News, general matters, announcements

Analysis Ecosystems Workshop

The draft AE2 Outcomes document was circulated on Monday, open for comments until 1 August.


The US Snowmass meeting in Seattle is well underway. Lots of interesting talks and material to look at if you are not there in person. (Computation Frontier Sessions.)

Future Trends in Nuclear Physics Computing will be 28-30 September at Stony Brook University. Save the date!

“Software design and development will constitute a cornerstone for the future success of the experimental program at the EIC. Moreover, the cost of the IT related components, from software development to storage systems and to distributed complex e-Infrastructures can rise considerably if a proper understanding and planning is not taken into account from the beginning in the design of the EIC. The planning must include AI and ML techniques, in particular for the compute-detector integration at the EIC, and training in these techniques. The ‘Future Trends in Nuclear Physics Computing’ workshop at CFNS provides an ideal forum to discuss these topics. The workshop report will provide guidance for the larger EIC community on software & computing and connect them to existing common efforts in the NP and HEP community.”

Noted that last workshops have benefited greatly from participation from HEP colleagues.
