The Pittsburgh Particle physics, Astrophysics & Cosmology Center (PITT PACC) welcome everyone to LoopFest XIX conference, which will be held on May 7-9 at University of Pittsburgh.  

LoopFest provides a forum for discussing the latest results in precision quantum field theory and their applications to understanding experimental data at current and future colliders.

The workshop will consist of three days of plenary talks.

Topics include:
  - The potential of the LHC and future colliders for precision measurements
  - Progress in multi-loop and multi-leg calculations
  - Interfacing fixed-order higher-order calculations with multi-purpose event generators
  - Application of effective field theory techniques to precision calculations
  - Prospects for improving PDFs for precision measurements


Local organizers: Ayres Freitas (chair), Joni George, Tao Han, Keping Xie

Advisory Committee: Lance Dixon (SLAC), Frank Petriello (Northwestern), Laura Reina (FSU), Doreen Wackeroth (U Buffalo)


Welcome reception: May 6 (Wednesday), 18:30-20:30, Wyndham Hotel

Conference banquet: May 8 (Friday), 19:00-21:00,  LeMont restaurant


Sponsored by the Pittsburgh Particle physics, Astrophysics & Cosmology Center (PITT PACC)
