The QCD Evolution Workshop 2020 will be held at University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), Apr 27 - May 1, 2020.

The QCD Evolution workshop series started in 2011 with a two-day meeting held at Jefferson Lab that addressed the theoretical underpinnings of generalized parton distributions (GPDs) and transverse momentum distributions (TMDs), with a particular focus on the QCD evolution of the non-collinear TMDs. Since this initial meeting QCD Evolution has grown to be a leading hadron physics meeting with a focus on hadron tomography.

A main objective of QCD Evolution Workshop is to provide a forum to discuss the recent scientific accomplishments in areas such as Transverse Momentum Distributions (TMDs), Generalized Parton Distributions (GPDs), and small-x physics, together with advances in perturbative and non-perturbative techniques within Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD), such as lattice QCD and effective field theory techniques.

In doing so this workshop also aims to support and guide the physics programs at facilities such as Jefferson Lab, the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven National Lab, Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, and the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) complex at CERN. The workshop is also central to the planning for the next-generation nuclear physics facility in the US, the Electron Ion Collider (EIC).

The registration fee is 200 US dollars. You may also purchase an optional banquet ticket for yourself and for any guests you may want to bring at 50 US dollars per person. The conference banquet is on Wednesday evening, April 29, 2020. To register for the workshop, and submit an abstract if you plan to give a talk, please refer to the registration page.
