We are pleased to announce the second “Python in HEP” workshop organised by the HSF. The PyHEP, “Python in HEP”, workshops aim to provide an environment to discuss and promote the usage of Python in the HEP community at large. PyHEP 2019 will be held in Abingdon, near Oxford, United Kingdom, from 16-18 October 2019.

The workshop will be a forum for the participants and the community at large to discuss developments of Python packages and tools, exchange experiences, and steer where the community needs and wants to go. There will be ample time for discussion.

The agenda will be composed of plenary sessions, a highlight of which is the following:

  1. A keynote presentation from the Data Science domain.
  2. A topical session on histogramming including a talk and a hands-on tutorial.
  3. Lightning talks from participants.
  4. Presentations following up from topics discussed at PyHEP 2018.
