An IRIS-HEP Blueprint Workshop

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.
