First Bulletin

Dear Colleague,

We would like to invite you to participate in PDFLattice2019, the second  workshop dedicated to Parton Distribution Functions and Lattice Calculations,  which will be hosted by the Michigan State University at the Kellogg  Biological Station ( from 25 to 27 September 2019. 

The workshop continues the series started at the University of Oxford  in 2017 (  and aims at bringing together the global PDF analysis and lattice-QCD  communities to explore ways to improve the current understanding of the distributions of partons in the nucleon.

The format of the workshop will be similar to the one adopted in the previous edition, that is we plan to schedule few short talks and ample time for discussions. Following the survey that was circulated earlier, on top of a follow-up on the topics discussed in Oxford, we expect to dedicate one full day to talk about issues and opportunities in the determination of transversity. The rest of the workshop will include a brainstorming session on what lattice QCD could do to help determine Generalized Parton Distributions (GPDs), and a session to plan how the output of the workshop will be documented.
A preliminary version of the workshop web site can be found here:

Workshop participation is by invitation only.

The conference center provides an intimate setting on picturesque Gull Lake surrounded by natural gardens.

As space is limited, please let us know if you can accept our invitation and register on the workshop web page at your earliest convenience.

We hope you can join us at PDFLattice2019.

Kind regards,

Huey-Wen Lin (Michigan State University)
Emanuele Nocera (Nikhef, Amsterdam)
