Workshop on NLO energy loss

March 3 - 14, 2014

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

OrganizersL Xin-Nian Wang (CCNU/LBNL) and Bowen Xiao (CCNU)

The JET Collaboration will hold a small working group meeting on NLO jet energy loss at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory from March 3 to 14., 2014. This will be a small informal meeting with active experts in this subfield to discuss recent progresses and near term challenges on calculation of parton energy loss and momentum broadening at the next-to-leading order (NLO). There will be only 1-2 talks each day and the rest is devoted to informal and in-depth discussions.

All seminars are held in the Theory Lounge of the Nuclear Theory Group at LBNL.
