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 fixedorder perturbative computations in quantum field theory, most notably in Quantum
Chromodynamics (QCD). Finiteorder calculations are often combined with allorder (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 highorder 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.
