QCD Evolution 2022 Workshop, May 9–13

Thursday, May 5 2022

Sponsored by the Department of Energy-funded Jefferson Lab and the Southeastern Universities Association, QCD Evolution has grown into an important hadron-physics meeting since its first workshop in 2011. With additional sponsorship by the College's Department of Physics, QCD Evolution provides a forum to discuss the most recent scientific advances in the exploration of the strong interactions and how they give rise to mass, spin and the internal structure of all visible matter at the femto scale, or the field of nuclear femtography. A major goal of the workshop is to provide guidance to the physics programs at experimental facilities from Jefferson Lab to the upcoming, next-generation nuclear physics accelerator in the U.S., the Electron Ion Collider (EIC).

The main topics addressed in next week's workshop in Newcomb Hall involve advances in both perturbative and non-perturbative techniques in Quantum Chromodynamics(QCD). The workshop will feature, in particular, two panel discussions open to questions from the audience on DEI and Machine Learning in nuclear physics.
