About 30 projects (ideas) has been submitted by about 45 mentors from about 17 different organizations.
Next step: The organizations will be announced and students will start contacting prospective mentors (Feb 27, 2017)
There will be an LHCC Meeting in two weeks from now. A short summary of CWP workshop will be given by Benedikt.
People informed that several summary talks of the CWP workshop are being given. It would be nice if we should collect material of these talks in this page.
Final HSF “Community White Paper” workshop 26-30 Jun 2017 in Annecy
HEP analysis ecosystem workshop
It is pretty clear from the doodle poll that the best slot is 22-24 May 2017.
No problem to have it close to CERN. Pete will investigate to have it in Amsterdam (Pere will start booking rooms at CERN just in case).
For next week we should have if there are offers of possible venues.
There was a discussion of the possibility to co-locate the workshop with the Data Management CWP working group workshop. Pere: we should not overlap the two events. Pete was of the opinion that we can manage to accommodate the ‘analysis ecosystem’ with the ‘infrastructure and data management’. The wish is to avoid parallel sessions by all means.
Dario will investigate with INFN management whether it is possible to host it in Italy (place to be identify)
Pete has started to create the necessary google groups for the remaining WG and will circulate a mail soon.
Other meetings that need to be pinned down: IML workshop, … We need the full list of workshops.
CMS is trying to get organized for their participation the various WGs and inviting individuals from other experiments to their meetings.
Started a discussion on how we organize the actual writing of the CWP. Different opinions being expressed: start early with a given overall structure, or start with a bunch of partial white papers on each topic and try to summarize them on the CWP. We will follow this discussion by e-mail.
ATLAS has set the copyright of all their collaboration software to “CERN for the benefit of the ATLAS Collaboration”. Still not settled the actual license of the software. Looking forward for a weak binding license.
The scheduled F2F license meeting in principle set for February 21st at 4:00pm.
