      Open questions and discussion


      • New organisational structure : CERN Organizing Committee with a representative of each LHC experiment : Markus, Hannes, Paolo and Barth.
      • Presentation of the proposal for the next ISOTDAQ 2018 : Vienna.


      • Remove "programming FPGAs with LabView" lab
      • Add lab "SoC FPGA" (Manoel)
      • Add secret lab on GPU (Gianluca Lamanna)
      • Therefore number of labs, number of students and number of days stays as planned.
      • Next meeting end of August / beginning September


      • Decide whether to ask NI if they want to send a lecturer or find a new lecturer for the LabView lecture. (COC)
      • Investigate a new partnership with a company (LOC)
      • Lecturers and tutors tell whether they can come (all)


      • Labs
        --> see the decisions above
      • LHC-centric or a generic school ?
        --> LHC oriented due to the lecturers and tutors but open to the world. We shall try to include some non-LHC elements in the lectures.
      • Reshuffle groups during the school to avoid having the "difficult" students always with the same people
        --> Difficult. If someone comes up with a working and simple algorithm we can discuss it further. The question is rather to filter better during the selection.
      • Programming : minimal level required.
        --> Home works did not 100% work in the past. Maybe add a programming (basic) question to the form ?
