured and QCD and the structure of matter better understood in a region where the effects are completely unknown. Searches at high Q^2 for physics beyond the Standard Model will be possible, in particular the significantly increased sensitivity to the production of leptoquarks.

        Pion and Kaon Structure Functions at EIC 25m

        Pions and kaons are, along with protons and neutrons, the main building blocks of nuclear matter. The distribution of the fundamental constituents, the quarks and gluons, is expected to be different in pions, kaons, and nucleons. However, experimental data are sparse. As a result, there has been persistent doubt about the behavior of the pion's valence quark structure function at large Bjorken-x and virtually nothing is known about the contribution of gluons. The Electron-Ion Collider with an acceptance optimized for forward physics could provide access to structure functions over a larger kinematic region. This would allow for measurements testing if the origin of mass is encoded in the differences of gluons in pions, kaons, and nucleons, and measurements that could serve as a test of assumptions used in the extraction of structure functions. Measurements at an EIC would also allow to explore the effect of gluons at high x. In this talk we will discuss the prospects of such measurements.

        Measurement of photon production cross sections with the ATLAS detector 20m

        The production of prompt isolated photons at hadron colliders provides a stringent test of perturbative QCD and can be used to probe the gluon density function of the proton. The ATLAS collaboration has performed precise measurements of the inclusive production of isolated prompt photons at a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV, differential in both rapidity and the photon transverse momentum. In addition, the integrated and differential cross sections for isolated photon pair production and -most recently for the first time - the tri-photon production at 8 TeV have been measured. The results are compared with state-of-the-art theory predictions at NLO in QCD and with predictions of several MC generators. In particular the results of the tri-photon production highlight interesting discrepancies to advanced theory calculations.

        Studies of photon production in association with jets at the ATLAS detector 20m

        The production of prompt photons in association with jets in proton–proton collisions provides a testing ground for perturbative QCD (pQCD) with a hard colourless probe less affected by hadronisation effects than jet production. The measurements of the angular correlations between the photon and the jets can be used to probe the dynamics of the hard-scattering process. We present here a cross-section measurement using final states with at least one, two or three hadronic jets in addition to an isolated photon, differential in a wide range of kinematic variables describing the photon+jet production dynamic. Colour-coherence effects were investigated in events with a photon accompanied by two jets. Moreover, we present the latest results on the measurement of isolated photons with jets at 13 TeV as well as on the production of photon-pairs in association with jets. We will also present for the first time measurements on the differential cross sections of isolated-photon plus heavy-flavour jet production at 8 TeV. The results are compared to recent theoretical predictions.

        New NLOPS predictions for b-jet production in association with a pair of top quarks at the LHC 15m

        Measurements of $t\bar{t}H$ production in the $H \to b\bar{b}$ channel depend in a critical way on the theoretical uncertainty associated with the irreducible $t\bar{t}+b$-jet background. In this paper, analysing the various topologies that account for b-jet production in association with a $t\bar{t}$ pair, we demonstrate that the process at hand is largely driven by final-state $g \to b\bar{b}$ splittings. We also show that in five-flavour simulations based on $t\bar{t}$+multi-jet merging $b$-jet production is mostly driven by the parton shower, while matrix elements play only a marginal role in the description of $g \to b\bar{b}$ splittings. Based on these observations we advocate the use of NLOPS simulations of $pp \to t\bar{t}b\bar{b}$ in the four-flavour scheme, and we present a new POWHEG generator of this kind. Predictions and uncertainties for $t\bar{t}+b$-jet observables at the 13 TeV LHC are presented both for the case of stable top quarks and with spin-correlated top decays. Besides QCD scale variations we consider also theoretical uncertainties related to the POWHEG matching method and to the parton shower modelling, with emphasis on $g \to b\bar{b}$ splittings. In general, matching and shower uncertainties turn out to be remarkably small. This is confirmed also by a tuned comparison against Sherpa+OpenLoops.

        Simulations of photo-nuclear dijets with PYTHIA 8 and their sensitivity to nuclear PDFs 25m

        In ultra-peripheral heavy-ion collisions the ions encounter with such a large impact parameter that no strong interaction can take place. However, the photons produced by the colliding ion can interact either with the other nucleus or with a photon from the another nucleus. The former corresponds to photoproduction studied earlier in electron-proton collisions at HERA but with a nuclear target. This provides an unique opportunity to study the nuclear modifications of the PDFs with the photo-nuclear processes measured in lead-lead collisions at the LHC. First preliminary results for photo-nuclear dijets were recently published by ATLAS and plenty of more data are expected in near future. In this talk, I will first present our recent implementation of photoproduction processes in PYTHIA 8 general-purpose Monte-Carlo event generator. The resulting simulations are compared to charged-hadron and dijet production data from different HERA experiments and the theoretical uncertainties of the framework are quantified. Then I will discuss how the relevant part of the photon flux from heavy-ions is obtained using equivalent photon approximation and present predictions for photo-nuclear dijet cross section at the LHC. To estimate the potential of this data to further constrain the nuclear PDFs, the expected statistical uncertainty based on LHC luminosity is compared to uncertainties in current nuclear PDF analyses.

        Probing gluon TMDs with quarkonia 25m

        In this talk, I will discuss the relevance of using quarkonium-hadroproduction data in order to study the gluon TMDs in unpolarised protons. I will discuss the case of single $\eta_c$ production as well as that of $J/\psi(\Upsilon)+\gamma$ and $J/\psi$ pairs. In particular, I will discuss our first extraction of $f_1^g$ using the di-$J/\psi$ LHCb data and argue that $h_1^{\perp g}$ can be extracted in the near future with data taken in the CMS and ATLAS acceptances. I will also discuss how the newly introduced matching procedure based on an inverse-error weighting can help connect such studies with computations made in the collinear factorisation.

        Measurement of transverse-spin-dependent azimuthal asymmetries in Drell-Yan process at COMPASS 20m

        The first measurement of transverse-spin-dependent azimuthal
        asymmetries in the pion-induced Drell-Yan (DY) process will be
        presented, which was reported in PRL 119, 112002. We use the CERN SPS
        190  GeV/c pi- beam and a transversely polarized ammonia target.
        Three azimuthal asymmetries giving access to different
        transverse-momentum-dependent (TMD) parton distribution functions
        (PDFs) are extracted using dimuon events with invariant mass between
        4.3  GeV/c2 and 8.5  GeV/c2. Within the experimental uncertainties,
        the observed sign of the Sivers asymmetry is found to be consistent
        with the fundamental prediction of quantum chromodynamics (QCD) that
        the Sivers TMD PDFs extracted from DY have a sign opposite to the one
        extracted from semi-inclusive deep-inelastic scattering (SIDIS) data.
        We present two other asymmetries originating from the pion
        Boer-Mulders TMD PDFs convoluted with either the nucleon transversity
        or pretzelosity TMD PDFs. A recent COMPASS SIDIS measurement was
        obtained at a hard scale comparable to that of these DY results. This
        opens the way for possible tests of fundamental QCD universality
        predictions.

        Transverse Single Spin Asymmetries of charged hadron from p+p and p+Au collisions in PHENIX 20m

        Transverse single-spin asymmetries (TSSA) of light hadron production from $p^{\uparrow}+p$ collisions provide valuable information on the spin structure of the nucleon. TSSA in the process $p^\uparrow + p \rightarrow h+X$ has been described in terms of twist-3 spin-dependent three-parton correlation functions, or twist-3 fragmentation functions in the QCD collinear factorization approach. In addition, studying the TSSA for inclusive hadron production in $p^{\uparrow}+A$ collisions can give new insight on the underlying mechanism because different contributions to the TSSA are affected differently by the saturation effect in large nuclei. We will report a recent study on the TSSA of charged hadron production at forward and backward ($1.4<|\eta|<2.4$) rapidity over the the transverse momentum range of $1.25

        Status of JLEIC and its interaction region design 18m

        An Electron Ion Collider (EIC) has been identified in the Nuclear Physics Long Range Plan as the highest-priority facility for new construction. This talk presents an overview and status of the Jefferson Lab design of an EIC (JLEIC). It features frequent collisions of small electron and ion bunches providing a luminosity of $10^{33}$-$10^{34}$ cm$^{-1}$s$^{-1}$ in a broad range of the center-of-mass energy. The small size of ion bunches is maintained against intra-beam scattering by a novel high-energy bunched beam electron cooling system. The figure-8 shape of the electron and all ion rings allows for preservation and ease of manipulation of the electron polarization and the spin of any ion species (p, d, $^3$He, Li, etc.). The interaction region is designed to accommodate a full-acceptance detector with complete coverage and geometry tagging in the forward and ultra-forward directions. The talk highlights recent progress on the JLEIC accelerator design with an emphasis on the integrated interaction region design.

