Scientific Programme

BiG Data Beyond Moore’s Law, coming to terms with Moore-less cores, ever increasing data volumes, and managing more resources without using more people. That's the theme of this CHEP Conference. With dedicated tracks on data acquisition, trigger and controls; event processing, simulation and analysis; distributed processing and data handling; data stores, data bases and storage systems; software engineering, parallelism & multi-core programming; and a track on facilities, production infrastructures, networking and collaborative tools.

The scientific program of CHEP 2013 will consist of plenary sessions with invited oral presentations, a number of parallel sessions comprising oral and poster presentations, and an industrial exhibition. The plenary sessions will occupy the five mornings of the conference and the parallel sessions will be held on 4 afternoons. Contributions are solicited in the form of abstracts and the Program Committee, with the help of the International Advisory Committee, will use these to finalize the program.
