Description
Recent developments in computing and software architectures have resulted in huge potential for accelerating applications used in experimental particle physics. This is an ideal time to investigate how a significant performance boost can be achieved by the effective use of many-core and GPU architectures in a distributed computing environment, as well as utilising emerging I/O and storage technologies. This workshop aims to discuss what has been done so far in the field and what potential future development areas are feasible.
