Scientific Programme

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 is a major event in the area (~500 participants), featuring plenary sessions, parallel sections and poster presentations; it publishes peer-reviewed Proceedings. The parallel sessions are split into 8 separate tracks,listed below
