The current status of the LHC machine and the experiments, especially the general-purpose experiments, will be given. Also discussed will be the preparations for the physics run in 2008. The prospects for physics, with an emphasis on what can be expected with an integrated luminosity of 1 fb-1, will be outlined.
Les Robertson (CERN)
The talk will review the progress so far in setting up the distributed computing services for LHC data handling and analysis and look at some of the challenges we face when the real data begins to flow.
Dr Ian Fisk (FERMILAB)
Sylvain Chapeland (CERN)
The CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is one of the most awesome science tool ever built. To fully exploit the potential of this great instrument, a huge design and development effort has been initiated in order to ensure that measurements can optimally flow out from the detectors in terms of quantity, selectivity, and integrity, be accessible for online monitoring and be recorded for...
496. Power, Density, Reliability & Performance: customer-driven evolution of cluster computing and storage, in high energy physics and other scientific fields.
Dr Eng Lim Goh (SGI)
Cluster systems now comprise 50% to 90% of the High Performance Computing (HPC) market. However, with computing and storage needs outpacing Moore's law, the traditional approach of scaling is giving rise to facility, administrative and performance issues. Details of industry trends and unmet customer requirements for cluster computing will be presented. Implications on systems and...

IBM's Blue Gene/L system had demonstrated that it is now feasable to run applications at sustained performances of 100's of teraflops. The next generation Blue Gene/P system is designed to scale up to a peak performance of 3.6 Petaflops. This talk will look at some of the key application successes already achieved at the 100TF scale. It will then address the emerging petascale...

Mr Laurence Field (CERN)
Over recent years a number of grid projects have emerged which have built grid infrastructures that are now the computing backbones for various user communities. A significant number of these user communities are artificially limited to only one grid due the different middleware used in each grid project. Grid interoperation is trying to bridge these differences and enable virtual...

Harvey Newman (California Institute of Technology (CALTECH))
Networks of sufficient and rapidly increasing end-to-end capability, as well as a high degree of reliability are vital for the LHC and other major HEP programs. Our bandwidth usage on the major national backbones and intercontinental links used by our field has progressed by a factor of several hundred over the past decade, and the outlook is for a similar increase over the next decade. This...
S. Pawlowski (Intel)
Dozens of cores will not be a dream. Multiple processor cores drive energy efficient performance for highly parallel applications. However, looking beyond cores, achieving balanced high performance throughput has many challenges. Intel Senior Fellow and CTO of Digital Enterprise Group Steve Pawlowski will provide his technology vision to address bandwidth, capacity and power needs on...
Mr Sverre Jarp (CERN)
In the CERN openlab we have looked at how well LHC software matches the execution capabilities of current and, to some extent, future processors. Thanks to current silicon processes, transistor counts in the billions (10^9) have become commonplace and microprocessor manufacturers have been deploying transistors in multiple ways to increase performance. In this talk I will review the...

Dietrich Liko: Dietrich Liko is researcher at the Institute for High Energy Physics of the Austrian Academy of Sciences. He is currently on leave to participate in the devlopement of analysis tools for the grid with the EGEE project and as ATLAS Distributed Analysis Coordinator.
Dr Amber Boehnlein (FERMI NATIONAL ACCELERATOR LABORATORY)
Peter Tenenbaum (SLAC)
The Global Design Effort for the International Linear Collider (ILC) has made use of modern computing capabilities in a number of areas: modeling the desired (accelerating) and undesired (wakefields, RF deflections) fields in the RF cavities, simulations of accelerator operations and tuning, prediction of accelerator uptime based on component performance and overall site design, and computer...
Dr Richard Mount (SLAC)
Dr Jamie Shiers (CERN)
This talk summarises the main discussions and issues raised at the WLCG Collaboration workshop held immediately prior to CHEP. The workshop itself will focus 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...
