Registration now open

Dear HEPiX Community,

as of today it is possible to register for the HEPiX autumn workshop in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, held from 14th to 18th October 2019.

The workshop will be held at the Amsterdam Science Park Congress Centre and is hosted by Nikhef.

There is a room capacity limit of 150 participants and it is first come, first served, so register soon!

Early registrants also benefit from the ‘early birds’ fee of €200 instead of the full fee of €300. The deadline for early birds registration is 15th August 2019.

Thanks to our generous sponsors we will have a social event on Monday 14th October and a Conference dinner on Wednesday 16th October free of charge. Registrants who wish to bring a partner to the Conference dinner can indicate this on the registration form at an additional charge of €50.

The abstract submission has opened as well and we encourage participants to contribute to the programme.

As a reminder, an ARC-CE workshop is planned for Friday 18th October in the afternoon. And starting Monday 21th October, a Security Operations Centre (SOC) workshop will be held at Nikhef. It is expected that security-related issues will be covered late during the HEPiX workshop to ease participation to both HEPiX and the SOC workshop.

If you have any questions, please contact the local organizing committee (hepix-2019autumn-support@hepix.org). We are looking forward to seeing you in Amsterdam in October!

Dear HEPiX Community,

I am pleased to announce that the HEPiX autumn 2019 workshop will be held in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, from 14th to 18th October 2019. The workshop will take place at the Amsterdam Science Park Congress Centre, hosted by Nikhef, the Dutch national institute for subatomic physics. Mark your calendars!

We are looking forward to a productive and informative meeting, and we encourage previous and new participants to submit abstracts and contribute to the programme.

Information about the logistics is already available under
https://indico.cern.ch/e/hepix-autumn2019/

The registration and abstract submission will open soon; a short message will be sent as soon as you can register and submit abstracts.

While not part of the official HEPiX programme, I should like to point out that on Friday 18th October in the afternoon, a workshop on the ARC-CE is planned. Starting Monday 21th October, a Security Operations Centre (SOC) workshop will be held; it is expected that security-related issues will be covered late during the HEPiX workshop to ease participation to both HEPiX and the SOC workshop.

HEPiX workshops have been held regularly since 1991 to bring together worldwide Information Technology staff, physicists and managers from High Energy Physics, Nuclear Physics and other science laboratories, institutes and universities such as BNL, CERN, DESY, FNAL, IN2P3, INFN, JLAB, KEK, NIKHEF, PIC, RAL, SLAC, TRIUMF and many other labs and universities. The main purpose of the HEPiX semi-annual workshops is to foster a learning and sharing experience for physicists and IT specialists in scientific high-performance and data-intensive computing disciplines.

If you have any questions, please contact the local organizing committee (hepix-2019autumn-support@hepix.org).

We are looking forward to seeing you in Amsterdam in October!

Best Regards,


Dennis van Dok (Nikhef), on behalf of the local organisers
