DIS / Soft QCD and Central Exclusive Production at LHCb

The forward acceptance of LHCb, 2.0 < y < 5.0, provides complementary reach to the general purpose detectors at the LHC for the study of Soft QCD processes. In addition, the installation of a series of scintillating pad detectors (Herschel), bracketing the LHCb detector along the beamline, for Run 2 of the LHC, with dedicated triggers, has significantly enhanced LHCb's sensitivity to central exclusive production (CEP). Recent LHCb measurements of the pp inelastic cross-section, minimum bias properties, and particle production in CEP will be presented. submitted to WG2
