The current LHC physics program is enabled by an elaborate software ecosystem. The planned major hardware upgrades for the HL-LHC, and its planned physics program, will require significant evolution of this ecosystem.
Multiple R&D efforts must be coordinated to achieve coherence and alignment between a multitude of stakeholders and effort providers, US and international. Strong DOE/NSF partnerships will be required. A joint blueprint activity is critical to building this coordination.
This workshop builds on the Mini-workshop on HL-LHC Software and Computing R&D held at the Catholic University of America in November, 201, and brings together the U.S. stakeholders and projects which will be contributing to the R&D program to prepare the computing models and systems for the HL-LHC era.
This event is current in the planning stage. It will take place in the Washington DC area, and the exact venue will be announced when known.
|This 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. The Institute for Research and Innovation in Software (IRIS-HEP) is also providing support for this workshop via National Science Foundation Cooperative Agreement OAC-1836650.|
