The CHEP conferences address the computing, networking and software issues for the world’s leading data‐intensive science experiments that currently analyze hundreds of petabytes of data using worldwide computing resources. The Conference provides a unique opportunity for computing experts across Particle and Nuclear Physics to come together to learn from each other and typically attracts over 500 participants. The event features plenary sessions, parallel sessions, and poster presentations; it publishes peer-reviewed proceedings.
The focus of the conference evolves with time to highlight changing technologies and major scientific initiatives. Through the plenary sessions, related scientific and computing topics are presented to ensure a broad and thoughtful program that engages the community. This edition of the conference will place special emphasis on high-performance data organization, management, and access (DOMA), a topic of interest and relevance throughout the scientific community.
The nine parallel session tracks focus on specific topics and often have very animated discussions on the technical merits of various approaches. Birds of a feather sessions promote international communities of common interest.
