The Physics Data Processing programme at Nikhef
The ‘Grid Computing’ activities at Nikhef has been running successfully for twelve years, if we take the start of the EU DataGrid project (January 2001) as the program start. The initial group activities were motivated by the needs of HEP computing, and the interest of the then-current group members. Later these activities were expanded to include middleware development as well as collaboration with non-HEP researchers, motivated by the successes of initial ad-hoc projects and collaborations, as well as (for the non-HEP collaborations) our desire to generate enough interest in a shared national e-infrastructure for science to make it a reality.
In 2013, we ‘officially’ started the Physics Data Processing programme - the Nikhef research programme for enabling technologies in advanced computing, networking, and deployable algorithms for research.