        TOPSiDE: A detector concept for the EIC 18m

        We report on a detector concept, TOPSiDE, being developed for the EIC
        Electron-Ion Collider. TOPSiDE aims a the detection and identification
        of all particles created in electron-proton/ion collisions at the EIC
        while achieving the best possible momentum/energy resolution. The
        measurement of hadronic jets exploits the advantages offered by Particle
        Flow Algorithms (PFAs), which in turn require imaging calorimetry. Particle
        identification is achieved through time-of-flight measurements in the tracker
        and the electromagnetic calorimeter, necessitating the application of
        ultra-fast silicon sensors. In the forward (hadron) direction the particles
        are identified with a Cerenkov detector covering forward angles up to 10
        degrees and a dipole or toroidal magnet for momentum measurement. The talk
        presents the detector concept, the status of its simulation software, first

        NNPDF3.1: Parton distributions from high-precision collider data 20m

        We present a new set of parton distributions, NNPDF3.1, which updates NNPDF3.0, the first global set of PDFs determined using a methodology validated by a closure test. The update is motivated by recent progress in methodology and available data, and involves both. On the methodological side, we now parametrize and determine the charm PDF alongside the light quarks and gluon ones, thereby increasing from seven to eight the number of independent PDFs. On the data side, we now include the D0 electron and muon W asymmetries from the final Tevatron dataset, the complete LHCb measurements of W and Z production in the forward region at 7 and 8 TeV, and new ATLAS and CMS measurements of inclusive jet and electroweak boson production. We also include for the first time top-quark pair differential distributions and the transverse momentum of the Z bosons from ATLAS and CMS. We investigate the impact of parametrizing charm and provide evidence that the accuracy and stability of the PDFs are thereby improved. We study the impact of the new data by producing a variety of determinations based on reduced datasets. We find that both improvements have a significant impact on the PDFs, with some substantial reductions in uncertainties, but with the new PDFs generally in agreement with the previous set at the one sigma level. The most significant changes are seen in the light-quark flavor separation, and in increased precision in the determination of the gluon. We explore the implications of NNPDF3.1 for LHC phenomenology at Run II, compare with recent LHC measurements at 13 TeV, provide updated predictions for Higgs production cross-sections and discuss the strangeness and charm content of the proton in light of our improved dataset and methodology. The NNPDF3.1 PDFs are delivered for the first time both as Hessian sets, and as optimized Monte Carlo sets with a compressed number of replicas.

Measurements of cross sections of jet and to-quark pair production are in particular sensitive to the gluon distribution in the proton and the strong coupling, while the electroweak boson production - inclusive or associated with charm or beauty quarks give insight into the flavour separation of the proton sea and give hints to the treatment of heavy quarks in PDF-related studies.

        Measurements of the underlying-event properties and hadron production with the ATLAS detector 24m

        A correct modelling of the underlying event in proton-proton collisions is important for the proper simulation of kinematic distributions of high-energy collisions. The ATLAS collaboration extended previous studies at 7 TeV with a leading track or jet or Z boson by a new study at 13 TeV, measuring the number and transverse-momentum sum of charged particles as a function of pseudorapidity and azimuthal angle in dependence of the reconstructed leading track. These measurements are sensitive to the underlying-event as well as the onset of hard emissions. The results are compared to predictions of several MC generators. Further studies shed light on the correlated hadron production, which are an important source of information about the early stages of hadron formation, not yet understood from first principles. In this presentation, we will discuss Bose-Einstein correlations measured with the ATLAS detector along with an analysis of the momentum difference between charged hadrons in high–energy proton–proton collisions. The latter allows the investigation of observables sensitive to the predictions of the quantized string model.

The contribution of hard double parton scattering to the production of four-jet events has been extracted using an artificial neural network. The assumption made was that hard double parton scattering can be represented by a random combination of dijet events. In addition, a sample enriched with double parton scattering events was extracted and several characteristics of these events were studied.

However one high precision result that currently significantly differs from the world average are results from event shapes at electron positron colliders. One possible source for the difference in these results could be the degeneracy between the fit of the strong coupling constant and non-perturbative parameter.

Such observables are significant not only for probing a new regime of QCD at a hadron collider, but also for improving the understanding of jet substructure properties that are used in many studies at the Large Hadron Collider. In this talk, we discuss first measurement of jet substructure quantities at a hadron collider, calculated at next-to-next-to-leading-logarithm accuracy. The soft drop mass is measured in dijet events with the ATLAS detector at 13 TeV, unfolded to particle-level and compared to Monte Carlo simulations.

        The STAR Cold QCD Physics Program after 2020 30m

        The STAR experiment is planning to upgrade the forward rapidity region (2.5 < eta < 4.5) to enable novel measurements in p+p, p+A and A+A collisions. The upgrade is motivated by exploration of cold QCD physics in the very high and low regions of Bjorken x. The current design envisions a Calorimeter System (FCS) that integrates parts of the refurbished PHENIX sampling ECal and a hadronic calorimeter (sandwich iron scintillator plates). In addition to the FCS, a Forward Tracking System (FTS) is also proposed to discriminate the hadron charge sign in p+p and p+A collisions at high momenta p<80 GeV/c. The design combines three Silicon mini-strip disks and four Small-Strip Thin Gap Chamber (sTGC) wheels similar to the ATLAS muon detector upgrade. In addition, STAR's excellent capabilities at midrapidity are upgraded to moderate forward kinematics (|eta| < 1.7) for the Beam Energy Scan (phase II) and beyond. The full set of upgrades will enable key physics opportunities in three broad areas of interest: the dynamics of low and high x partons in cold nuclear matter (CNM);Â modification of fragmentation and hadronization of partons through interactions within CNM; experiments to study the 2+1d momentum and spatial structure of protons and nuclei. These measurements will provide critical new insights into the QCD structure of nucleons and nuclei in the near term, as well as the high
        precision data that will be essential to enable rigorous universality tests when combined with future results from the EIC.

        Studies of 3D PDFs with CLAS12 30m

        The quark-gluon dynamics manifests itself in a set of non-perturbative functions describing all possible spin-spin and spin-orbit correlations. The Transverse Momentum Dependent parton distributions (TMDs) and Generalized Parton Distributions (GPDs)  carry information not only on the longitudinal but also on the transverse momentum and position of partons, providing rich and direct information on the orbital motion of quarks. Studies of the 3D PDFs are currently driving the upgrades of several existing facilities (JLab, COMPASS and RHIC), and the design and construction of new facilities worldwide (EIC, FAIR, and JPARC).
        Although the interest in GPDs and TMD PDFs has grown enormously, we are still in need of fresh theoretical and phenomenological ideas.

        The main remaining challenges are extractions of actual 3D PDFs from different spin and azimuthal angle dependent distributions in a reliable and model independent way. In this talk, we present an overview of current status and future measurements of the 3D structure of the nucleon using exclusive and semi-inclusive production of photons and hadrons with the CLAS12 detector at Jefferson Lab.

        The TMD Program at JLab 30m

        As a part of the general nucleon imaging effort, there have been many efforts to access the transverse momentum dependent parton distributions (TMDs) by using the semi-inclusive deep inelastic scatterings (SIDIS) processes. The recently upgraded Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility (CEBAF) at Jefferson Lab (JLab) provides golden opportunities to study them in valence quark region. The TMDs describe the three-dimensional, spin-correlated distributions of quarks and gluons in the nucleon in momentum space. The corresponding SIDIS measurements require high intensity and polarization with large kinematic coverage which will be provided by several different detectors. We will highlight some of the SIDIS results from the 6 GeV era and present an overview of the planned JLab TMD program in the 12 GeV era.

        Measuring gluon Sivers function at a future Electron-Ion Collider 30m

        In this work, we present a systematic study on the feasibility of probing the largely unexplored gluon Sivers function (GSF) based on the open charm production, charged dihadron and dijet method at a future high energy, high luminosity Electron-Ion Collider (EIC). Sivers function describes the anisotropy of parton distributions inside a transversely polarized nucleon in the momentum space and provides us a complete picture of the 2+1D structure of the nucleons. It is proposed that the GSF can be studied through the single spin asymmetry (SSA) measurement in the photongluon fusion channel with electron proton collisions at the EIC. Using a well tuned Monte Carlo model for deep inelastic scatterings, we estimate the possible constraints of the gluon Sivers effect one can draw from the future EIC data. Comparisons of all the possible measurements further illustrate that the dijet method is the most promising way to demonstrate the presence of GSF and pin down its evolution effect.

        Recent Spin Structure Function Measurements from CLAS at Jefferson Laboratory 25m

        The polarized electron accelerator at Jefferson Laboratory (JLab) in Newport News, Virginia, USA yields a robust program for the study of the spin physics of the nucleon. The CLAS detector and longitudinally polarized target in Hall-B at JLab were employed in multiple measurements of spin-structure functions for the proton and neutron in the resonance and DIS regions at beam energies of up to 6 GeV. Recently published results from the EG1 experiment present extensive measurements of the $g_1$ and $g_2$ structure functions for the proton over a wide kinematic range (0.05 $< Q^2 <$ $ 5$ GeV$^2$ and 1.08 $< W < $ 3 GeV). These data, together with data from the related EG4 and EG1-DVCS experiments in Hall-B, help constrain global models of structure functions, virtual photon asymmetries, and parton helicity distributions, and provide more precise values of higher-twist matrix elements in the framework of the Operator Product Expansion.

        Recent STAR Results on the Measurement of the Unpolarized and Polarized Light Quark Flavor Structure of W-Boson Production at RHIC at BNL 25m

        The STAR experiment at the Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collider at Brookhaven National
        Laboratory is carrying out a spin physics program in high-energy polarized proton collisions
        to gain a deeper insight into the spin structure and
        dynamics of the proton.

