The 26th International Conference on Computing in High Energy and Nuclear Physics (CHEP), organized by Jefferson Lab, took place in Norfolk, Virginia, from 5–11 May 2023. The conference hosted roughly 600 registered participants from 28 different countries.

The CHEP conference series began in 1985 and has grown to become the largest of its kind, providing the unique opportunity for computing experts across particle and nuclear physics to come together and learn from each other.

The focus of the CHEP conference evolves along with the ever-changing technologies and major scientific initiatives. Plenary sessions feature broad topics in related scientific and computing disciplines to ensure a broad and thoughtful program that engages the full community. This edition of the conference placed special emphasis on high-performance data organization, management, and access (DOMA), a topic of interest and relevance throughout the scientific community. Other highlights included the impressive rise of AI/ML applications and supporting technologies throughout the entire computing chain, from detector systems through multi-modal data analysis.
