Bulletin 2

We are delighted to announce that the call for contributions to the 25th (virtual) CHEP conference, which will be held from 17-21 May 2021 is now open. We invite your submissions on advances in software and computing for the high-energy and nuclear physics field.

Submissions should consist of a paper of 6-10 pages, following the instructions for authors. Paper submission is open until 28 February 2021.

  • All relevant papers for the field that are scientifically sound will be accepted
    • In particular we strongly encourage submissions to vCHEP from early career researchers
  • Every accepted paper is guaranteed a slot at the conference, for at least a short presentation
  • Every accepted paper is eligible to be published in the conference proceedings
  • After the conference the papers can be revised, taking into account reviewer comments and the discussion at vCHEP
  • If desired by the authors or their experiment the initial paper versions can be kept confidential until the final versions are ready
  • A selection of the best papers, covering the most interesting and innovative R&D in the field, will be invited to give a longer presentation in general (plenary) sessions
    • We anticipate being able to have about 30 slots for these longer talks
  • Papers that cover an innovative topic in detail will be favoured over general review-type papers that summarise many items together
  • Some of the best plenary papers will be invited, at the authors’ discretion, to be put forward for full journal publication
