Abstract Forward (di)jet measurements are a useful tool to constrain the Parton Distribution Functions (PDFs) at low values of parton momentum fraction x, and to study the possible onset of BFKL or gluon saturation QCD evolutions in the proton. We present studies of jet reconstruction capabilities in the CMS Hadron Forward (HF) calorimeter (3<|eta|<5). The expected sensitivity of the inclusive forward jet p_T spectrum to the proton PDF, as well as the azimuthal decorrelation of Mueller-Navelet jets with a large rapidity separation are presented for p-p collisions at sqrt{s} = 14 TeV.
