Low-x 2020


IMPORTANT NEWS (August 1st 2020)

Low x will be postponed by one year to Fall 2021 given the situation with COVID-19. New cases are now appearing in Europe with countries closing their borders again and we feel that it is impossible to hold Low x under these conditions.  Thank you very much for all participants that were interested in coming, and see you next year in Elba!




The organizing committee is paying close attention to the coronavirus pandemic situation development. In this sense, please treat this registration form as a ``pre-registration''. We will confirm whether an in-person meeting will take place in July 2020 via e-mail for registered participants, and on this webpage.


The purpose of the Low-x workshop is to stimulate discussions between experimentalists and theorists in diffractive hadronic physics, QCD dynamics at low-x, parton saturation and exciting problems in QCD at HERA, Tevatron, LHC, RHIC and the future EIC.

The conference venue will tentatively be at Hotel La Biodola in Elba island in Italy from September 14th through September 18th 2020. Full boarding at the hotel (breakfast, lunch and dinner) will be included in the price of the hotel.

We ask people to register temporally and we will confirm the meeting by the beginning of July 2020.

The fees will be about 200 Euros and will cover the coffee breaks and a short tour of the island.

Low-x is an annual workshop whose spirit is to favour fruitful and informal discussions between experimentalists and theorists in low-x, diffractive hadronic physics and exciting problems in QCD at HERA, Tevatron and LHC.

The workshop will allow theorists and experimentalists from different areas (LHC, RHIC, EIC, HERA...) to meet and contribute together. The workshop is by invitation and about 70 physicists are expected to attend in order to favor exchanges between participants. Discussion sessions (about 2 hours per day) will be organized so that new ideas in theory or experiments can be further developed.


Low-x has been held since DESY (1993), then Saclay (May 1994), Cambridge (July 1995), Durham (June 1996), Madrid (June 1997), Berlin (June 1998), Tel Aviv (June 1999), Oxford (July 2000), Cracow (June 2001), Antwerpen (September 2002), Nafplio (June 2003), Prague (September 2004), Sinaia (June 2005), Lisbon (June 2006), Helsinki (September 2007), Crete (July 2008), Ischia (September 2009), Kavala (June 2010), Santiago de Compostela (June 2011), Cyprus (June 2012), Eilat (June 2013), Kyoto (June 2014), Sandomierz (September 2015), Gyongyos (June 2016), Bisceglie (June 2017), Reggio Calabria jointly with Diffraction 2018 (August 2018), Nicosia, Cyprus (August 2019).

The Workshop is organized and sponsored by the University of Kansas and by EMMI.
