The HEP Software Foundation facilitates cooperation and common efforts in High Energy Physics software and computing internationally.

Software Citation and Recognition

How do we cite software in HEP and how do we give people proper recognition? It's a vital question for our community.

The HSF and IRIS-HEP are organising a (virtual) mini-workshop to discuss just that, with discussion on current practices from the experiments, the view from developers, and also input from Zenodo and Inspire.

Register now for the workshop to give your input and help us to find out which practices would be most useful to bring our field and community forward.


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 and technical notes.

The HSF can also write letters of collaboration and cooperation to project proposals.
