Initial INFN input on the update of the European Strategy for Particle Physics: software and computing

Not scheduled
Instrumentation and computing


The INFN sees two major areas of application for high energy physics computing in the time scale relevant for the Strategy Update: the exploitation of high performance computing (HPC) and the use of Quantum Computing. The first one can be realized within few years, with high energy physics experiments becoming major users of HPC. Quantum computing is still at the level of research and development, but it can be the new disruptive technology changing the computing horizon. The exploitation of the former and the research and development of the latter are described in the document.
