Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review


The workshop on Parton Distributions and Lattice Calculations in the LHC era (PDFLattice2017) was hosted at Balliol College, Oxford (UK), from 22nd to 24th March 2017. The workshop brought together the lattice-QCD and the global-fit physicists who devote their efforts to determine the parton distribution functions (PDFs) of the proton. The goals were to make the two communities more familiar between each other, review developments from both sides, and set precision targets for lattice calculations so that they can contribute, together with the forthcoming experimental input, to the next generation of PDF determinations. This contribution summarises the relevant outcome of the workshop, in anticipation of a thorough white paper.

I would like to thank all the participants to the PDFLattice2017 workshop for making it very fruitful. I am also grateful to Jacqueline Gills and Michelle Bosher for their help in the organisation of the workshop. The workshop was partly supported by the European Research Council via the Starting Grant PDF4BSM - Parton Distributions in the Higgs Boson Era. I acknowledge financial support from the UK STFC Rutherford Grant ST/M003787/1.
