High Energy Jets (HEJ) is a resummation framework designed to include contributions from high energy logarithms in 𝑠̂ /𝑝2⊥ to all orders in perturbation theory. These logs can become significant at the LHC and future colliders, and are significantly enhanced by the requirement of a large dijet invariant mass or large rapidity separation common in VBF/VBS cuts.

I will present a poster giving a general overview of the HEJ formalism at leading logarithm, followed by a discussion on recent developments included as part of the upcoming code release. In particular, I will discuss predictions for the QCD $\alpha_s^2\alpha_w^2$ contribution to same-sign 𝑊𝑊+≥2 jets vector boson scattering [arXiv:2107.06818] and for inclusive Higgs + 1 jet production [arXiv:2210.10671].
