The XVIIth annual workshop on Soft-Collinear Effective Theory will be held online, with participants from around the world, over 5 days from June 8-12, 2020. The goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers interested in SCET, factorization, resummation and (non)perturbative QCD, to discuss the latest developments and their applications to particle and nuclear physics. 

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic the meeting will be held using Zoom video conferencing and include a dedicated Slack workspace for participants to interact. Online activities will include talks, question periods, coffee breaks for open discussion in multiple Zoom rooms, and social activities.  Registration is required to participate in the workshop.  

An example schedule for a day of talks is given below. We encourage students, postdocs, or faculty who are interested in speaking to submit an abstract.  Please note that with a maximum of 20 talks, not everyone that applies will be selected to speak.

Held over Zoom and Slack

The workshop will be held over 5+1 days.  Due to the difficulty with having participants in many time zones we intend to have 4 talks per day, each 20+10min.   A day with 4 talks will look like (East Coast US times):

9:00am - coffee, mingle, get setup

9:30am - talk 1

10:00am - talk 2

10:30am - coffee break, discussion and mingling

11:00am - talk 3

11:30am - talk 4

12:00pm - coffee break, discussion and mingling

12:30pm - end

These time periods correspond to (6:00am - 9:30am, West Coast US),  (15:00 - 18:30, Europe),  (9:00pm - 12:30am, China).
