News, general matters, announcements

Analysis Ecosystems Workshop

The AE2 Outcomes document is now on Zenodo - v1 is signed by the organisers.

It is now open for workshop participants to endorse (=sign), by adding their names to this Google Doc before 12 September.


The next LHCC Referees meeting is 13 September.

Please pass WG (1 slide) and other input to Liz and Graeme by 6 September (the slides need to be given to the referees in advance). Or you can fill in the Google Slide directly.

N.B. we are trying to broaden the report to cover other relevant events in the community, e.g., this time the CTD Conference and the IML Workshop. Other ideas are always very welcome.


After discussions with the training group we decided to start an HSF Twitter account, @hepsoftfound (it was a bit challenging to find a good handle!).

If you have a twitter account please follow and reweet a few things to help spread the word.

The intent is to use the account to

ATM Graeme, Killian and Mark can tweet for HSF - please let us know if you would also like to help.
