LOW X '04 Workshop on Low x Physics - Prague 2004  
NEWS:

LOW X MEETING: PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC, September 2004

15 - 18.9.2004

FZU CVUT CEA

Meeting is supported by CEA Saclay and French Ministery of Foreign Affairs (ECONET program)

Purpose and history

Prague

The aim of the workshop is to encourage experimentalists and theorists to discuss new results, hot topics and open problems in low x physics and diffraction at HERA, the Tevatron and beyond. It will also provide a forum for discussion of the opportunities at the LHC and RHIC.

The Low x Workshop grew out of the 1991/92 working group on HERA physics at DESY and has met almost every year since then: Saclay (1994), Cambridge (1995), Durham (1996), Madrid (1997), Berlin (1998), Tel Aviv (1999), Oxford (2000), Kraków (2001), Antwerpen (2002) and Nafplio (2003).


Topics

  • DIS at small x and structure functions of the proton, photon and pomeron
  • diffractive events and the problem of the pomeron
  • diffractive Higgs production at the Tevatron and LHC
  • diffraction at HERA vs. Tevatron
  • investigation of hadronic final states
  • photoproduction and DIS at low Q²
  • vector meson production
  • prospects in hard photon-photon physics
  • other hot topics (open to suggestions)
