Nov 9 – 13, 2015
US/Pacific timezone

This technical interchange meeting will look at the ongoing framework developments, what we should be doing in software infrastructure, how simulation, digitisation and reconstruction will evolve in the next few years towards Run3.

We intend for this meeting to be discussion-rich, rather the full of talks and also to have room for discussion of more radical solutions and possibly disruptive changes.

Note that in addition to the general plenary sessions (Mon-Wed) rooms are available for smaller dedicated breakouts and hackathons Thursday and Friday. Sessions are definitely planned for the Kaggle Tracking Challenge and for the new framework. All participants are encouraged to stay and further proposals are very welcome.
