DPHEP stands for "Data Preservation in HEP" and is an International Collaboration of Institutes, Experiments, Funding agencies and other interested parties to implement the recommendations of the DPHEP study group. These are detailed in the Blueprint document available on the DPHEP website.
As with the former study group of the same name, DPHEP reports to ICFA.

This is the community/IT meeting regarding the use of Drupal at CERN. See the ENTICE web site for more details.
The HEPiX forum brings together worldwide Information Technology staff, including system administrators, system engineers, and managers from the High Energy Physics and Nuclear Physics laboratories and institutes, to foster a learning and sharing experience between sites facing scientific computing and data challenges. Participating sites include BNL, CERN, DESY, FNAL, IN2P3, INFN, JLAB, NIKHEF, RAL, SLAC, TRIUMF and many others. The HEPiX organization was formed in 1991, and its semi-annual meetings are an excellent source of information and sharing for IT experts in scientific computing.
|IT Departmental meetings||
The IT Departmental meetings occur at the start of every new year. The aim is to bring IT Staff up-to-date with events from the previous year, and look at plans and direction of IT for the coming year.
|IT Lightning Talks (ITLT)||
IT Lightning Talks (ITLT) are regular sessions of 5-10 short presentations (maximum 5 minutes long) on any topic related to computing technology or to the IT department.
The goal is to have a lightweight, informal and open communication channel, where everyone can share experience, seek advice, propose ideas, find others interested, brainstorm, team-up... and maybe create the next IT revolution!
|IT Management Meeting (ITMM)||

|IT Technical Forum (ITTF)||
A technical meeting for all IT staff reviewing ongoing activities and upcoming projects within the department and elsewhere.
|IT Technical Users Meeting (ITUM)||
This meeting provides a technical update on IT department services, including ‘heads-up’ information on future plans. It is aimed at technical experts within CERN's Experiments and User Communities. The meeting goals are to:
This is not a decision-making meeting however feedback raised, either at the meeting or directly to the meeting Chair, is passed to IT Management. Where relevant, follow-up discussions will be organised on specific topics, either using existing meeting structures or on an ad-hoc basis.
|Scientific Information Policy Board (SIPB)||
Agrees policy and strategic directions for Library and CDS
