Scientific Program

The 2023 conference will follow the normal CHEP format of plenary and parallel sessions.

The call for abstracts will open 16 August 2022 and will close on 17 November 2022. Exceptional contributions may be proposed for promotion to a plenary talk by the Program Committee. All accepted talks and posters will be allocated space in the published proceedings of CHEP 2023. The proceedings will be published in an open access journal after papers have been peer reviewed under the supervision of the Program Committee.


Abstract acceptance notifications should occur after 19 December 2022.

  • Parallel talks are allotted a total time of 15 minutes, including questions.
  • Plenary talks are allotted a total time of 30 minutes, including questions.
  • Oral presentation slides should be prepared in 16:9 widescreen format.
  • Posters are requested to be in A0 portrait format (841 mm W x 1189 mm H). Posters will be on display the day before and of their poster session. Posters will be recycled if not picked up prior to after their session. Tuesday Poster Session should be prepared to bring their poster on Monday and find their assigned positions. Thursday Poster Session may begin to set up their posters on Wednesday morning.

All accepted talks and posters will be allocated space in the peer-reviewed proceedings of CHEP 2023. The paper submission and review will be scheduled after the conference. Please refer to the conference Indico site for detailed speaker instructions.

Abstract guidelines (Abstract Submission opens 16 August 2022!)

Selection of talks and posters will be made on the basis of submitted abstracts. Parallel talks and posters will be organized in twelve tracks, as indicated in the table below. The Program Committee will decide which contributions will become oral presentations, and which become posters. Exceptional contributions may be proposed for promotion to a plenary talk by the Program Committee.

  • The recommended length of your abstract is 150-250 words, but there is no hard limit.
  • Submitters of abstracts are required to select an appropriate track; optionally a second choice of track can be indicated; an abstract will be assigned by the reviewers to only one track.
  • Consider carefully the track to which you wish to submit your paper - submitting to the wrong track will slow down the process.
  • If you would like your abstract to be considered for promotion to a plenary talk, please indicate that.
  • If you have difficulty selecting a track from the list, please send an email to explaining the problem.

Submitters are also asked to make sure that their email addresses and those of the proposed presenters are their primary email addresses.
