In 2017 the HEP Software Foundation produced a roadmap white paper on the software and computing challenges that will be faced during the next decade.
The CWP Roadmap can still be signed by members of the community who endorse it. Please use contact the CWP Ghost Writers to add your name. We very much encourage you to do this, to show the breadth of the community’s support for the roadmap.
The roadmap summarised reports from fourteen working groups who studied the challenges in their sub-domains. All of the reports produced during the Community White Paper process are listed below. Working groups are in the process of finalising and uploading their work to arXiv.

This is a list of talks about the CWP Roadmap that were given by various HSF members:
A historical page is maintained that describes in more detail the process that the community took to arrive at the final outcome.
