Similar to the very successful first edition of Sustainable HEP, the 2nd edition aims at discussing the transition to a sustainable future in the field of high-energy physics (HEP) and astro-particle physics (APP). To place our efforts into a broader context, the workshop includes presentations on the report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). In discussions, we plan to relate these to our fields of research, as well as hear about best-practise examples and sustainability initiatives in the university and research center context.
The workshop will take place from 3 to 7 pm CEST on Monday through Wednesday. The program will consist of impulse talks, panel discussions, input and discussion sessions, and asynchronous flash talks accompanied by a discussion forum on Mattermost. All talks will be recorded and made available to the participants for the duration of the workshop, so as to allow for participation from all time zones.
Call for contributions: If you wish to contribute to the workshop, we invite you to submit an abstract for a Flash Talk or a Best-practise example (please tick the corresponding box in the registration form and submit an abstract for your talk on the Call for Abstracts page).
Flash Talks are pre-recorded, up to 3 minutes long, can be created in teams. They will be played at the beginning of the session - usually in groups of two to three and afterwards a discussion with the submitters is possible for the shown talks together.
Best-practise examples are talks which will be given live during the workshop, if selected, and should be 10 mins long. They should discuss a particular best-practise example from the fields of HEP or APP, which demonstrates how substainability in science can be successfully implemented.
