Ecole "QCD prospects for future ep and eA colliders" du GDR PH-QCD  
Mon, Jun. 4th, 2012 to Fri, Jun. 8th, 2012

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.

chairpersons of the school:


H. Moutarde (IRFU/SPhN)

S. Wallon (LPT Orsay) ...
