Physics Department Summer Lectures

"From Raw Data to Physics Results"

Presented by Paul Laycock

Friday, July 26, 2019, 12:30 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

Modern nuclear and particle physics experiments generate huge amounts of data that need to be calibrated, processed and analysed so that we can extract and publish physics results. In this talk I will describe the journey of data, from the bits that leave the detectors through its transformation into well-understood physics objects that are analysed by physicists all over the world. We will look in particular at how this exabyte scale problem requires computing and software solutions that operate on a global scale, and take a look at the challenges that still lie ahead of us.
