News, general matters, announcements

HSF Joint Workshop with WLCG

WCLG-HSF workshop at DESY (13-17 May) (it will go back public very soon!)

Registration should open at the end of this week (which will happen via DESY Indico).

Graeme, Eduardo and Caterina are helping with the overall organisation for HSF.

Our ideas so far:

LHCC in February

Slide(s) presented in today’s AF and attached to this agenda from Eduardo.

Google Summer of Code 2024

Registration for organizations opened. The HSF team will stay the same as last year (Baidyanath, Wouter, Valentin, Benedikt).

Focus this year should be more on AI related topics as asked for by Google. Biggest visible change is the introduction of a small project category. Which means we have small (~90 hours), medium (~175 hrs) and large (~350 hours) projects. Deadline for project proposals is next week Feb 7 !

The convener teams for 2024 are converging now!

There is an issue in GitHub to gather ideas about reorganising and revamping the website to better reflect our areas of actual activity.

We aim to try and have a new website ready for the workshop.
