Oklahoma Center for High Energy Physics

A DOE EPSCoR Proposal

Submitted by a consortium of

University of Oklahoma,

Oklahoma State University,

Langston University

Presented by

M. Strauss – OU


Goals of ochep l.jpg

Goals of OCHEP

  • Leadership in HEP research integrating OSU, OU, & LU as one strong entity

  • Computational facility for regional data analysis and Monte Carlo simulation with connection to industry via IT development and transfer

  • Education and outreach for Oklahoma students and teachers in high-tech via HEP research

Proposal specifics l.jpg

Proposal Specifics

  • Initiate an Experimental Program at OSU

  • Establish a computational Grid analysis facility

  • Improve education opportunities for high school teachers and students, and university students

  • Total budget of $750,000/year plus one to one matching funds.

Program runs for 3 years with a possible 3 year extension

Osu experimental program l.jpg

OSU Experimental Program

  • New OSU faculty would work in collaboration with faculty at OU and LU

    • Most likely DØ and ATLAS

Computational analysis facility at ou l.jpg

Computational Analysis Facility at OU

  • Build on our Grid and collaborative experience and success with DØ and ATLAS

  • Leverage OK’s Internet-2 state network

  • Position OK as a major component of the emerging Grid infrastructure

    • Foster IT development in collab. with CS

    • Provide regional Grid technology and expertise to other scientific fields (biology, chemistry, geology, meteorology, …)

    • Attract hi-tech industry research and development (IBM, Sun, MS, …)

Ou grid development l.jpg

OU Grid Development

  • 2 IT Specialists for at least 3 years

    • At least one for at least six years

  • $400,000 in computer equipment over three years

    • ~300 Linux based Opteron processors

    • ~60 TB tape storage

  • Infrastructure and support from the Oklahoma Supercomputing Center for Education and Research (OSCER)

  • DØ and ATLAS distributed computing; and more… (the Open Science Grid?)

Education and outreach l.jpg

Education and Outreach

  • Train students in physics, mathematical modeling, computer simulations, IT, and electronics

  • Support high school teachers

    • Summer Research Experience (2-4 teachers)

    • 2 Week HEP Workshop (10 teachers)

  • Provide summer research experience for undergraduate students

  • Attract and retain under-represented minorities to science and technology

Status and outlook l.jpg

Status and Outlook

  • Proposal was submitted this week

  • Support letters from DØ and CDF spokespersons, computer division at Fermilab, head of US ATLAS Grid computing, developers of Open Science Grid white paper, Fermilab and BNL theorists.

  • 12 EPSCoR states competing with about 20 proposals for 1 or 2 grants.

  • Decision made late 2003 or early 2004

  • First funds allocated in spring 2004