        The collision of polarized protons at $\sqrt{s}=510\,$GeV opens a new era of spin-flavor
        structure measurements from $W^{+}/W^{-}$ boson production through a measurement of the longitudinal single-spin asymmetry, $A_{L}$. In addition, the measurement of the cross-section ratio of $W^{+}/W^{-}$ boson production provides an independent way to probe the ratio of unpolarized $\bar{d}$ and $\bar{u}$ quark distribution functions. $W^{-(+)}$ bosons are produced in $\bar{u}+d\,(\bar{d}+u)$ collisions and can be detected through their leptonic decays, $e^{-}+\bar{\nu}_{e}\;(e^{+}+\nu_{e})$, where only the respective charged lepton is measured. The discrimination of $\bar{u}+d\;(\bar{d}+u)$ quark combinations requires distinguishing between high $p_{T}$ $e^{-(+)}$ through their opposite charge sign, which in turn requires precise tracking information.

        The main STAR detector sub-systems used in this measurement are the Time Projection Chamber (TPC) and the Barrel and Endcap Electromagnetic Calorimeters (BEMC, EEMC). The TPC provides tracking inside an axial magnetic field of $0.5\,$T for a pseudorapidity range of $|\eta|<1.3$. The BEMC and EEMC provide full azimuthal coverage for $|\eta|<1$ and $1.09<\eta<2$, respectively. This detector acceptance range measuring scattered $e^{-(+)}$ from $W^{-(+)}$ boson decays in polarized proton collisions at $\sqrt{s}=510\,$GeV allows to probe a kinematic range of roughly $0.05

        The status and recent STAR results will be presented on the measurement of $W^{+}/W^{-}$ longitudinal single-spin asymmetry and the cross-section ratio based on data samples taken in 2011, 2012 and 2013. These results are expected to provide important constraints through a global analysis on the understanding of $\bar{d}$ and $\bar{u}$ quark distribution functions.

        First extraction of transversity from electron-proton and proton-proton data 25m

        We present the first extraction of the transversity distribution in the framework of collinear factorization based on the global analysis of pion-pair production in deep-inelastic scattering off transversely polarized targets and in proton-proton collisions with one transversely polarized proton. The extraction relies on the knowledge of dihadron fragmentation functions, which are taken from the analysis of electron-positron annihilation data. For the first time, the chiral-odd transversity is extracted from a global analysis similar to what is usually done for the chiral-even spin averaged and helicity distributions. The knowledge of transversity is important for detecting possible signals of new physics in high-precision low-energy experiments.

        Forward di-jets in p+A collisions in the ITMD framework 24m

        We improve the state-of-the-art description of the disappearance of the away-side peak in forward pA collisions at Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) energies in the framework of the Color Glass Condensate (CGC).
        Using the recently proposed improved transverse momentum dependent (ITMD) factorization formula for two-particle production in the back-to-back limit, we derive a parameter-free cross section for the production of two hadrons in dilute-dense collisions, in which the TMD gluon distributions describing the saturated targets are obtained by solving the Balitsky-Kovchegov equation with running coupling corrections.
        The resulting cross section provides a good description of the disappearance of the away-side peak in d+Au collisions observed in current RHIC data, although non-CGC effects missing in our calculation prevent us from capturing the overall shape of the di-hadron yield as we move away from $\Delta\phi = \pi$.
        We predict the away-side peak of upcoming p+Au data at $\sqrt{𝑠}$ = 200 𝐺𝑒𝑉 to be systematically suppressed by a factor 2 with respect to p+p.
        We propose to study the rapidity dependence of the away-side peak suppression as an auxiliary strong proof of gluon saturation in experimental data.

        Multi particle production in proton-nucleus collisions 24m

        Using the formalism of the light-cone wave function in perturbative QCD together with the hybrid factorization, we compute the cross-section for three particle production at forward rapidities in proton-nucleus collisions. In this picture, the three produced partons — a quark accompanied by a gluon pair, or two quarks plus one antiquark — are all generated via two successive splittings of a quark from the incoming proton, that was originally collinear with the latter. The three partons are put on-shell by their scattering off the nuclear target, described as Lorentz-contracted “shockwave”. We explicitly compute the three-parton Fock space components of the light-cone wave function of the incoming quark and also the “production” state, which describes the scattering between this dressed quark state and the shockwave for the purposes of computing particle production. This “production” state is also an ingredient for other interesting calculations, like the next-to-leading order correction to the cross-section for the production of a pair of jets.

        TMD splitting functions in kT factorization 24m

        We calculate the transverse momentum dependent gluon-to-gluon splitting function within kT-factorization, generalizing the framework employed in the calculation of the quark splitting functions in [1205.1759, 1511.08439, 1607.01507] and demonstrate at the same time the consistency of the extended formalism with previous results. While existing versions of kT factorized evolution equations contain already a gluon-to-gluon splitting function i.e. the leading order BFKL kernel or the CCFM kernel, the obtained splitting function has the important property that it reduces both to the leading order BFKL kernel in the high energy limit, to the DGLAP gluon-to-gluon splitting function in the collinear limit as well as to the CCFM kernel in the soft limit. At the same time we demonstrate that this splitting kernel can be obtained from a direct calculation of the QCD Feynman diagrams, based on a combined implementation of the Curci-Furmanski-Petronzio formalism for the calculation of the collinear splitting functions and the framework of high energy factorization.

        $\gamma \to \rho^0$ impact factor in QCD: light-cone sum rule calculation 24m

        We discuss the \gamma \to \rho^0 impact factor, i.e., the transition amplitude of a photon to a neutral vector meson \rho^0, where the transition is mediated by the two t-channel gluons. The impact factor is a building block in the QCD descriptions of high-energy exclusive processes like $\gamma p \to V p$, and $\gamma\gamma \to V V$, with $V = \rho^0, \omega, \phi$, …. In the framework of QCD factorization, the impact factor is expressed as a convolution of the partonic amplitude, $\gamma g \to q\bar{q} g$, in perturbation theory and the quark-antiquark light-cone distribution amplitudes for the vector meson V. The corresponding factorization formula has been successfully derived for the case of the longitudinal polarization of V. For the transverse polarization of V, however, the corresponding formula is associated with the higher twist (twist-three) contributions and the factorization is known to break down due to infrared divergences which manifest themselves as endpoint singularities arising in the convolution integral. This fact indicates that the impact factor for the transversely polarized vector meson is dominated by the non-factorizable’’ soft contributions. We study the $\gamma \to \rho^0$ impact factor constructing the light-cone QCD sum rules for the corresponding amplitudes, which allow us to estimate the relevant soft contributions in a largely model-independent way, with the use of dispersion relations and quark-hadron duality. We are able to obtain the finite result for the impact factor with the transversely polarized $\rho^0$ meson,$\rho^0_T$’’, as well as for $\rho^0_L$ with the longitudinal polarization. We compare our results with the approach based on the vector meson dominance model associated with the pomeron exchange. As an application, we calculate the cross sections for $\rho^0\rho^0$ production in two-photon collisions, in particular, the cross sections for $\gamma\gamma \to \rho^0_L\rho^0_T$ with the different polarizations in the forward productions of the $\rho^0$ mesons, which may be measured in Belle II experiment.

Longstanding numerical issues are overcome by performing the resummation directly in momentum space within Soft Collinear Effective Theory (SCET). We present numerical results for the LHC with and without the joint resummation for different choices of jet radii and observe that the resummation leads to crucial improvements in the description of the data.

The measurements have been performed differentially in jet rapidity and transverse momentum. The collaboration also presents a measurement of the di-jet cross section at a center-of-mass energy of 13TeV as a function of the di-jet mass and rapidity-difference. The results have been compared with state-of-the-art theory predictions at NLO in pQCD, interfaced with different parton distribution functions. Special focus is drawn on the correlation models of the associated systematic uncertainties and the interpretation of the chi2-values resulting from theory comparisons.

        Di-jets the Path to the (un)polarized Partonic Photon Structure at an EIC 18m

        In electron-proton collisions, the incoming electron is coupled directly to a parton of the proton with the exchange of a virtual photon, which has properties close to a real photon when the transfer momentum is small. In QCD, the exchanged physical photon can be approximated as a superposition of the bare photon state (direct process) and the hadronic photon state (resolved process). We discuss how the measurement of di-jets can be utilized to separate these two types of processes. Measuring di-jets in quasi-real photoproduction events, one can effectively access the underlying parton structure of the exchanged photons.
        The unpolarized photon PDFs can be extracted with high precision from the di-jet cross section. It will be shown that the polarized PDFs for photons can for the first time be extracted by measuring the double spin asymmetry as function of x_{\gamma}. A tagging method is used to probe the flavor of the parton content experimentally. In addition, we will discuss the effects of the underlying event on these measurements.

        A space-time analysis of semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering on nuclei 18m

        A new analysis of published experimental data from the HERMES experiment has been performed. This analysis extracts new information on the space-time properties of color propagation through fitting to a geometric model of the interaction with a realistic nuclear density distribution. Our approach uses a simultaneous fit to the transverse momentum broadening observable and the hadronic multiplicity ratio; the simultaneous fit to two different observables strongly constrains the outcome. We extract the color lifetime, or production time, for the first time. We also extract estimates for the $\hat q$ transport coefficient characterizing the strength of the interaction between the quark and the cold nuclear medium transverse to the direction of the quark. With a three-parameter model we obtain satisfactory fits to the data for the kinematic conditions approximately corresponding to the current fragmentation region. Quark energy loss was also parametrized using a 4-parameter variant of the model, and it was found not to play a significant role in describing the data. We note the important impact of the functional form of the distribution of production lengths on present and future data. Using simple kinematic arguments, we use these results to predict the color lifetime for typical kinematic conditions for 5 GeV measurements at Jefferson lab, for 11 GeV beam at the upgraded Jefferson Lab, and at the energies of the future Electron-Ion Collider.

