During this event — which will take place over two days — we will review the CERN openlab projects carried out in the first year of our sixth three-year phase, with technical discussion of recent progress made. 

Talks will be organised into sessions focused on the four R&D topics set out in CERN openlab's recent white paper: (1) data centre technologies and infrastructures, (2) computing performance and software, (3) machine learning and data analytics, (4) applications in disciplines beyond high-energy physics. There will be an additional fifth session of talks at the workshop, centred on the topic of quantum computing.

The latest technical posters from the CERN openlab projects will also be presented at the event.
