Approximately 600 computing experts and scientists are expected to attend CHEP 2018.
CHEP 2018 will address challenges in data‐intensive experimental and computational science to stress the increasing importance of the computing‐related connections between high‐energy and nuclear physics and data‐intensive astronomy, X‐ray science and computational science.
CHEP 2018 will be held in the National Palace of Culture, Sofia!
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.
