HSF Workshop at SLAC

The HSF had a workshop at SLAC’s Kavli Auditorium in January 2015, Tue 20 - Wed 21, with discussions continuing on Thu 22. The main goal of the workshop was to refine the next steps for building the HSF. The workshop was successful in this, with about 100 participants (80 local and 20 remote) contributing to establishing a concrete set of community mandated activities for the HSF. Several workshop summaries presented around the community are attached to this page. The list of registrants is available on the workshop website linked below.

Pre-workshop solicitation for input: Since we are stressing the bottom-up style of the HSF initiative by asking the opinion and suggestions to the whole community, you are also encouraged to submit a contribution proposal using the abstract submission page.

The agenda is available. In outline the program is:

  • Survey briefly what has been done so far (previous workshop, startup team, White Papers synthesis, startup plan, etc.)
  • Invite a range of large and small projects to briefly express their views on how the HSF could be useful to them, and what they can bring to it
  • Invite a wide range of experiments, small communities, individual users to express their views in lightning talks
  • Discuss new project initiatives which might be launched under the Foundation umbrella
  • Hear national, agency and institutional views
  • Come to consensus and conclusions on the next steps in starting up the HSF.
