The scientific program of CHEP 2012 was comprised of of a plenary
session of invited oral presentations, a number of parallel sessions
comprising oral and poster presentations, and an industrial, academic
and research exhibition. The plenary session occupied the five
mornings of the conference, and the parallel sessions were held on three
afternoons. The program committee organized the scientific
program, and news on the final program schedule was published in

The WLCG scientific program is managed separately. Please see the
WLCG Indico page for more information.
The CHEP organizers also hosted the DPHEP meeting. Please see
this link for information on the scientific program.
The theme of the conference focussed on the processing of HEP
data at all stages, from the high level triggers that run on farms of
CPUs situated close to the experiment through to the final analyses
that use resources distributed worldwide. We drew on the
experience from running experiments and also to review the status of
new studies of the distributed computing models being made as part of
the LHC experimental program. Experts from the computing industry were
invited to give an insight into future technology trends for the
underlying computer fabrics, networks and software components.
The CHEP 2012 organizers will publish all accepted contributions
(both oral and poster presentations) in the conference proceedings.
The organizers have arranged to publish the proceedings electronically
in the Journal of Physics through IOP Publishing, about 2 months after
