Recently, the US National Science Foundation funded a new Research Coordination Network project titled “FAIROS-HEP”. The project aims to connect groups of researchers thinking about FAIR data in HEP and other experts in this field to envision a more cohesive infrastructure around data and publications in HEP. By focusing on FAIR data practices and how data and software can be linked to physics results, we hope to build a network of researchers thinking about how we can create a “living publication” to preserve and extend physics results. The project includes some funding for building infrastructure as well as future workshops connecting groups.
This is our kick-off workshop, located at CERN.
The goals of the workshop will be to:
1. Assess progress by each experiment in producing reusable data,
2. Establish updated ideas regarding the use cases for data access,
interoperability, and reuse across the different experiments and
3. Define what data and associated information supports the use cases, and
4. Identify a preliminary set of access methods and infrastructure that would support these use cases.
We look forward to engaging with you in this project.
