We are very pleased to announce the workshop "Physics at the Falls: QCD Factorization" on November 2-3 2015, as a part of an on-going physics workshop series from the Department of Physics, University at Buffalo.

The goal of this workshop is to to review the increasing number of calculations that deal with the limitations or the breaking of QCD factorization. In particular, we would like to investigate their potential consequences on fixed-order calculations, resummation and parton showers. We aim at an informal event, with a small number (a dozen) of invited participants. There will be some presentations (blackboard or slides), followed by plenty of time for discussion. The workshop is held at Fronczak Hall Room 245, North Campus of UB. In order to avoid overlap with HEFT2015 in Chicago, the workshop will be held on November 2nd and 3rd, starting Monday morning and finishing Tuesday after lunch, with the possibility of attending the department seminar Tuesday 3:30pm given by Prof. Jeffrey Forshaw (University of Manchester).

The on-going "Physics at the Falls" series is supported by the State University of New York through the College of Arts and Sciences at University at Buffalo (UB), to promote science and higher education in the Western New York region.

Topics of Interest


We will provide hotel accommodation at the local Ramada Hotel for Sunday and Monday nights, as well as meals on Monday and Tuesday. Accommodation for Tuesday night can be also arranged upon request.
