The QMUL Particle Physics Research Center (PPRC) is hosting the QCD@LHC conference, from the 1st to 5th of September. With the discovery of the Higgs boson and the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) providing collisions at the unprecedented energy of 13 TeV, high-energy physics has entered a new era. The main goals of the LHC are the detailed exploration of the Higgs properties and the extensive exploration of the energy frontier in the search for new physics beyond the Standard Model. At the LHC, uncertainties are dominated by strong interaction physics, Quantum Chromodynamics(QCD). Scientists from around the world will descend on QMUL to discuss the impressive progress of QCD in the last few years boosted by the requirements of LHC data.
