2018 Workshop on Probing Quark-Gluon Matter with Jets


Observables involving QCD jets have proven to be effective in probing the hot nuclear medium created in heavy ions collisions. In the last decade important theoretical and experimental advances have been achieved towards understanding jet evolution in QCD media, stimulated by jet measurements at RHIC and LHC.

Novel substructure techniques that were developed recently within the high-energy physics community have also drawn much attention in the context of heavy ion collisions and are currently being investigated. While the latter efforts are mainly attempting to describe final-state interactions, jets in electron-ion collisions constitute comprehensive tools for probing the nuclear structure.

The workshop aims at bringing together leading experts form the heavy ion and the high energy physics communities, both theorists and experimentalists, to review the latest progress in jet physics in the various subfields, share their respective expertise and discuss the related technical challenges. The goal is to provide a platform to assess the new jet observables whose scope is probing quark-gluon matter.

The program will consist of a workshop with contributed talks for three days, July 23–25, 2018, for which you can register through this website. The workshop will be followed by a less intense program from July 26 to August 3 intended to provide time for in depth discussions and collaborations on various research projects. If you wish to attend the post workshop program please email Dorothy Davis ( , our workshop coordinator.

The workshop will cover the following topics:

  • Jet quenching in heavy ion collisions and small systems
  • Jets in eA collisions
  • Jet substructure
  • Monte Carlo implementations
