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

The Organizing Committee is following the measures being taken by CERN against the COVID-19 outbreak. We plan to make a decision about if and how to run the workshop by the end of April at the very latest. Registration will be kept open until 12 April 2020, and the applications will be assessed shortly afterwards.
