Precise predictions for scattering amplitudes and cross sections are extremely important for the progress of High Energy Physics. At colliders such as the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), these predictions are obtained from fixed-order perturbative computations in quantum field theory, most notably in Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD). Finite-order calculations are often combined with all-order (resummed) results, when available, in order to improve the reliability of perturbation theory in extended kinematic regions. These computations have played a crucial role for understanding the physics results of the LHC: in particular, the identification of the scalar particle discovered in 2012 as the Higgs boson was possible only thanks to the availability of high-order QCD predictions. The absence (so far) of new physics signals, and the fact that the maximum collision energy has essentially been achieved, suggest that in future the search for new physics will be based on precision, since visible future signals are most likely to present themselves as subtle distortions of Standard Model predictions.
This workshop aims at bringing together the experts of the field and research scholars to discuss the latest developments of the field and to also forge new international collaborations.
