Title: Modeling and extraction of GPDs from exclusive processes

Abstract: Generalized parton distributions (GPDs) encompass crucial information on the three dimensional structure of hadrons and their mechanical properties via the gravitational form factors. I will discuss how their scale dependence determines the propagation of uncertainty in the deconvolution problem of hard exclusive observables, and offers at the same time a great opportunity to model GPDs in the small Bjorken-x limit. I will present a modeling strategy to implement theoretical constraints and give a more comprehensive picture of extraction uncertainties.