        Next-generation neutron structure measurements with spectator tagging at EIC 18m

        DIS on the deuteron with detection of a proton in the nuclear fragmentation region ("spectator tagging") represents a unique method for extracting the neutron structure functions and their spin dependence. The measured proton recoil momentum (~ few 100 MeV in the deuteron rest frame) controls the nuclear configuration during the DIS process and allows one to eliminate nuclear binding effects by extrapolating to the on-shell point (free neutron). Such measurements could be performed at a future Electron-Ion Collider (EIC) with suitable forward detectors. We report about recent progress in the theory and simulation of neutron structure measurements with spectator tagging at EIC. This includes (a) development of a theoretical model of nuclear final-state interactions in spectator tagging at intermediate x (~0.1-0.5), caused by the exposure of the spectator nucleon to slow hadrons produced in the DIS process on the active nucleon [arXiv:1706.02244]; (b) calculation of the proton recoil momentum distribution, as determined by initial-state deuteron structure (S and D-waves) and final-state interactions; (c) simulations of recoil momentum measurements and neutron structure extraction at EIC under realistic conditions (beam momentum spread, resolution of forward detectors).

        Investigating the dominant regions of the phase space associated with $c\bar{c}$ production relevant for the prompt atmospheric neutrino flux 20m

        A detailed mapping of the dominant kinematical domains contributing to the prompt atmospheric neutrino flux at high neutrino energies is presented by studying their sensitivity to the cuts on several kinematical variables crucial for charm production in cosmic ray scattering in the atmosphere. This includes the maximal center-of-mass energy for proton-proton scattering, the longitudinal momentum fractions of partons in the projectile (cosmic ray) and target (nucleus of the atmosphere), the Feynman $x_F$ variable, and the transverse momentum of charm quark/antiquark. We find that the production of neutrinos with energies larger than $E_{\nu} > 10^7$  GeV is particularly sensitive to the c.m. energies larger than the ones at the LHC and to the longitudinal momentum fractions in the projectile $10^{-8} < x <1 0^{−5}$. We also analyze the characteristic theoretical uncertainties in the charm production cross section coming from its QCD modeling. The precision data on the prompt atmospheric neutrino flux can efficiently constrain the mechanism of heavy quark production and underlying QCD dynamics in kinematical ranges beyond the reach of the current collider measurements.

        Recent experimental data of the production of $J/\psi$+vector boson or quarkonium pairs at the LHC and Tevatron suggest the relevance of double parton scattering (DPS).
        In this talk, we will discuss the single parton scattering (SPS) contribution of the $J/\psi+Z$, $J/\psi+W$, and $J/\psi+J/\psi$ productions in hadron collision.
        By revisiting the computation of the SPS contribution to $J/\psi+Z$ and $J/\psi+W$ production, we will demonstrate that the ATLAS data in fact show evidence for DPS.

        Gluon shadowing and LHC heavy-flavour data 20m

        We use for the first time experimental data for the inclusive heavy quark (D0, J/Psi, B->J/Psi and Y(1S) mesons) production in proton-lead collisions at the LHC in order to improve our knowledge of the gluon momentum distribution inside heavy nuclei. We observe that the nuclear effects encoded in both most recent global fits of nuclear parton densities at next-to-leading order (nCTEQ15 and EPPS16) provide a good overall description of the LHC data. We interpret this as a hint that these effects are the dominant ones. In turn, we perform a Bayesian reweighting analysis for each particle data sample which show that each of the existing heavy quark(onium) data clearly point (with a statistical significance ranging from 7 to 11 sigma) to a shadowed gluon distribution at small x in the lead. Our analysis also corroborates the existence of gluon antishadowing. Overall, the inclusion of such heavy-flavour data in a global fit would significantly reduce the uncertainty on the gluon density down to $x \simeq 5*10^{-6}$ while keeping an agreement with the other data of the global fits. Our study accounts for the factorisation scale uncertainties which become the largest for the charm(onium) sector.

        PDF Flavor Determination and the nCTEQ15 PDFs 20m

        We use nCTEQ15 nPDFs with uncertainties to identify measurements which
        have a potential impact on nuclear corrections and flavor
        differentiation. In particular, recent LHC W/Z vector boson production
        data in proton-lead and lead-lead collisions are quite sensitive to
        heavier flavors (especially the strange PDF). This complements the
        information from neutrino-DIS data. As the proton flavor determination
        is dependent on nuclear corrections (from heavy target DIS, for
        example), this information can also help improve proton PDFs.

        Impact of CMS 5.02 TeV dijet measurements on gluon PDFs 20m

        We discuss the implications of the (preliminary) CMS dijet data from 5.02 TeV pp and pPb collisions for gluon PDFs of the proton and nuclei. The preliminary pp data show a discrepancy with NLO predictions using CT14 and MMHT14 PDFs. We find that this difference cannot be accommodated with the associated scale uncertainties and debate the possible changes needed in the gluon PDFs. A similar discrepancy is found between the CMS pPb data and NLO predictions e.g. with EPPS16 nuclear modifications imposed on CT14 proton PDFs. When a nuclear modification ratio of the pp and pPb data is constructed, the uncertainties in the scale choices and in proton PDFs effectively cancel and a good agreement between the data and EPPS16 is found, except in some bins at backward rapidities corresponding to large x of the nucleus. To assess the impact of these data on EPPS16 nuclear PDFs, we use a non-quadratic extension of the Hessian reweighting method. A significant reduction in EPPS16 uncertainties is obtained with the fit supporting strong nuclear shadowing and valence-like antishadowing for gluons. We also indicate the possible changes needed in the EPPS16 parametrization at large x.

        Measurements of Nucleon Structure via Proton-Induced Drell-Yan Process at FNAL SeaQuest 20m

        SeaQuest at FNAL is a fixed-target experiment to measure the Drell-Yan process in $p+p$ and $p+A$, using the 120-GeV proton beam and targets of liquid hydrogen, liquid deuterium, carbon, iron and tungsten. During the course of operations, completed in July 2017, it recorded data from $1.4\times 10^{18}$ protons on the various targets.

        SeaQuest aims at precisely measuring the flavor asymmetry of light-antiquark distributions ($\bar{d}(x)/\bar{u}(x)$) at large $x$ in the nucleon. It also measures the angular distribution of the Drell-Yan process in $p+p$ and $p+d$ in order to investigate the Lam-Tung relation and further the Boer-Mulders distribution function. It also utilizes the Drell-Yan process in $p+A$ for measuring nuclear effects, including the nuclear dependence of sea quark distributions and the partonic energy loss in cold nuclear matter.

        In this talk, the latest updates on the measurements and their impact on understanding of nuclear and hadronic structure will be presented.

        Measurements of the production of jets in association with a W or Z boson with the ATLAS detector 25m

        The production of jets in association with vector bosons is an important process to study QCD in a multi-scale environment. The ATLAS collaboration has performed measurements of vector boson+jets cross sections, differential in several kinematic variables, in proton-proton collision data taken at center-of-mass energies of 8TeV and 13TeV. The measurements are compared to state-of-the art theory predictions and can be used to constrain the gluon PDF. In data collected at 8TeV, the collaboration has measured the production of W boson+jets with a large transverse momentum of the leading jet, which enriches the collinear production of the gauge boson and a jet. The measurements are compared to state-of-the-art QCD calculations and Monte Carlo simulations.

        Quarkonium production in pp and p-Pb collisions with ALICE at the LHC 20m

        Quarkonium production at LHC energies proceeds mainly via gluon fusion on relatively short timescales. The measurement of quarkonium cross sections and kinematical distributions in pp collisions allows one to test available production models. The measurement of such observables in p-Pb collisions provides access to the nuclear modifications of parton distribution functions and to other so-called cold nuclear matter effects. For both colliding systems, the study of quarkonium production as a function of the charged-particle multiplicity provides information on the interplay between the hard and soft sector of QCD.

        The inclusive production of charmonium and bottomonium is measured by ALICE down to zero transverse momentum in the forward rapidity region (2.5 < y < 4.0). Charmonium production is also measured down to zero transverse momentum at mid-rapidity (|y| < 0.9), where the non-prompt contribution from beauty-hadron decays can be separated.

        The ALICE results on quarkonia in pp and p-Pb collisions will be presented for a wide range of centre-of-mass energies, and compared to theoretical models.

        Recent STAR Measurements to Constrain the Polarized Gluon Distribution Function of the Proton 30m

        The STAR experiment has been studying the spin structure of the proton, using the unique high-energy polarized proton collider, the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC). The kinematic coverage at STAR allows accessing gluons because quark-gluon and gluon-gluon scatterings dominate particle production at low and medium transverse momentum. The polarized gluon distribution function can be constrained by measuring the longitudinal double-spin asymmetry ($A_{LL}$) of jet production and neutral pions. Global QCD analyses of polarized parton distribution functions, which include the 2009 $A_{LL}$ STAR results for inclusive jet production at $\sqrt{s}=200\,GeV$, provide evidence of a non-zero gluon polarization in the measured range of partonic momentum fraction $x > 0.05$. We present the status of the latest measurements of $A_{LL}$ at STAR, for inclusive jet and dijet production at $\sqrt{s}=510\,GeV$ and $200\,GeV$ collected in 2013 and 2015 respectively, both at mid-rapidity ($|\eta|<0.9$). The large data sample taken during these years will improve the precision of our knowledge about the proton spin structure while the increased center of mass energy allows probing the polarized gluon distribution function at smaller partonic momentum fraction. Furthermore, we present measurements of $A_{LL}$ for neutral pions at forward rapidity ($2.65<\eta<3.9$) collected during 2012 and 2013 that also allow reaching lower partonic momentum fraction. We compare these measurements with the latest global analyses.

