QCD@LHC 2018

27th - 31st August 2018, Dresden, Germany

Thanks to all participants for joining us for QCD@LHC 2018 in Dresden. We hope you had safe travels home and are looking forward to QCD@LHC 2019 in Buffalo from July 15-19 (note the changed date!).

  • Theory of Jets
  • Parton Density Functions
  • Higher Order Calculations
  • Event Simulations
  • Resummation
  • Top Physics
  • Higgs Physics
  • QCD for BSM studies

    (Simone Marzani & Danilo Enoque Ferreira De Lima)
  • Inclusive and dijet production at the LHC
    (Joao Pires & Bogdan Malaescu)
  • QCD background processes in BSM searches
    (Jonas Lindert & Paolo Gunnellini)
  • Pileup modelling and mitigation at the LHC
    (Matteo Cacciari & Satoshi Hasegawa)
