Future challenges for precision QCD

Fabrizio Caola (CERN), Simon Badger (Edinburgh/Durham IPPP)
Description
Precision measurements at Run II of the LHC continue to demand smaller theoretical uncertainties. In this meeting we aim to bring together experts in the field to discuss current issues in the theoretical models. Topics of particular interest are Higgs and Top quark physics, new techniques for infrared subtraction and loop integrals as well as fixed order and parton shower matching beyond NLO. Organisers: Simon Badger, Fabrizio Caola
