Reconstruction and Software Triggers

The Reconstruction and Software Triggers Working Group will consider approaches and solutions to common challenges across HEP in the area of event reconstruction and software triggering (e.g., algorithms and data structures designed for online and offline processing of raw detector data). The working group targets challenges identified during the CWP process as well as new ones arising as the state of R&D advances. This forum should foster collaboration on design and implementation challenges, the adoption of common approaches, and raise awareness of existing solutions known to the community. Topics of interest include the evaluation of new foundational libraries; techniques for track and calorimetric-object reconstruction and identification; pattern recognition and clustering; new approaches, including applications of machine learning techniques and real-time analysis techniques; the effective use of modern computing hardware through threading, vectorisation and use of accelerator technologies; and the application of profiling and quality assurance toolkits.
