ICHEP announcement – a caveat

The “International Conference on High Energy Physics” happening in Paris on 20-21 September is unrelated to CERN and to the regular ICHEP conferences

The Scientific Information Service has recently been made aware of an "International Conference on High Energy Physics (ICHEP001 - 15.)", which is scheduled to take place in Paris on 20-21 September 2021.

According to information available on the conference website, the proceedings of the conference will be published in a special issue of a periodical named "World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology - Physical and Mathematical Sciences" (ISSN : 1307-6892) . 

Please note that this conference should not be confused with the International Conference on Particle Physics (ICHEP) many of you know and enjoy every two years, organised by the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP).

The 41st ICHEP, organised by IUPAP and hosted by INFN (Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare, will take place on 6-13 July 2022 in Bologna. No ICHEP conference is scheduled in 2021.

The publisher "World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology" and its journals appear on the Beall's list as a "potentially predatory" publisher. For a definition of "predatory journal" please refer to this Nature article.
