HEP Software Foundation Workshop

US/Pacific
Description

This workshop will take place at the San Diego Supercomputing Center (SDSC) and the University of California at San Diego (UCSD).

This HEP Software Foundation (HSF) workshop will focus in particular on the Community White Paper (CWP), A Roadmap for HEP Software and Computing R&D for the 2020s.

Realizing the physics programs of the planned and/or upgraded HEP experiments over the next 10 years will require the HEP community to address a number of challenges in the area of software and computing. It is expected that the computing models will need to evolve and a significant “software upgrade” is required to prepare. In order to identify and prioritize the software research and development investments required, we are now beginning a community planning process. The aim is to produce a Community White Paper (CWP) which will describe the community strategy and a roadmap for software and computing R&D in HEP for the 2020s. This activity is organised under the umbrella of the HSF. The LHC experiments and HSF have been specifically charged by the WLCG project and we are reaching out to other HEP experiments around the world to participate.

This HSF workshop at SDSC/UCSD will be the first workshop supporting the CWP process. There will be plenary sessions covering topics of general interest as well as parallel sessions for the many topical working groups in progress for the CWP.

Sponsors

This HSF event is being organised in part by the S2I2-HEP Conceptualization project, including travel support for some participants. The S2I2-HEP project is supported by National Science Foundation grants ACI-1558216, ACI-1558219, and ACI-1558233.
