In 2017 the HEP Software Foundation, charged by the WLCG, produced a roadmap white paper on the software and computing challenges that will be faced during the next decade. This has been published in the journal Computing and Software for Big Science.
A Roadmap for HEP Software and Computing R&D for the 2020s, The HEP Software Foundation, Albrecht, J. et al., Comput Softw Big Sci (2019) 3, 7 https://doi.org/10.1007/s41781-018-0018-8.
We recommend you download the citation files (BibTeX and others) for the paper from the journal website.
The roadmap is also available as arXiv:1712.06982.
The roadmap summarised reports from fourteen working groups who studied the challenges in their sub-domains. All of the reports produced during the Community White Paper process are listed below. Working groups are in the process of finalising and uploading their work to arXiv.

This is a list of talks about the CWP Roadmap that were given by various HSF members:
A historical page is maintained that describes in more detail the process that the community took to arrive at the final outcome.