        Inclusive Jet Measurements in Longitudinally Polarized Proton-Proton Collisions at STAR 20m

        Jet production in high energy proton-proton ($pp$) collisions is dominated by hard QCD scatterings such as gluon-gluon ($gg$) and quark-gluon ($qg$) scatterings, and therefore an effective tool to probe the internal distribution of gluons in the proton. The STAR Collaboration at Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) is using longitudinally polarized $pp$ collisions at center of mass energies, $\sqrt{s} = $ 200 and 510 GeV, to study the production cross-section and double helicity spin asymmetry, $A_{LL}$, of inclusive jet and di-jet productions. The inclusive jet and di-jet cross-section measurements by STAR at $\sqrt{s} = $ 200 GeV showed the jet cross-section is consistent with next-to-leading-order perturbative QCD calculations after underlying event and hadronic corrections. The STAR 2009 inclusive jet $A_{LL}$ measurement in mid-pseudo-rapidity range, $|\eta| < $ 1.0, at $\sqrt{s} = $ 200 GeV showed the first experimental evidence of an non-zero gluon polarization for Bjorken-$x$, $x > 0.05$. The inclusive jet $A_{LL}$ measurements at $\sqrt{s} = $ 510 GeV allow to explore the gluon polarization at smaller $x \sim 0.02$. In this talk, the inclusive jet $A_{LL}$ and cross-section measurements at $\sqrt{s} =$ 510 GeV, the techniques used in the jet analysis including consideration of underlying event effects, and future perspectives related to jet measurements at STAR will be presented.

        Longitudinal Double Spin Asymmetry in Jets in $\surd$s = 510 polarized p+p 20m

        The longitudinal double-spin asymmetry $A_{LL}$ in spin-polarized $p+p$ collisions provides insight into the gluon contribution to the proton's spin by accessing the gluon helicity distribution $\Delta$g. Prior RHIC 200 GeV measurements show non-zero asymmetries and hence indicate a nonzero contribution of gluon helicity to the proton spin $\Delta$G for the Bjorken-$x$ range $x > 0.05$ in the recent NLO analyses. The 510 GeV PHENIX $\pi_{0}$ and STAR jet data confirms the non-zero asymmetries and extends constraints on $\Delta$G to lower $x$. A measurement of the jet $A_{LL}$ at $\surd$s = 510 GeV in PHENIX will provide an important cross-check. In this talk, I will detail the jet reconstruction techniques tuned for the PHENIX detector and present the status of the measured jet cross section and $A_{LL}$.

        A Summary of the EIC Detector R&D Program 30m

        The Electron-Ion Collider (EIC) is the next-generation U.S.-based facility to study Quantum Chromodynamics by probing the dynamics of gluons and sea quarks with comprehensive and systematic measurements of high precision. The experimental program of the EIC is, thus, diverse, covering a broad range of studies from mapping the spatial, momentum, spin, and flavor distributions of gluons and sea quarks in the nucleon to exploring gluon saturation and gluon distributions in nuclei. To carry out this program, the use of different combinations of both beam energy and particle species, wide center-of-mass energy range, measurements of various processes, such as inclusive and semi-inclusive deep-inelastic scattering as well as exclusive elastic and inelastic scattering, and detection of various leptons, mesons, and baryons in the final state, is necessary. The broad experimental scope places challenging and unique requirements on detector capabilities. To name a few, excellent particle identification (PID) over a wide momentum range and full acceptance are a must. The objective of the current generic EIC Detector R&D Program is to develop detector concepts and technologies that are suitable to carry out the EIC scientific program and can operate in the EIC environment. In this talk we will present key aspects of the R&D program, such as calorimetry, PID, and tracking, and discuss the current status of advancing related detector technologies.

        Geometry tagging for heavy ions at JLEIC 18m

        Geometry tagging is an experimental analysis technique for selecting event samples where we can, on a statistical basis, control the geometry of the collision in order to make more incisive physics measurements. This technique has been heavily exploited in heavy ion (AA) collisions at RHIC and the LHC, and played an essential role in the discovery and detailed characterization of the quark gluon plasma, but it has seen only very limited use to date in deep-inelastic scattering. Several physics measurements at the EIC would benefit significantly from the use of this technique, including studies of gluon anti-shadowing, studies of parton propagation, attenuation and hadronization in the nucleus, and ultimately the search for parton saturation. Using geometry tagging, we can create an event sample in eAu collisions with a saturation scale or an average path length equivalent to a minimum bias nucleus of size A=600-800. The JLEIC full-acceptance detector, with full acceptance for forward-going neutrons, protons and nuclear fragments and a high data-taking rate should be ideally suited to such geometry tagging. We improve, tune, and apply existing modeling codes, BeAGLE, Sartre, and GEMC, and detector descriptions to study this physics.

Reduced cross sections for beauty and charm production are obtained in the kinematic range of photon virtuality $2.5\le Q^2 \le 2000$ GeV$^2$ and Bjorken scaling variable $3 \times 10^{−5}\le x_{Bj} \le 5 \times 10^{−2}$.

        rho^0 photoproduction and the Q^2 evolution of the shape of gold nuclei 24m

        Coherent photoproduction of vector mesons is sensitive to the shape of the target nucleus, as probed at Q^2 ~ (M_V/2)^2. Previously STAR presented a high-statistics measurement of d\sigma/dt for rho^0 photoproduction in ultra-peripheral Au+Au collisions, and made a two-dimensional Fourier-Bessel (Hanckel) transformation to give the distribution of targets in the nucleus. Here, we study the Q^2 evolution of d\sigma/dt and the target distribution by dividing the rho^0 signal into three different mass bins, to see how d\sigma/dt evolves with Q^2, and see the effect on the target distribution. With increasing Q^2, we expect to see a decrease in multiple interactions, which should emphasize the interior of the nucleus cmpared to measurements at lower Q^2.

        Energy dependence of exclusive J/Psi photoproduction in p-Pb interactions at ALICE 24m

        The electromagnetic field of a fast moving lead ion at the LHC is an intense source of quasi-real photons. This makes it possible to study J/Psi exclusive photoproduction off protons in p-Pb collisions at the LHC. This process is sensitive to the gluon content of the target. Measuring the scattering angle of the produced vector meson one can compute the centre-of-mass energy (W) of the photon-proton scattering.

        Using Run1 data, ALICE has measured the exclusive J/Psi photoproduction cross section in a wide range of scattering angles. In this contribution, we present for the first time measurements of the cross section using the central-barrel detectors of the ALICE, as well as cross sections for a novel topology where one of the muons from the decay of the J/Psi is detected with the forward-muon spectrometer and the other muon with the central-barrel detectors. This allow us to study the evolution of the cross section with energy in a continuous way in the range 20 GeV < W < 700 GeV. The measurements are compared to the newest models of this process.

        Exclusive vector meson photoproduction at Run 2 LHC energies: Color dipole predictions 24m

        In this contribution we present a comprehensive analysis of exclusive vector-meson photoproduction in $pp$, $pPb$ and $PbPb$ collisions at Run 2 LHC energies using the color dipole formalism. The rapidity distributions and total cross sections for the $\rho$, $\phi$, $J/\Psi$ and $\Upsilon$ production are estimated considering the more recent phenomenological models for the dipole-proton scattering amplitude, which are based on the color glass condensate formalism and are able to describe the inclusive and exclusive ep HERA data. Moreover, we also discuss the impact of the modeling of the vector-meson wave functions on the predictions. The current theoretical uncertainty in the color dipole predictions is estimated and a comparison with the experimental results is performed.

        Subnuclear fluctuations in vector meson photoproduction: a window to saturation 24m

        We present a model of coherent and incoherent photoproduction of vector mesons off proton and off nuclear targets. The computations are perfomed within the color-dipole formalism. The targets are described by a profile, in the impact parameter space, including subnucelon degrees of freedom, so-called hot spots. Their positions change event by event. The key aspect of our model is that the number of hot spots grows with energy.

        We show that the measurement of dissociative production off protons and incoherent production off nuclear targets at different energies offers new signatures of saturation. These measurements can be performed with current LHC data. This work is based on results presented in Phys.Lett. B766 (2017) 186-191 and arXiv:1711.01855 (accepted by PRC). We will also present new results from our model.

        Final states with isolated photons are expected in models of gauge mediated breaking of supersymmetry, but they can also occur as a result of decays of Higgs bosons produced in the decay chains of supersymmetric particles. Results of searches for strong and electroweak production of supersymmetry in events with one or two isolated photons are presented, based on pp collisions recorded with the CMS experiment at sqrt(s) = 13 TeV. In the case of strong production, the most stringent mass limits obtained by these searches reach 2 TeV.

        both at fixed order and matched with a QCD parton shower, for several differential distributions.

        Transversity in inclusive DIS and novel TMD sum rules 30m

        A new collinear factorization analysis of inclusive DIS scattering with suitable non-perturbative “jet correlators” shows​​ that a ​novel, non perturbative ​spin-flip term associated with the invariant mass of the produced hadrons couples to the target's transversity distribution function. In inclusive cross sections, this provides an hitherto neglected and large contribution to the twist-3 part of the g2 structure function, that can explain the discrepancy between recent calculations and fits of this quantity. It also provides an extension of the Burkhardt-Cottingham sum rule, now featuring an interplay between the g2 and h1 functions that calls for a re-examination of their small-x behavior; likewise it provides an extension of the Efremov-Teryaev-Leader sum rule, suggesting a novel way to measure the tensor charge of the proton. As part of the calculation leading to these results, but interesting in their own right, novel TMD sum rules are derived.

