Instrumentation, Computing and General Infrastructure

The science in future relies on the vitality and success of research and development of today. R&D in instrumentation has always been an important component of particle physics and a required driver for the discovery experiments of the future. In addition, particle physics has also stretched the boundaries of data intensive science to a global scale. The LHC experiments together with the worldwide GRID collaboration (WLCG) have demonstrated the power of an integrated computing infrastructure for data process and analysis.
We will examine the state of detector R&D in particle physics and the developments and challenges that face the field in computing. We will also examine the infrastructures for our science and the challenges of sustaining an experienced technical workforce and the large facilities required for detector construction.
