The PyHEP workshops are a 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 on the PyHEP WG website.

PyHEP 2020 will be held in Austin (Texas), USA, on 11-13 July 2020. The workshop will take place in the same city as the SciPy 2020 conference on scientific computing in Python, and will slightly overlap in time with it, to facilitate inter-community exchanges. We encourage HEP participation in SciPy.

PyHEP 2020 will be a forum for the participants and the community at large to discuss developments of Python packages and tools, exchange experiences, and inform the future evolution of community activities. There will be ample time for discussion.
The agenda is under discussion. Broadly speaking, it will be composed of plenary sessions:
1) A keynote presentation.
2) Topical sessions.
3) Hands-on tutorials.
4) Presentations following up from topics discussed at PyHEP 2019.

Registration will open in Spring and we will provide detailed travel and accommodation information at that time. There will be *no* workshop fees, thanks to our sponsors.

Some partial travel support based on need is available for some USA/UK participants, in particular for students and postdocs. We thank IRIS-HEP, the University of Liverpool and the UK Software Sustainability Institute for this. Details on how to apply for these will be provided once registration opens.

You are encouraged to register to the PyHEP WG Gitter channel and/or to the HSF forum to receive further information concerning the organisation of the workshop. Workshop updates and information will also be shared on the workshop Twitter in addition to email. Follow the workshop @PyHEPConf and #PyHEP2020.
