I will talk about our recent attempt to formulate lattice QCD in rotating frames for the purpose of studying the physics of QCD matter under rotation. We construct the lattice QCD action with the rotational metric and apply it to a Monte Carlo simulation. As an application, we calculate the angular momentum densities of gluons and quarks in the rotating QCD vacuum.
