Description

The ATLAS Experiment, with over 2000 collaborators, needs efficient and effective means of communicating information. The Collaboration has been using the TWiki Web at CERN for over three years and now has more than 7000 web pages, some of which are protected. This number greatly exceeds the number of “static” HTML pages, and in the last year, there has been a significant migration to the TWiki. The TWiki is one example of the many different types of Wiki web which exist. In this talk, a description will be given of the ATLAS TWiki at CERN. The tools used by the Collaboration to manage the TWiki will be described and some of the problems encountered will be explained. A very useful development has been the creation of a set of Workbooks (Users’ Guides) – these have benefitted from the TWiki environment and, in particular, a tool to extract pdf from the associated pages.
