The ACAT Workshop series has a long tradition starting in 1990 (Lyon, France), and takes place in intervals of a year and a half. Formerly these workshops were known under the name AIHENP (Artificial Intelligence for High Energy and Nuclear Physics). These workshops are mainly focused to bring together experimental and theoretical high energy physicists and computer scientists, in order to exchange knowledge and experience in computing system architectures, algorithms for data analysis, and algorithms and extended calculations in high energy physics. In addition, contributions in theoretical high energy physics (including lattice calculations), nuclear physics, astrophysics, condensed matter physics, seismology, and others, are very welcome.
The 17th edition of ACAT aims to once again bring together computer science researchers and practitioners, and researchers from particle and nuclear physics, astronomy and astrophysics and accelerator science to explore and confront the boundaries of computing, of automated data analysis as well as theoretical calculation technologies. It will create a forum for exchanging ideas among the fields and will explore and promote cutting-edge computing, data analysis and theoretical calculation technologies in fundamental physics research.
