Community White Paper (CWP) Working Groups

In October, 2016, the process of forming CWP working groups began. Working groups self-organized with some help from the HEP experiment software/computing coordinators and the HSF startup team. Charges were formulated to describe the challenges in that area and questions which need to be answered to produce a roadmap for the CWP.

The working group charges and working group document should be world-visible for reading. Please join the hsf-community-white-paper Google group if you would like to edit or comment. For those groups that chose not to use Google Docs, please contact the group for the best way to comment or contribute.

Note: it is possible to register to all the Google groups without a Google account. In this case, send an empty email (subject and contents ignored) to the group email, adding +subscribe after the group name. (e.g. hsf-cwp-software-development+subscribe@googlegroups.com).

As the CWP process is now concluding, this page is mostly for information and to capture some history now. Please see the CWP status page for the latest status of working group papers.
