The HSF had a great CHEP 2018. We organised the highly successful PyHEP Workshop in advance of CHEP.
   At CHEP itself the HSF Comminity White Paper was mentioned in many, many talks and Michel Jouvin gave a great plenary talk that went beyond the CWP to describe the next steps for HEP Software and Computing.
   Important common software projects featured highly as well, with a fine talk on common tracking software from Andi Salzburger.


We organise many activities, from our working groups, to organising events, to supporting projects as HSF projects, and helping communication within the community through our discussion forums, technical notes and a knowledge base.
