Expanding software collaboration beyond HEP: pros, cons, dos and donts
- Gordon Watts (University of Washington (US))
- HEP computing has been innovative in several areas and “reinvented the
wheel” in others
Our record of collaboration with others fields outside and of
rationalisation of effort inside leaves room for improvement
New architectures have to be exploited, but this makes software harder to
write & maintain, more collaboration is desirable / unavoidable
What to do to
o improve collaboration within HEP?
o extend collaboration outside HEP?
o break isolation?
o involve ACAT in this process?
o build links between ACAT and the Software Initiative discussed at CERN
o effective collaborate with industry?
