QCD at short distances: experiment, theory and tools

The goal of this working group is the investigation of QCD at short distances including its phenomenology at proton and heavy-ion colliders. Its activities include specific calculation aspects and tools used in perturbative QCD without any restriction concerning the observables studied.

The perimeter includes the calculation of radiative corrections at fixed order or to all orders in resummation, the automation of calculations, the techniques to interface event generators as well as the definition of new observables.

This working group aims at offering new collaboration opportunities  between theorists working with perturbative QCD and LHC & EIC experimentalists.
