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 a virtual workshop given the worldwide conditions related to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was meant to be held in Austin (Texas), USA, on 11-13 July 2020, co-locating with the SciPy 2020 conference on scientific computing in Python, will a slight overlap in time with it, to facilitate inter-community exchanges. We do encourage HEP participation in SciPy, which will also be a virtual event.

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 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 is open until July 10th. There will be *no* workshop fees.

We thank IRIS-HEP, the University of Liverpool, the Python Software Foundation, the UK Software Sustainability Institute and FNAL for their support.

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.
