International Conference on


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 submission page

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:

- Deadline for Abstracts: October, 15th 1999 is no longer valid.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
As you can notice the deadline for abstract is very close. Please submit your abstract as soon as possible.

Contributed papers can be of two types:

  • 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.
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.

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.
