About CHEP

The CHEP conferences are held at 18‐month intervals, rotating between the US, Europe and “rest of the world” locations. Recent conferences took place in Okinawa, Amsterdam and New York.

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 is a major event in the area (~500 participants), featuring plenary sessions, parallel sections and poster presentations; it publishes peer-reviewed Proceedings.

The Conference location rotates between Americas, Asia and Europe.
