  • Johannes Henn: QCD scattering amplitudes
  • Yuri Kovchegov: QCD at small-x and saturation
  • Andrew Larkoski: Jet physics and machine learning
  • Malin Sjodahl: Pictorial and spinor-helicity techniques for scattering amplitudes

Applications are now open, all interested candidates should apply via the pre-registration form at: QCD Master Class 2024 (23 June 2024 - 5 July 2024): Application · Indico

The deadline for application is March 15, 2024.
