2016 CTEQ-MCnet School

The Coordinated Theoretical-Experimental Project on QCD


and the MCnet Collaboration

will organize and conduct the
CTEQ-MCnet School
QCD, Electroweak Phenomenology,
and Monte Carlo Generators


Hamburg, Germany
6 - 16 July 2016

The school will be locally hosted by DESY. The school will also include "hands-on" Monte Carlo tutorial sessions.





References in preparation for the School can be found on the CTEQ Pedagogical Page

The School is ideally suited for advanced graduate students and recent PhDs.

Topics to be covered:

  • Introductions to QCD and electroweak theory
  • Introduction to Monte Carlo generators
  • Parton densities: introduction and tutorial
  • Monte Carlo tutorials
  • Matching and merging higher orders
  • W, Z and Higgs production at the LHC
  • Heavy quarks
  • Jet physics
  • BSM searches at the LHC
  • Dark matter and Astroparticle physics
  • Future colliders

Organizing Committee:

Markus Diehl, Judith Katzy, Katerina Lipka, Sven-Olaf Moch,
Stefan Gieseke, David Grellscheid, Stefan Hoeche, Frank Krauss,
Peter Richardson, Mike Seymour,
Ed Berger, Joey Huston, Karol Kovarik, Tom LeCompte, Jorge Morfin, Frank Petriello,
Fred Olness, Pavel Nadolsky, Zack Sullivan, Dave Soper, Nikos Varelas, Werner Vogelsang.

Application Form

To apply for the School please fill out the online application form.

The online form will collect your basic contact information, a SHORT statement of current research (just a few sentences), and allow you to upload an (optional) "Curriculum Vitae & Publications" document. It will also send an email request for a letter of reference to someone you specify. All materials are collected online via the AcademicJobsOnline website; do not send hard-copies of any materials.

The deadline for applications has passed.

Enrollment will be limited to 80 participants.

A registration fee of 690 euros (estimated) covers the participant's portion of lodging as well as most meals. A limited number of fellowships covering all or part of the registration fee will be available.

EMAIL: For questions, you may contact: qcd2016@gmail.com Do not send applications to this email -- all application material is collected online.
