26-28 January, 2009
Experiments close to the end of the data taking initiate with this workshop a common reflection on data persistency and long term analysis in order to get a common vision on these issues and create a multi-experiment dynamics for further reference. It is foreseen that the workshop is a starting point for intense consultations and common work on defined subject. A second follow-up workshop will take place mid 2009.
The objectives of the workshop are:
*Review and document the physics objectives of the data persistency in HEP.
*Exchange information concerning the analysis model: abstraction, software, documentation etc. and identify coherence points.
*Address the harware and software persistency status
*Review possible fundings programs and other related international initiatives.
*Converge to a common set of specifications in a document that will constitute the basis for future collaborations.
This workshop is an expert level meeting and the participation is by invitation only.
