Flow Oriented Perturbation Theory (FOPT) is a novel approach to Feynman diagrams based on the coordinate (position) space description of Quantum Field Theories (QFT). FOPT offers interesting features regarding the computation of higher-loop Feynman amplitudes such as combinatorial and canonical Feynman rules, explicit infrared singularity factorization on a per-diagram level and the potential to have manifest cancellation of real and virtual singularities. In these proceedings we briefly summarize the derivation of FOPT and present its Feynman rules for covariant diagrams, S-matrix elements and cut diagrams in massless scalar QFT, supported by examples. We then discuss the extension of FOPT to massless fermion fields and indicate steps towards the treatment of massive lines in arbitrary dimensions.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
