Present: Torre, Andrea, Dario, Graeme, Michel, Pere, Peter, Frank
Pere - met with LHCb on Monday. Generally positive. They expressed worry over how an experiment can participate, whether significant effort is required, e.g. packaging requirements.
Torre - presented to CMS. Generally positive, concerned that there wouldn’t be time at the SLAC workshop to fully present CMS views. I agreed and said there should be an HSF-CMS discussion in the round of contact discussions coming up. Conveyed the same message to ATLAS computing management. Some discussion of initial scope, might it include distributed software, eg. workflow management. Responded that scope isn’t confined to core focus areas, can respond to proactive initiatives as to what to include.
Graeme - spoke to GridPP project leadership. Generally positive. They want HSF to focus on being practical and useful. Also discussed with Rivet and Yoda authors. They had impression HSF is concerned only with big players. Definitely not the case. Arranging to discuss with HepForge creator.
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.
Pere will present to the GDB, background on HSF and recent progress.
Points from the discussion:
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
Pere will hold a meeting next Monday. Torre will be away.
