We are proud to announce the 11th biannual workshop, “Continuous Advances in QCD” (CAQCD_2016) sponsored by the William I. Fine Theoretical Physics Institute (FTPI) at the University of Minnesota. This event will be held in Minneapolis from Thursday, May 12th, to Sunday, May 15th, 2016.

In maintaining our good tradition, we plan to bring together theorists whose research is focused on a large variety of topics at the cutting edge of QCD and general gauge theories. Building on the success of the previous workshops, we will combine broad review presentations with discussion sessions and original talks. We expect this to be an enjoyable and stimulating event, bringing lavish fruits in terms of physics results.

Participation in the event is by invitation only. We welcome participation of graduate students. Please contact us with any questions by email at qcd (at)
