High-Energy Physics & RIKEN Theory Seminar

"Preparing High Energy Physics Software for the Future - the Community White Paper"

Presented by Dr. Benedikt Hegner, CERN, Switzerland

Wednesday, February 28, 2018, 12:00 pm — Seminar Room, Bldg. 725

Particle physics has an ambitious and broad experimental program for the coming decades. This program requires large investments in detector hardware, either to build new facilities and experiments, or to upgrade existing ones. Similarly, it requires commensurate investment into R&D of software to acquire, manage, process, and analyses the shear amounts of data to be recorded. In planning for the High Luminosity LHC in particular, it is critical that all of the collaborating stakeholders agree on the software goals and priorities, and that their efforts complement each other. In this spirit, the High Energy Physics community has created a white paper (arXiv:1712.06982) to describe and define the R&D activities required in order to prepare for this software upgrade. This presentation describes the expected software and computing challenges, and the plans to address them that are laid out in the white paper.
