The “International Conference on Computing in High Energy And  Nuclear Physics” (CHEP) is a biennial event that brings together researchers and practitioners in the field of computing for high-energy and nuclear physics. The conference covers topics such as data management, software engineering, machine learning, distributed computing, and quantum computing. CHEP is the largest conference in the world about these topics. The 26th edition of the conference took place from 8 to 12 May 2023 in Norfolk, US, and had close to 600 registered participants.

Among the many contributions to the conference, several were from the members of the Institute for Experimental Particle Physics (ETP) and the Steinbuch Centre for Computing (SCC) at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). The topics discussed by our teams include heterogenous computing, fast file streaming, efficient CPU usage at computing clusters, and neural network based calorimeter reconstruction. ETP PhD Student Lea Reuter won the “Best Poster” award for her her poster about “Graph Neural Network based Track Finding in the Central Drift Chamber at Belle II” - very well deserved, congratulations!
