HSF Evolution

The Core Coordination Team have been meeting fairly regularly to discuss how we evolve the HSF to be most effective.

We have discussed a number of points:

Working Group Updates

Data Analysis


Detector Simulation

Software Training

C++ Course and Hands-on Training

Reconstruction and Software Trigger

It’s the xorlabs filter that does this, see tickets INC3759294 and INC3761021. I pasted a few screenshots of how this happened for other HSF lists that are now unblocked.


Tools and Packaging

Other Interest and Activity Areas

Analysis Facilities

Session at the WLCG-HSF workshop to look forward to.

Compute and Accelerator Forum

Indico agenda

Event generators

We should have a BoF for the generator people at the workshop, because quite a few are coming.
