25th International Conference on Computing in High Energy & Nuclear Physics

In view of the uncertainties regarding international travel and large gatherings the CHEP organizers have made the decision to postpone the in-person CHEP Conference to May 16-20, 2022.  The conference will be held at the same venue a year later. This website will be updated with a new timeline and information on registration, sponsorships, and abstracts. We are discussing options for an additional virtual event in 2021. In the meantime, please mark your calendars to meet us in person in Norfolk, VA May 16-20, 2022.

Welcome to the website of the 25th International Conference on Computing in High Energy and Nuclear Physics.

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 provides a unique opportunity for computing experts across Particle and Nuclear Physics to come together to learn from each other and typically attracts over 500 participants. The event features plenary sessions, parallel sessions, and poster presentations; it publishes peer-reviewed proceedings.

The focus of the conference evolves with time to highlight changing technologies and major scientific initiatives. Through the plenary sessions, related scientific and computing topics are presented to ensure a broad and thoughtful program that engages the community. This edition of the conference will place special emphasis on high performance data organization, management, and access (DOMA), a topic of interest and relevance throughout the scientific community.

The nine parallel session tracks focus on specific topics and often have very animated discussions on technical merits of various approaches. Birds of a feather sessions promote international communities of common interest. 

The CHEP 2022 organizers are committed to fostering a supportive and diverse environment with opportunities for everyone. We take a positive attitude towards having full participation from the whole community and everybody in the field is encouraged to attend. Attendance of students at CHEP 2022 is strongly encouraged. A diversity event will be scheduled. 

The CHEP conference location rotates between the Americas, Asia and Europe, and is typically held eighteen months apart. The CHEP 2022 conference will be hosted by the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (Jefferson Lab) at the newly renovated Norfolk Marriott Waterside hotel in Norfolk, Virginia.

The conference will be held from Monday May 16, 2022 thru Friday May 22, 2022. Pre-conference workshops and/or short courses will be held on the prior weekend.

More information will be provided as the conference date approaches.
