Survey and Follow-up

Many thanks to those of you who responded to the survey. We presented the results, as well as follow-up items and a discussion on future planning on Wednesday 17 June.


The HSF and WLCG have organised this virtual event to focus on the challenges and opportunities of new computing architectures. This is a critical and highly relevant topic for HEP where much progress is being made, but there remain many open questions to discuss.

Adapting to the needs of the communty to host more virtual participation events we will hold this meeting over 3 days, from 16-18h each day, to maximise the opportunity to participate.

Three themes will be addressed across the three days:

  • Application Software
  • Processing Frameworks
  • Validation and Accounting

We will be exploring new ways to interact effectively during events like these, with more emphasis on having material available early and the opportunity to raise discussion points in advance. Trying to organise meetings with a lower environmental footprint is a goal we have beyond the current situation.

Please register for the event if you would like to join - it will help a lot for our planning purposes.
