The PyHEP workshops are a new series of workshops initiated and supported by the HEP Software Foundation (HSF) with the aim to provide an environment to discuss and promote the usage of Python in the HEP community at large. Further information is given here.

This first workshop, held just before the start of the CHEP 2018 conference, will focus on a review of where and how Python is used in our community, and what the future will hold. The workshop will also be a forum for the participants, representatives of the community, to discuss topics around the areas of work identified in the HSF Community White Paper. There will be ample time for discussion.

A keynote presentation on JupyterLab will be given by Vidar Tonaas Fauske, a member of the developers team.

The conference takes place in the Hilton Hotel in Sofia, opposite the main CHEP venue.
