Data Science @HEP at Simons Foundation

As a follow-up to the DS@LHC2015 we are organizing a hands-on workshop/hackshop on Data Science in High Energy Physics at the Simons Foundation in NY on July 5-7 2016. The workshop will bring together computer/data scientists and physicists and we expect to formulate new ideas and solutions for a variety of detection and physics analysis challenges. We will work on focus topics such as tracking, calorimetry, anomaly detection and newly emerging paradigms in machine learning (such as density ratio estimation) and try to stay close to challenges that involve the raw data.

HPC Software Development Webinar Series Begins May 4

Organized by the IDEAS Project and the ALCF, NERSC, and OLCF computing facilities, the “Best Practices for HPC Software Developers” webinar series is designed to help users of HPC systems carry out their software development efforts more productively. The webinars, which kick off on Wednesday, May 4, will occur at approximately every two weeks and last about one hour each. For more information or to register, visit:

ASCR/HEP Exascale Requirements Review

The first of the DOE Scientific Computing Exascale Requirements Reviews conducted by DOE ASCR was held in June 10-12, 2015 in Bethesda, MD. This was a joint ASCR/HEP program and was organized on the HEP side by the HEP-FCE. The agenda and the presentations can be found at the review website. A report that contains planning material for the next decade, including a number of white papers and case studies, will be available shortly.
