HEP Software Foundation Startup Team Meeting notes Nov 10 2014


Present: Torre, Andrea, Dario, Graeme, Michel, Pere, Peter, Frank

Meeting notes:

News on contacts made, discussions had, …

Michel - planning to meet with FastJet authors.

Dario - had INFN discussions on common framework for TDAQ. Favorable view on HSF.

Torre - sent feelers to a couple of astroparticle people, Richard Dubois and Andy Connolly (both LSST).

Graeme - concern from some that HSF will become a monster, taking over software right and left.

Peter - HSF is what people bring to it.

*** review the draft, particularly the executive summary, to be sure these core messages are clear.

Plan for GDB presentation on Wed

Pere will present to the GDB, background on HSF and recent progress.

Getting the draft out

Points from the discussion:

Getting word out on the SLAC workshop

The CHEP list is strictly reserved for CHEP business, we can’t use it. So we will fan out the mail to our communities.

We will first create a google group as a HEP S&C community forum and in the mail invite people to subscribe to it.

The timing is now such that we’ll be able to include reference to the public draft.

Hopefully when we define what HSF activity will take place at CHEP we can get in mention of HSF in a future CHEP bulletin.

Regarding workshop preparations/content

Next steps


Pere will hold a meeting next Monday. Torre will be away.
