CWP Data Analysis and Interpretation WG meeting

Mark Stephen Neubauer (Univ. Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) , Oliver Gutsche (Fermi National Accelerator Lab. (US)) , Torre Wenaus (Brookhaven National Laboratory (US))
Mark, Torre and I are trying to follow up on the discussions we had in San Diego and get the Data Analysis and Interpretation CWP writing process started. Lets get together and discuss the next steps. If we don't manage next week, I will extend the poll and contact you again.

* attendance:
    * Liz, Mark, Pete, OLI

* deliverables for the CPW analysis group
    1. Working version of the charge
    2. Working outline of the CWP
    3. Working list of R&D projects that are the outcome of the process
    4. Content that answers the charge
    5. Content that we want to put into the CWP

* Guiding principle for analysis group CWP process
    * Functionality not Technology!

* goal of CWP analysis group
    * define roadmap and R&D projects 
    * goal is not to develop final implementation plan for analysis for HL-LHC era

* time schedule and goals
    * work: white papers, meetings and encouraging individuals to contribute
        * conclude on charge (synthesize the google docs) and derive outline and working list of R&D projects
        * invite white papers and collect contributions through meetings and the google docs
        * develop skeleton of content for paper
    * May 22-24, 2017: HEP Analysis Ecosystem Retreat
        * at the workshop, we want to discuss a skeleton of the paper content and through discussion refine the skeleton and through a formal talk close to the end of the workshop encourage more contributions of interested parties
    * June 26-30, 2017: HEP Software Foundation Workshop
        * complete version of content that answers the charge and defines the CWP analysis contribution
    * work: write CWP paper contribution
        * deadline: Fall 2017

* May 22-24, 2017: HEP Analysis Ecosystem Retreat
    * organized by Liz, Pete, Torre
    * goal
        * short term plans for ROOT
        * medium term strategy for ROOT
            * more people to contribute to root
            * question of direction
        * evolutionary strategy/visions for 2026
            * Alternative solutions to ROOT
            * What will ROOT's role be on HL-LHC timescales?
    * CWP analysis group plan for retreat, asking for
        * discussion session to talk about skeleton and possible additions (community work)
        * formal talk near the end of workshop (community information)
* action items
    * first shot at synthesizing google docs into working charge 
        * OLI
        * by OSG All Hands meeting (March 6-8)
    * personalized group email to everyone in the pods from SDSC to encourage sign up for google groups
        * OLI
    * chat during OSG All Hands meeting (March 6-8)
        * Pete, Liz, Mark, OLI and others
    * organize next meeting when working charge exists
        * good day/time would be Wednesday's at 4 PM CERN time

      Speakers: Mark Stephen Neubauer (Univ. Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) , Oliver Gutsche (Fermi National Accelerator Lab. (US)) , Torre Wenaus (Brookhaven National Laboratory (US))

      Start the discussion on how to write a roadmap for analysis:

      • Starting point is the google docs from the SDSC workshop:
      • Need to discuss how to proceed, possibilities:
        • Split up document into chapters / logical units and look for people responsible for one of these units?
        • Ask for white papers from the community to outline their thoughts and ideas for the future of analysis and then combine them into a document?
      • Talk about HEP Analysis Ecosystem Retreat
        • 22-24 May, 2017
