SW&C Journal is taking shape. It is ready for first papers to be submitted. The first meeting of editorial board will take place on March 15.
Dario got an offer to organize a training workshop as part of IEEE NSS-MIC 2017 (October 21-28). Is HSF interested? Not completely clear what/how we could do. A good opportunity to meet other communities. Dario proposes something targeted at our technical challenges (like validation). Or is the the goal more a workshop about training? Need to look at it in more details (see Dario’s email to startup list).
Andrea Valassi invited to a Fluka meeting to discuss StackExchange. About StackExchange, IT investigating the possibility of buying a StackExchange license.
No news with respect last meeting. The working group page to collect a summary of progress of all the others WG is being prepared.
CMS meeting (particularly on computing models) next Monday open to everybody. Pete will be sending a mail with the details (to HSF mailing list?)
Plan to organize a session at Fermilab as a follow-up to San Diego, before the 50th anniversary (as part of the event processing framework workshop).
From the visualization WG, the first workshop will be on March 28-30 at CERN (on afternoons to be able to connect remote people from US)
Meeting this week (February 2st) (agenda). Representation from IT, KT, LHC experiments. Notes available but not yet published: it will happen soon.
Consensus on a more permissive license should be recommended.
Andrea: distinction between libraries and applications is required. GPL (and potentially EUPL) is a problem mainly for libraries…, but this is the main artifacts we develop!
EUPL which has been proposed as default by INFN, also has issues for CERN due to court of jurisdiction.
Would be good to have INFN actively involved in the discussion group.
Andrea V. had a discussion after the meeting with a Fastjet developer (M. Cacciari) about Fastjet GPL licensing: in principle they are open to re-discuss it.
