Higgs Physics at the Tevatron and LHC: the QCD Issues



Dan Green, Ian Shipsey (Purdue U.), Joey Huston (Michigan State)
The goal of the workshop is to review QCD-related questions that have an impact on Higgs predictions and analyses, with a goal of providing some answers or at least some consensus. Rather than a workshop saturated with talks, the attempt will be to promote a lively discussion on these issues. The workshop will be held in 1-West at Fermilab, starting at 9 AM CST, with evo broadcasting provided. Higgs at the LHC will be covered in the morning (for the benefit of people connecting by evo in Europe), and Higgs at the Tevatron will be covered in the afternoon. The meeting is a joint activity of CTEQ and the Fermilab LPC. If you are interested, please register so that we have an idea of how many people might attend.
