The call for abstracts is now closed. Requests for late abstract submissions should be directed to the PC chairs at The email should include the proposed title, abstract text, and track.

Abstract acceptance notifications should occur between 10-20 June, 2019.

  • Parallel talks are allotted a total time of 15 minutes, including questions.
  • Plenary talks are allotted a total time of 30 minutes, including questions.
  • Oral presentation slides should be prepared in 16:9 widescreen format.
  • Posters are requested to be in A0 portrait format (841 mm W x 1189 mm H). They will be on display for the duration of the conference.
  • All accepted talks and posters will be allocated space in the peer-reviewed proceedings of CHEP 2019. The paper submission and review will be scheduled after the conference.
Please refer to the conference Indico site for detailed speaker instructions.

Abstract guidelines

Selection of talks and posters will be made on the basis of submitted abstracts. Parallel talks and posters will be organised in nine tracks, as indicated in the table below. The Programme Committee will decide which contributions will become oral presentations, and which ones posters. Exceptional contributions may be proposed for promotion to a plenary talk by the Programme Committee.

  • The recommended length of your abstract is 150-250 words, but there is no hard limit.
  • Submitters of abstracts are required to select the appropriate track; an abstract can be submitted to one track only.
  • Consider carefully the track to which you wish to submit your paper - submitting to the wrong track will slow down the process.
  • If you would like your abstract to be considered for promotion to a plenary talk, please indicate that.
  • If you have difficulty selecting a track from the list, please send an email to explaining the problem.

Submitters are also asked to make sure that their email addresses and those of the proposed presenters are their primary mail addresses in the CERN phonebook or, in the absence of such, their professional e-mail address.
