Scientific Programme

The workshop builds bridges between computer science, experimental and theoretical physics in three topical areas.

Although mainly focusing on high-energy physics, talks related to nuclear physics, astrophysics, laser and condensed matter physics, earth physics, biophysics and other physics sciences, are most welcome.

Plenary talks are for 30 minutes with 5 minutes for questions. Parallel talks are for 20 minutes with 5 additional minutes for questions.

There will also be a poster session. The recommended format of the posters is A0. The board size is 125cm (w) x 185cm (h).
