40th International Conference on High Energy physics

ICHEP2020 - (other ichep conferences)
July 28 - August 6, 2020
Prague, virtual meeting

Our Czech particle physics community was very proud to be selected to organize the 40th ICHEP conference in Prague. Actually, it is a nice coincidence of two ICHEP jubilees as it is also exactly 70 years from the first ICHEP meeting in Rochester, New York in 1950. Prague is a city of stunning beauty and magnificent architecture. Hand in hand with culture, the tradition of science dates back to the 14th century when Charles IV established here one of the oldest universities in Europe. The list of famous scientists who have worked in Prague includes T. Brahe, J. Kepler, Ch. Doppler, B. Bolzano, E. Mach and A. Einstein. Z. Dolezal and R. Leitner, chairs of this conference, wanted to do their best to welcome all participants in a stimulating and pleasant environment. However, for the first time in its history we had to cancel this live event and did it only as a virtual conference. We had more than 3000 participants and around 1000 talks. We hope we again succeeded in bringing together experimentalists and theorists working in particle physics literally all around the world. Hopefully, it will be possible to welcome all participants in person again in Prague in 2024.
