The Institute for Research and Innovation in Software in High Energy Physics (IRIS-HEP) is a software institute funded by the National Science Foundation. It aims to develop the state-of-the-art software cyberinfrastructure required for the challenges of data intensive scientific research at the High Luminosity Large Hadron Collider (HL-LHC) at CERN, and other planned HEP experiments of the 2020’s. These facilities are discovery machines which aim to understand the fundamental building blocks of nature and their interactions.
The IRIS-HEP project was funded on 1 September, 2018, and is ramping up its activities. This kickoff workshop brings together members of the IRIS-HEP team to initiate the activities which will be pursued in the first years of the Institute.
|The IRIS-HEP project is supported by National Science Foundation cooperative agreement OAC-1836650.|
