There have been exciting recent progress in the field of QCD, including: new understanding of factorization, resummation and power corrections that give insight into effective field theories; a new ability to compute NNLO and beyond perturbative corrections that allow precision jet phenomenology at the LHC and other future colliders; better organizing principles for computing multi-loop corrections; the development of new parton showers with higher-order matching is now possible; and, many other new advances. This workshop will bring together a small group of experts to allow for targeted discussions that identify possible future advances that merge these new ideas. The topics we plan to discuss include but are not limited to:
  • Factorization in effective field theory, including the impact of Glauber logs and power corrections;
  • Resummation-based subtraction techniques and their latest precision phenomenology results;
  • Recent advances in parton shower Monte Carlos;
  • New PDFs and the impact of resumation on improving their uncertainty;
  • Combining QCD and electroweak effects in precision observables;
  • Developments in calculating two-loop virtual corrections and beyond.
