the past few years, a strong cooperation activity has grown up
between Chinese and French scientists involved in the LHC
experimental program. Numerous scientists have traveled on both
side and spent weeks of work in each country. Cooperation
programs have been set up on the preparation of physics analysis
as well as on the installation of the required tools from
analysis software to computing grid deployment.
need for regular forum between those scientists has appeared as
a way to structure and stabilize these cooperation works.
Therefore, to address this need, it has been found useful to
start a series of annual workshop, alternatively in each
country, which will allow Chinese and French scientists to
present and discuss their view on the common work done and to be
done. The main purpose of the workshop is to foster and develop
cooperation between French and Chinese scientists on different
issues related to the LHC scientific program as well as the
deployment of associated computing grids.
first Chinese French workshop will be held at the Institute of
High Energy Physics (IHEP).
