In the first phase of operation, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, has probed the structure of matter at the TeV scale with unprecedented breadth and precision. In 2015 the LHC will resume operation near its design energy of 14 TeV, and will continue the quest for new physics through direct searches for new particles and through precision measurements of standard model processes and parameters. The full exploitation of the physics program of the LHC and the interpretation of the experimental measurements requires highly accurate calculations and simulations of scattering processes. The MIAPP workshop “Challenges, Innovations and Developments in Precision Calculations for the LHC” addresses higher-order QCD and electroweak radiative corrections, the resummation of large logarithmic corrections and the inclusion of higher-order effects into parton shower Monte Carlo programs.
