Confronting QCD with Experiment:
Puzzles and Challenges
7-9 November 1996
Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory
A Symposium to critically examine current puzzling inconsistencies
and outstanding challenges in confronting QCD with experimental results.
Sessions begin at 9:00am Thursday 7 November and end at 5:00pm
Saturday 9 November.
The task of comparing experimental results with predictions of QCD has
been underway for almost two decades. During this interval the scope and
sophistication of the theory as well as the quality and range of
experimental data have improved dramatically. Recent comparisons of the
refined theory with experimental results, based on better-understood
systematics and increased sample sizes, have provided comprehensive and
critical tests of QCD and yielded a number of intriguing inconsistencies.
Motivated by these developments, and the need to critically examine
these points to provide guidance for further progress, the CTEQ
Collaboration is organizing a Symposium on "Confronting QCD with Experiment:
Puzzles and Challenges" to be held this November. Attached is an
initial announcement and registration form. We hope you will join us.
For the Organizing Committee
Jorge G. Morfín
Planned topics include:
- What are the outstanding controversies in pQCD?
- Is there really an s problem?
- Can uncertainties of parton distributions be quantified?
- Do they obscure real, possibly new, physics?
- How well do pQCD jets match measured jets?
- NLO pQCD vs. parton showers: which approximation work best
- Can they be reconciled?
- Multi-scale problems in QCD: does resummation help?
- Are renormalons relevant to phenomenology?
- Is heavy quark QCD theory really understood?
- Will we recognize BFKL physics when we see it?
- Can lattice QCD and perturbative QCD meet half-way?
- Does perturbative QCD belong in nuclear physics?
