Workshop focussing on service needs for initial data taking: commissioning, calibration and alignment, early physics.
Target audience: all active sites plus experiments
We start with a detailed update on the schedule and operation of the accelerator for 2007/2008, followed by similar sessions from each experiment.
The main thrust of this workshop will be to understand the status of the WLCG Services with respect to the 2007 / 2008 requirements, in particular the 'residual services' discussed at the January 2007 workshop.
We also review the status / plans of the Dress Rehearsals and initial running.
BOF sessions are foreseen in the following areas:
The capacities of the rooms are as follows:
Experiences from sites/experiments operating the FTS servers
Deployment of 'residual' (data management) services:
Where are we with respect to the plan established in July?
Update on the schedule, status of testing, plans for immediate future, milestones etc.
Experience with site setup and configuration according to LHC experiments' requirements. Experience from early adopters / beta-testers from SRM v2.2 and related deployment.
This session will discuss the requirements and schedule for such an exercise.