        Longitudinal-transverse double-spin asymmetry with a $\cos\phi_S$ modulation in SIDIS 20m

        We study the double-spin asymmetry $A^{\cos\phi_S}_{LT}$ in semi-inclusive DIS for charged and neutral pions production by scattering a longitudinal polarized beam off a transversely polarized proton target. Within the collinear framework, in which the transverse momentum of the final state hadron is integrated out, we predict the asymmetries for three pion productions at the kinematics of CLAS12 and future Electron Ion Collider. There are two sources contributed to the corresponding asymmetry, one is from the convolution of the twist-3 distribution function $g_{T}(x)$ and the unpolarized fragmentation function $D_1(z)$, the other is from the coupling of the transversity distribution function $h_1(x)$ and the collinear twist-3 fragmentation function $\tilde{E}(z)$. Our numerical results show that the $\cos\phi_S$ asymmetry of pion production at CLAS12 is sizable, and the fragmentation function $\tilde{E}(z)$ plays an important role in the large-$z$ region. The asymmetries at EIC are much smaller than those at CLAS12 due to the suppression in the large-Q region.

        Transverse Spin Transfer of Lambda and Anti-Lambda in Polarized Proton-Proton Collisions at 200 GeV at STAR 20m

        The transverse spin transfer from polarized proton to $\Lambda$ and $\bar{\Lambda}$ hyperons is expected to be sensitive to the transversity distribution of the nucleon, and to the transversely polarized fragmentation function. We report the first measurement of the transverse spin transfer of $\Lambda$ and $\bar{\Lambda}$ along the polarization direction of the fragmenting quark, $D_{TT}$, in transversely polarized proton+proton collisions at $\sqrt{s}=200 GeV$ with the STAR experiment at RHIC. The data correspond to an integrated luminosity of 18.4 $pb^{-1}$, which cover a kinematic range of pseudo-rapidity $|\eta|$< 1.2 and hyperon transverse momentum $p_T$ up to 8 GeV/c. The prospect of hyperon polarization measurements in the forward pseudo-rapidity region (2.5<$\eta$<4) in proton+proton collisions in 2021+ will also be discussed, which is based on the STAR forward detector upgrade plan including a forward tracking system and a forward calorimeter system.

We calculate $D^\perp_{1T}$ for light flavors in the spectator diquark model, with a Gaussian form factor at the hyperon-quark-diquark vertex. We include in the calculation both the scalar diquark and axial-vector diquark spectators. We determine the values of the model parameters by fitting the unpolarized fragmentation function $D^\Lambda_1$ to the DSV parametrization for $D^\Lambda_1$. In addition, we compute the longitudinal polarization fragmentation function $G^\Lambda_1$ and compare it with the known parametrization of $G^\Lambda_1$. We also estimate the transverse polarizations of $\Lambda$ production, in both semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering and single inclusive $e^+e^-$ annihilation.

Such machine would provide a huge physics program, with the highest resolution microscope for hadron structure, rich Higgs, top and precision EW physics, large possibilities for BSM searches, and a unique top-energy nuclear physics facility with eventual access to a new regime of QCD at high partonic densities. All these aspects have strong complementarities with the respective, concurrent pp and AA programs.

Nuclear PDFs are greatly unknown, compared to those in the proton, due to the scarcity of experimental data. In this talk I will first review the present status of nuclear PDFs. Then I will discuss the perspectives of further determining them in presently existing experiments, particularly in pPb collisions at the LHC. Finally I will examine the possibilities that planned experiments, both hadronic machines - HL-LHC - and electron-nucleus colliders - EIC, LHeC and FCC-eh, offer for constraining nPDFs.

The technique employs the Hessian method and takes into account the (un)correlated experimental uncertainties and PDF-driven correlations.

        Status and Prospects of measurements of exclusive and diffractive processes with the ATLAS detector 24m

        In the absence of forward proton tagging, exclusive processes can be distinguished in the central part of the ATLAS detector exploiting the large rapidity gap in the central region and the absence of charged particles reconstructed in the inner tracking detector. This strategy has been exploited to study the exclusive production of dilepton pairs in the data taken at centre-of-mass energies of 7 TeV and the exclusive production of W pairs in the 8 TeV data. We also present the latest results on exclusive dimuon production at 13 TeV. Moreover, the ATLAS collaboration has carried out a study of diffractive dijet production. The data distributions are compared with Monte Carlo models and the rapidity gap survival probability has been estimated in the kinematic region with high diffractive contribution.

        Open heavy flavour production in pp and p-Pb collisions with ALICE 20m

        Measurements of heavy-flavour production are a powerful tool to study the properties of the strongly-interacting partonic medium created in ultra-relativistic heavy-ion collisions. The measurements in pp collisions serve as a precision test of perturbative QCD apart from providing the crucial reference for Pb-Pb collisions. Measurements in p-Pb collisions are used to investigate cold nuclear matter effects such as the modification of the parton densities in nuclei with respect to nucleons, kT broadening and energy loss in cold nuclear matter, or a potential existence of collective phenomena. ALICE is well suited to measure heavy-flavour (charm and beauty) production, not only via the full reconstruction of hadronic decays of D-mesons and charm baryons at mid rapidity but also via the measurement of electrons (muons) from semileptonic heavy-flavour hadron decays at mid (forward/backward) rapidity. The aforementioned measurements are performed over a wide transverse-momentum range thanks to the high precision tracking, good vertexing capabilities and excellent particle identification provided by the ALICE detectors. In this contribution, recent results on open heavy-flavour production in pp and p-Pb collision systems will be presented for a wide range of pT and pseudorapidity and for different center-of-mass energies.

        Global description of bottomonium suppression in proton-nucleus and nucleus-nucleus collisions at LHC energies 20m

        Thanks to an improved comover interaction model, we show that we can reach a global and coherent de- scription of bottomonium suppression in both proton-nucleus and nucleus-nucleus collisions as measured by the CMS and ATLAS collaboration at the LHC. The measured relative suppression of the excited bottomonium states as compared to their ground state in proton-nucleus collisions allows us to constrain the scattering cross sections between the bottomonia and comovers also created during the collisions. Our result hints at a similar momentum distribution of these comovers in the environment created by proton-nucleus and nucleus-nucleus collisions. Along the way of our study, we also update our knowledge for the bottomonium feed-down pattern in the kinematical region relevant for such studies. Besides, we improve our knowledge on the modification of the nuclear parton distribution functions in proton-nucleus collisions.

        Heavy flavour spectroscopy and exotic states at LHCb 20m

        The LHCb experiment is designed to study heavy hadrons produced in proton-proton collisions at the LHC.
        Charmed and charmonium hadrons produced in the pp-collision or in b-hadron decays are studied to identify new states, confirming or disproving those recently claimed, and establishing their quantum numbers. The spectroscopy of heavy baryons is also explored with observations of doubly charmed baryons and new excited states in the beauty sector.

        Precision data taken in e+e- annihilation at or near the Υ(4S) by the Belle experiment has been instrumental in the extraction of spin dependent and integrated fragmentation functions.

        Accessing quark helicity in e^+e^- and SIDIS via dihadron correlations. 20m

        The correlation between the longitudinal polarization of a fragmenting quark and the transverse momenta of the produced hadrons was predicted over two decades ago. Nevertheless, experimental searches in the electron-positron annihilation process, both through the so-called jet handedness measurement by the SLD collaboration and more recently via the helicity-dependent dihadron fragmentation function (DiFF) by the BELLE collaboration, did not yield a signal. In this talk, we will first explain the zero result at BELLE, and describe new method for accessing the helicity-dependent DiFF in the same experiment. We will also propose another measurement of the same DiFF in semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering experiments.

        Dihadron correlations in polarized quark hadronization. 20m

        We present our recent calculations of the complete set of the leading-twist quark-polarization-dependent dihadron fragmentation functions (DiFFs) to pion pairs. The quark-jet framework is used to model the sequential hadronization of a polarized quark into hadrons, where the polarization transfer to the remnant quark in each hadron emission step is calculated using the spin density matrix formalism. Using Monte Carlo (MC) simulations of the hadronization process, we find non vanishing signal for both helicity- and transverse-polarization-dependent DiFFs. A method is developed for extracting the angular moments of these DiFFs, which enter the expressions for the azimuthal asymmetries for an electron-positron annihilation process into two pairs of hadrons from back-to-back jets and the dihadron production in semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering. Finally, we derive explicit integral expressions for all four DiFFs where only two hadrons are emitted by a quark and use them to validate our MC results. We also utilize these expressions to study the underlying mechanism for generating the dihadron asymmetries in our sequential hadron emission framework, and discover the crucial role played by the Collins effect.

