Prof. Thomas Mehen will be hosting the Xth annual Workshop on Soft-Collinear Effective Theory, SCET2013, at Duke University, March 13-16, 2013. The conference webpage can be found here. Soft-Collinear Effective Theory (SCET) is a recently developed theoretical tool for deriving factorization theorems and renormalization group equations that allow one to resum large higher order corrections in theoretical calculations within perturbative Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD). Such theorems and resummed cross sections are essential for accurately predicting the cross sections for Standard Model particle as well as new particles in high energy physics experiments like the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The conference will bring almost 60 participants working on SCET and perturbative QCD from all over the world to discuss the latest developments in this field.
