QCD Evolution 2018
The 2018 QCD Evolution Workshop will take place May 20-24, 2018 at the Drury Plaza Hotel in Downtown Santa Fe, NM.
In a few short years since its inception in 2011, the QCD Evolution Workshop has rapidly grown to be the premier scientific meeting where advances in the exploration of the internal structure of the nucleon are reported. This workshop brings together senior researchers, postdoctoral fellows and talented graduate students to discuss the exciting recent developments and future directions in nuclear science. The purpose of the QCD Evolution Workshop is to summarize the accomplishments and provide guidance for the community effort in the areas of Transverse Momentum Distributions (TMDs), Generalized Parton Distributions (GPDs), small-x physics and Soft Collinear Effective Theory (SCET). The theory is closely tied to experiments at the leading nuclear and particle physics facilities in the US and abroad, such as the Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility (CEBAF) at Jefferson Lab, the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven National Lab and the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) complex at CERN. The workshop is also central to the planning of the next-generation nuclear physics facility in the US, such as the Electron Ion Collider (EIC).
