At the dawn of the precision era at the LHC, Monte Carlo Event
Generators constitute the main bridge between theory and experiments. In
this scenario, it becomes paramount to understand quantitatively the
perturbative accuracy of the underlying algorithms in view of assessing
precisely their theory uncertainty, and of formulating new methods to
achieve higher perturbative accuracy in the simulations. In parallel,
this theoretical progress crucially requires an efficient exploitation
of modern computing technology to address the substantial CPU demand for
event simulations at modern collider experiments. The goal of this
workshop is to bring together leading experts in the field to analyse
recent progress and encourage new collaborations to tackle the main open

Given the current situation of uncertainty due to the covid-19 pandemic, we are very sorry to inform you that the workshop will not take place in its original format. The workshop will be instead divided into two sessions as follows: * A one-week virtual workshop in the period 29 June - 3 July 2020 This will serve as a kick-off meeting, and to trigger discussions that can be picked up in the next session. * A one-week physical workshop in January 2021, where we will have more in-depth discussions, and possibly some conclusions of discussions triggered by the kick-off meeting.