        Illuminating the photon content of the proton within a global PDF analysis 20m

        Precision phenomenology at the LHC requires accounting for both higher-order QCD and electroweak corrections as well as for photon-initiated subprocesses. Building upon the recent NNPDF3.1 fit, in this work the photon content of the proton is determined within a global analysis supplemented by the LUXqed constraint relating the photon PDF to lepton-proton scattering structure functions: NNPDF3.1luxQED. The uncertainties on the resulting photon PDF are at the level of a few percent, with photons carrying up to 0.5% of the proton's momentum. We study the phenomenological implications of NNPDF3.1luxQED at the LHC for Drell-Yan, vector boson pair, top quark pair, and Higgs plus vector boson production. We find that photon-initiated contributions can be significant for many processes, leading to corrections of up to 20%. Our results represent a state-of-the-art determination of the partonic structure of the proton including its photon component.

        Fits to the final combined HERA deep-inelastic scattering cross-section data within the conventional DGLAP framework of QCD have shown some tension at low x and low Q2. A resolution of this tension incorporating ln(1/x)-resummation terms into the HERAPDF fits is investigated using the xFitter program. The kinematic region where this resummation is important is delineated. Such high-energy resummation not only gives a better description of the data, particularly of the longitudinal structure function FL, it also results in a gluon PDF which is steeply rising at low x for low scales, Q2≃2.5 GeV2, contrary to the fixed-order NLO and NNLO gluon PDF.

        Recent PHENIX results probing gluon dynamics in proton-proton and highly asymmetric nuclear collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$ = 200 and 510 GeV 24m

        The dynamics of gluons in high energy proton and nuclei interactions remain an elusive process. Gluon interactions can be accessed via both light and heavy flavor hadron production at the PHENIX experiment at RHIC. In particular, via systematically measuring the nuclear modification in light hadron production in p+A and light-ion-A collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}} = 200$ GeV, we observed a distinct pattern emerging across large pseudorapidity (-2 -- 2) and transverse momentum ranges (1 -- 20 GeV/c), which can be used to constrain nuclear PDFs and models of parton energy loss in the cold nuclear matter. In addition, the heavy flavor (HF) quarks can be produced in nuclear collisions via various mechanisms that originate from gluons. Recently, the PHENIX collaboration carried out a systematic study of HF production cross sections in p+p collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 200 GeV and 510 GeV via the production channels of non-prompt $J/\Psi$s, single and di-muons production at forward rapidities ($1.2

        Results for Heavy Flavor and Quarkonium production in high multiplicity p+p and p+A collisions in the CGC framework 24m

We first present an update in this framework based on comparisons to the latest LHC and RHIC data on p+p and light-heavy ion collisions. We will then present novel results [5] on extensions of these studies of Heavy Flavor and Quarkonia to rare events; this work, in completion, demonstrates that this framework captures the systematics of both Heavy-Flavor and Quarkonium production as a function of $N_{\rm charge}$ at both RHIC and the LHC. Finally, we will discuss the importance of Sudakov resummations in this framework to describe $\Upsilon$ production [6, 7].

        Exploring gluon saturation with photons in high energy hadron-hadron collisions 24m

        We report on a recent computation of the NLO inclusive photon cross section using the Color Glass Condensate framework at the RHIC and LHC energies. Our result is appropriate for collisions where a dilute projectile (proton) hits a dense target (a proton or a heavy ion). We will briefly elucidate the main analytic NLO formula obtained in [1], while the main focus of this contribution are the first numerical results of the inclusive isolated photon cross section up to NLO [2] and its comparison to the available experimental data. Our main findings are summarized as:
        (i) We demonstrate the kinematic region where the NLO contribution completely dominates over the LO valence quark bremsstrahlung [3].
        (ii) We find that our results compare well with the available $p+p \to \gamma+X$ LHC data at 2.76 TeV and 7 TeV.

        Bose Enhancement in the dilute-dense limit 24m

        The ridge structure in two-particle correlations produced in high multiplicity collisions at the LHC have been examined in the Color Glass Condensate formalism. In this formalism it was found that in the dilute-dilute nucleus limit, corresponding to glasma graphs, the ridge structure was due to the Bose enhancement associated with two-gluon production, with a successful phenomenology developed on this basis. It was an open question whether or not Bose enhancement existed beyond this leading limit. Using the full dilute-dense result for two-gluon correlations we identify the contributions that survive the higher order saturation corrections in the target. We do find a Bose enhanced component of the correlation function when the two produced gluons have either equal transverse momentum or equal and opposite transverse momentum. Bose enhancement, in effect, produces a major contribution to the ridge structure in two-particle correlations.

The main focus will be the physics of the so-called Hidden Portals, i.e. search for Dark Photons, Light scalars and pseudo-scalars, and Heavy Neutrinos. The sensitivity to Heavy Neutrinos will allow for the first time to probe, in the mass range between the kaon and the charm meson mass, a coupling range for which Baryogenesis and active neutrino masses could also be explained. Another dedicated detector will allow the study of neutrino cross-sections and angular distributions. ντ deep inelastic scattering cross sections will be measured with a statistics 1000 times larger than currently available, with the extraction of the F4 and F5 structure functions, never measured so far and allow for new tests of lepton non-universality with sensitivity to BSM physics.

        Study of tau neutrino production property with measuring open-Charms at 400 GeV proton beam dump 20m

        The property of tau neutrino is not well known, due to difficulty of its production and detection.
        The comparison of the neutrino-nucleon cross-section of tau neutrinos and other neutrino flavours is one of the interesting topics.
        The tau neutrino cross-section has been measured by the DONUT experiment, but with a large statistical error of $\sim30\%$ and a systematical uncertainty of $\sim50\%$.
        The statistics of detected tau neutrinos will be improved by a planned experiment such as SHiP experiment at CERN in near future.
        The DsTau collaboration aims to reduce the systematic uncertainty to $10\%$ by measuring the mother particles(Ds mesons) of tau neutrinos at the beam source.
        Ds mesons are generated by proton interactions with the beam dump target, which decay in sequence Ds$\rightarrow$ tau $+\nu_{\tau}$ and tau$\rightarrow\nu_{\tau}+X$.
        DsTau will collect 1000 Ds$\rightarrow$ tau associated events in $2 \times 10^{8}$ proton interactions with the tungsten target using the 400 GeV/c proton beam at CERN SPS.
        The rate and xf distribution of the Ds production will be measured and the reduction of uncertainty on the tau neutrinos production will be achieved as the result.
        Since Ds and tau mass difference is small, the kink angle$(\sim7mrad)$ in the Ds to tau trajectory within a short distance of a few mm decay flight is difficult to detect.
        Emulsion Cloud Chambers, ECCs, dedicated structure with tungsten plates and nuclear emulsion plates are used to detect small angle kinks at Ds to tau decays.
        Since large number,$10^{5}$ events, of associated charm production will be accumulated and analyzed in ECCs, physics of open-charm could be studied as a byproduct.
        In this talk, the DsTau project introduction and results from small scale test exposure in 2016, 2017 will be shown.

        Jefferson Laboratory has an extensive program of Deep Virtual Exclusive Scattering (DVES). I will review salient results from the 6 GeV era, and present the status and goals of both Deep Virtual Compton Scattering (DVCS) and Deep Virtual Meson Production (DVMP). A set of DVCS and exclusive $\pi^0$ measurements from 7 to 11 GeV have been completed in Hall A. A first JLab observation of J/$\Psi$ photo-production has been reported by the GlueX collaboration in Hall D. DVCS measurements and exclusive vector meson production at 10.6 GeV on the proton are starting this Spring with CLAS12 (Hall B). DVES experiments on a new longitudinally polarized NH$_3$/ND$_3$ target are anticipated in the next few years. A new PbWO$_4$ calorimeter is under construction for future measurements in Hall C. These data will provide new insights on the spatial distribution of quarks and gluons at large-$x$, as well as higher-twist quark-gluon correlations.

        Nucleon Tomography 30m

        Generalized parton distributions embody information on both the longitudinal momentum of the quarks as well as their transverse position and thus allow determining a 3-dimensional image of the nucleon. For transversely polarized quarks and or nucleons, the resulting transverse deformation of these images provides new insight on nucleon spin structure and spin-orbit correlations. Twist-3 GPDs provide additional information on the dependence of transverse forces on the impact parameter.

        Accessing generalized TMDs through double Drell-Yan and double $\eta_c$ production processes 20m

        Being the "mother distributions" of all types of two-parton correlation functions, generalized TMDs (GTMDs) have garnered a lot of attention. We address the important question of how to access GTMDs in physical processes. Recently, we have shown that quark GTMDs can in principle be probed through the exclusive pion-nucleon double Drell-Yan process, where the focus was on two particular GTMDs only. We now present new results concerning access to the remaining quark GTMDs in the same process. We also extend our study to the nucleon-nucleon double Drell-Yan process which is sensitive to chiral-odd GTMDs. Moreover, we show that GTMDs for gluons can be explored via exclusive double $\eta_c$ production in hadronic collisions.

        Generalized distribution amplitudes and gravitational form factors for pion 20m

        Generalized parton distributions (GPDs) have been investigated in the deeply virtual Compton scattering (DVCS) to solve the proton spin puzzle. On the other hand, the generalized distribution amplitudes (GDAs) can be studied in the two-photon process $\gamma^*\gamma→h \bar{h}$ which is accessible at KEKB. Namely, the GDAs are the s-t crossed quantities of the GPDs. In 2016, the differential cross section of the process $\gamma^*\gamma→ \pi^0\pi^0$ was measured by the Belle collaboration in the $e^+e^-$ collision [1], so that the pion GDAs can be obtained by analyzing the Belle data. Expressing the GDAs with a few parameters, we determined the GDAs by a $χ^2$ analysis [2]. The form factors of the quark energy-momentum tensor are obtained from the determined GDAs. Then, we calculated the mass radius as 0.56-0.69 fm and the mechanical radius as 1.45-1.56 fm for the pion by using the form factors. This is the first study on gravitational form factors and radii of hadrons from actual experimental measurements [2]. The Belle II will start taking data in 2018 by the upgraded SuperKEKB. Therefore, much accurate data are expected for the pion in the near future, and other hadron productions will be measured for the GDAs. The GDA studies are valuable for understanding not only the 3D structure but also gravitational properties of hadrons.

