Register here for IEEE eScience (workshop name "Generic components of the HEP eScience ecosystem")

At the high energy and cosmic frontiers of physics, the challenges facing us in dealing with measured and reference data sets are two regular twins: size as well as complexity. By combining the quantitative statistics methods of HEP with generic pattern-matching algorithms, machine learning, and the advances in vectorisation that benefit both GPU and massive multi-processor programming, we stand a chance of dealing with the next generation experiments - if we manage the complex task of integrating these generic components in the large existing scientific code base and sustain them for the next decades: as much of a challenge as developing the (very promising) methods and tools in the first place!

Workshop Programme

Session 1 (09.00 - 10.30): building software as an infrastructure

Session 2 (11.00 - 12.30): building the components

Session 3 (13.30 - 15.00): scaling the services for the next decade

The Generic Components workshop is orgasised by the Nikhef Physics Data Processing group for advanced computing for research.
