International Conference on
COMPUTING IN HIGH ENERGY AND NUCLEAR PHYSICS
February 7 - February 11, 2000 - Padova, Italy
The CHEP 2000 web site is now ready
to accept registrations and abstract submissions.
To register you can navigate through the CHEP 2000 site or go
directly to registration page
To submit an abstract you can go directly to
This is the Bulletin n.2, if you missed the previous bulletins you can
find them on the web page bulletins
As mentioned in Bulletin n.1 that was circulated to the general CHEP 2000
list, the deadlines have been fixed as follows:
As you can notice the deadline for abstract is very close. Please
submit your abstract as soon as possible.
|- Deadline for Abstracts:
||October, 15th 1999 is no longer valid.
!! The new deadline is November, 7th 1999 !!
See bulletin #3.
|- Author Notification:
||November, 27th 1999
|- Deadline for papers:
||January, 15th 2000
2. CONTRIBUTED PAPERS
Contributed papers can be of two types:
Please let us remind you again the deadlines: in order to be printed on
the Cd-Rom, short and long papers should all be ready by January 15th.
Three months after the conference is the time allowed only to the
long paper versions intended to be published on a peer reviewed journal.
Contributed abstracts will be evaluated by the Organizing Committee and
accepted for presentation or rejected. Due to time constraints some
authors will be asked to present their contribution in form of a poster.
- Short Paper (3-4 pages)
These contributed papers:
- will be published online on the Chep 2000 web site
- will be printed in the papery proceeding distributed at the conference
- will be distributed on the CD together with multi-media presentation add-on (e.g. PowerPoint)
- Long Paper (10-15 pages)
If requested by author, these contributions will be moreover published
on a special edition of a peer reviewed journal. These papers have to meet
the standards required for a journal and will undergo the usual review
of the editor referees. The deadline for the final version of the
long paper is three months after the conference.
NOTICE: Long papers' authors should specify in advance, on the
abstract submission web page, their intention or not to publish on
a peer reviewed journal.
3. CONFERENCE MAIN THEME
After several years that the High Energy and Nuclear Physics Community has
decided to abandon the old computing paradigm, it is now time to evaluate the
impact of the modern computing technologies and methodologies in running,
ready to run and future experiments. It is time to make an in depth review of
what has been achieved with OO, successes and difficulties and to discuss how
our community should proceed in the future.
Standardization and reuse of components are key issues that the HEP comunity
should debate. At the same time the new technologies allow new computing models to be
developed. A lot of new ideas are around on how to develop distributed
computing. Some of them are already being tested by new experiments and
development project. It is time to review in depth the turning point of
the HENP computing in the emerging technology.
