2nd Workshop on adapting applications and computing services to multi-core and virtualization

Europe/Zurich

Description
Second workshop towards providing IT services which allow LHC experiment applications to exploit multi-core and virtualization capabilities. Applications being developed to exploit new hardware architectures and virtualization technology impose new requirements on the computing services provided by the local computer centers or by the Grids. The goals of this workshop are to review the progress of a number of follow-up actions identified in the first workshop, to get new feedback from the experiments and set directions for the two R&D work packages. Contacts: Pere Mato (CERN) , Predrag Buncic (CERN) , Vincenzo Innocente (CERN) , Denise Heagerty (CERN)