        Phenomenology with the PARTONS framework of GPD models built from Light Front Wave Functions 20m

        Generalized Parton Distributions (GPDs) encode the correlations between longitudinal momentum and transverse position of partons inside hadrons and can give access to a picture of the nucleon structure in 2+1 dimensions. They have been studied theoretically and experimentally for almost two decades and a new experimental era is starting (at JLab and COMPASS currently, and in the future at an EIC) to extract them.

        The difficulty is that only an indirect experimental access is so far possible, through different exclusive channels and various observables. Therefore, one has to take into account the many theoretical constraints to be able to produce accurate models and rely on their phenomenology. Two important constraints are called the polynomiality and positivity properties. We will show how to make use of both of them by first modeling low Fock states light-front wave-functions, which gives a GPD in the DGLAP region by a parton number conserved overlap, and then covariantly extending this GPD to the ERBL region.

        This work will be illustrated on a constituent quark-like model for valence GPDs. We will show that this allows to produce a phenomenological output (on DVCS data for instance) from this kind of models, which was impossible before. We will demonstrate the unique versatility of the PARTONS framework to achieve this under various perturbative QCD assumptions.

        We consider lepton-jet correlations in deep inelastic scattering (DIS) as a unique probe of the nucleon/ nuclei tomography. We demonstrate the relevant QCD factorization in terms of transverse momentum dependent quark distributions (TMDs), soft functions and jet functions associated with the final state jet. All relevant large logarithms are resummed to next-to-leading logarithmic (NLL) order. In addition, we consider inclusive jet production and we present numerical results relevant for a future Electron-Ion Collider (EIC).

The W and bottom(jet) final states can be produced by s-channel single top decay or t-channel top exchange.

        K− over K+ multiplicity ratio for kaons produced in DIS with a large fraction of the virtual-photon energy 20m

        The $K^−$ over $K^+$ multiplicity ratio is measured in deep-inelastic scattering, for the first time for kaons carrying a large fraction z of the virtual-photon energy. The data were obtained by the COMPASS collaboration using a 160 GeV muon beam and an isoscalar $^6$LiD target. The regime of deep-inelastic scattering is ensured by requiring $Q^2>1$ (GeV/$c)^2$ for the photon virtuality and $W>5$ GeV/$c^2$ for the invariant mass of the produced hadronic system. Kaons are identified in the momentum range from 12 GeV/$c$ to 40 GeV/$c$, thereby restricting the range in Bjorken-$x$ to $0.01 < x < 0.40$. The $z$-dependence of the multiplicity ratio is studied for $z>0.75$. For very large values of $z$, i.e. $z>0.8$, the results contradict expectations obtained using the formalism of (next-to-)leading order perturbative quantum chromodynamics. This may imply that cross-section factorisation or/and universality of (kaon) fragmentation functions do not hold. Our studies suggest that within this formalism an additional correction may be required, which takes into account the phase space available for hadronisation.

        Hadronization in Semi-Inclusive DIS from CLAS at Jefferson Lab 20m

        In this talk I will present preliminary results on π+, π- and π0 multiplicity ratios measured as a function of multiple kinematical variables in semi-inclusive DIS on three nuclei (C, Fe, Pb) normalized to deuterium . The series of measurements were performed at Jefferson Lab with 5.014 GeV electron beam incident on a double-target system in which liquid deuterium and one of the solid targets were exposed simultaneously to the beam. These measurements will be further extended in the approved experiment at 11 GeV. The goal is to provide new insights on parton propagation inside nuclear medium and expand current knowledge on hadronization mechanisms. This topic has been of interest to multiple communities: Drell-Yan measurements at Fermilab, heavy-ion collisions in RHIC and LHC and SIDIS measurements from HERMES and CLAS, all of which contribute different kind of information on short distance processes. The advantages of SIDIS are its well understood nuclear medium and ability to investigate time-dependence of hadronization by embedding it in nuclei of increasing size. It is to be hoped that the studies of cold QCD matter, once matured, can influence the interpretation of what is seen in the hot dense systems (LHC), in addition to their intrinsic interest for QCD.

The top quark mass is measured in the lepton+jets channel is consistent with the CMS measurements of Run-1. The top quark mass is also studied as a function of the event kinematical properties. For the first time at the LHC, the width of the top quark is directly probed during Run-2, in what constitutes the most precise direct bound of the top quark width performed to date. Finally, searches for flavor-changing neutral currents involving top quarks are also discussed including tZq, and tHq couplings, in top quark pair and single top production.

        State of the art POWHEG generators for Top Mass Measurements at the LHC 20m

        We study the theoretical uncertainties in the determination of the top-quark mass using next-to-leading-order (NLO) generators interfaced to parton showers (PS) that have different levels of accuracy. Specifically we consider three generators: one that implements NLO corrections in the production dynamics, one that includes also NLO corrections in top decay in the narrow width approximation, and one that implements NLO corrections for both production and decay including finite-width and interference effects. Our aim is to provide an assessment of the uncertainties of purely theoretical origin, we thus consider simplified top-mass related observables that are broadly related to those effectively used by experiments, eventually modelling experimental resolution effects with simple smearing procedures. Examining these observables with generators of increasing accuracy allows us to assess the theoretical errors due to the use of the less accurate generators. Furthermore, we estimate theoretical uncertainties associated with the variation of scales and with the choice of parton distribution functions. In order to give an indicative assessment of the uncertainties due to the shower and to the modelling of non-perturbative effects, we interface our NLO+PS generators to both Pythia8.2 and Herwig7.1, with various settings, and compare the results.

        Small-x Contributions of the Quark and Gluon Helicity to the Proton Spin 30m

        The contribution of the quark and gluon helicity distributions to the proton spin requires integrating these helicity PDFs over the entire range of x. This necessarily involves an extrapolation of the measured PDFs at finite values of x into their small-x asymptotics. As is well-known in the case of the unpolarized quark and gluon distributions, the small-x asymptotics are governed by evolution equations, leading to a determination of the intercept: the exponent of the power-law behavior of the PDFs at small x. In this talk, I will present the derivation and solution of the corresponding small-x evolution equations for the quark and gluon helicity PDFs. Because the transfer of spin to small x is a sub-eikonal effect, the small-x evolution equations for helicity are significantly different from the unpolarized ones. The helicity evolution equations I will present resum double logarithms of 1/x, and they are sensitive to the detailed transverse structure of the polarized quark / gluon splitting kernels. The solution of these equations yields a leading-log evaluation of the quark and gluon helicity intercepts, which predict an enhancement of the helicity PDFs in the small-x tails. Preliminary estimates suggest that the enhancement of the proton spin contribution from polarized quarks may be significant, but is much milder for gluons.

        Next-to-Leading Order QCD Corrections to Inclusive Heavy-Flavor Production in Polarized Deep-Inelastic Scattering 20m

        We provide a first calculation of the complete next-to-leading order QCD corrections for heavy flavor contributions to the inclusive structure function $g_1$ in longitudinally polarized deep-inelastic scattering. The results are derived with largely analytical methods and retain the full dependence on the heavy quark’s mass. We discuss all relevant technical details of the calculation and present numerical results for the heavy quark scaling functions. We perform important crosschecks to verify our results in the known limit of photoproduction and for the unpolarized electroproduction of heavy quarks. We also compare our calculations to the available, partial results in the polarized case, in particular, in the limit of asymptotically large photon virtualities. First steps towards phenomenological applications are taken by providing some estimates for inclusive charm production in polarized deep-inelastic scattering at a future electron-ion collider and studying their sensitivity to the polarized gluon distribution. The residual dependence of heavy quark electroproduction on unphysical factorization and renormalization scales and on the heavy quark mass is investigated.

        Physics at the Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) 20m

        The Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) is a proposed high-luminosity linear
        electron-positron collider operated at energies from the top pair
        production threshold up to 3 TeV. With its high luminosity and flexible
        collision energy CLIC offers a wide spectrum of possible physics research,
        from precision measurement of Standard Model parameters to searches for
        new particles and new physics phenomena. At the first stage CLIC will be
        operated at 350-380 GeV collision energy. At this stage the emphasis is on
        precision top quark physics, e.g. via a threshold scan around 350 GeV, and
        on model-independent determination of the Higgs boson couplings by
        applying the recoil mass technique to Higgs-strahlung events. At the
        higher energy stages (1500 and 3000 GeV) Higgs bosons will be produced in
        large numbers via the WW-fusion process. This allows to measure the Higgs
        boson properties with high precision and to search for rare Higgs decays.
        The sensitivity to anomalous top quark form-factors is also improved at
        high collision energies. CLIC operation at 3 TeV will allow to perform
        direct and indirect searches for supersymmetry and other phenomena of new
        physics models. New particles can be discovered in a model-independent way
        almost up to the kinematic limit of 1500 GeV, while indirect evidences can
        be sensitive to new physics at the scale of tens of TeVs.

        In this talk we present an overview of the CLIC physics potential using
        physics benchmark studies. The results are based on the full detector
