MC4EIC 2022, the next workshop on Monte Carlo event simulation for the EIC, is organized by the CTEQ collaboration, the EIC User Group, the HEP Software Foundation (HSF), and MCnet as a remote meeting from November 16–18.
Following up directly on previous workshops, we will start with in-depth reports on the precision of foreseen measurements and the related MC event generator (MCEG) needs. This will frame a discussion of MCEGs that are currently being developed for the EIC. We are asking developers to submit an abstract to present both the status of their project and the thrust of future R&D. The connection between formal QCD theory and its implementation in MCEGs will also be explored.
Developing precision simulation will require advancements in QCD theory and computational methods, as well as a close dialogue between experimentalists and theorists. We would like to conclude the workshop with a discussion on how to facilitate this dialogue and work together on cross-cutting aspects between theory and experiment in NHEP.
