The International Spring School on "QCD prospects for future e-p and e-A colliders"
will be held at Orsay from June 4 to 8, 2012.
It is organized by the french "Research Group on Hadron Physics and QCD" (GDR PH-QCD).
The school will focus on several key topics, in the spirit of an ideal machine which would combine a high center-of-mass energy, a high luminosity and beam polarization facilities. It will be devoted both to phenomenological aspects and theoretical problems, with a small touch about the experimental aspects of the different projects. Each of the four main lecturers, among the leading specialists of the field, will have a substantial amount of time (4 lectures of 90 mn for each lecturer) to cover the various topics in an extensive way. In addition, a presentation of the various projects and of their physics cases will be provided in the form of extended seminars.
The main lectures will be on :
High energy e-p and e-A scattering, by A. Mueller (Columbia U., New York).
TMDs : theory and phenomenology, by P. Mulders (Vrije U., Amsterdam).
Factorization of hard processes, by G. Sterman (Stony Brook U., Stony Brook).
GDPs and spatial structure of hadrons, M. Vanderhaegen (J. Gutenberg U., Mainz).
The inscription to the school is free of charge. Coffee breaks, lunches are included.
A few grants will be available to partially support PhD students for their accommodation and travelling expenses.
