mandate
Mandate
  • Formed in 2004, IHEPCC is an ICFA sub-committee that provides a forum of the exchange of information on computing issues of a global nature
    • Strategic policies, technology trends, security issues, training and education
  • Links with the ICFA SCIC sub-committee (H.Newman, Chair), the regional HEP organizations and grid projects
  • Reports to the ICFA committee
    • Recent report at the Feb 2006 ICFA meeting by the outgoing Chair, Guy Wormser

2004 2006 activities
2004-2006 Activities
  • Report on HEP Virtual Organization
  • Review of software training opportunities
  • Participated in Digital Divide discussions with SCIC
    • IHEPCCC met at the Korea Digital Divide Workshop 2005
  • Initial discussions on a number of topics
    • Grid computing
    • Software Licensing
    • Hardware procurement

visitor support
Visitor support
  • General support for visitor computing is good
    • Wireless available in an open environment or after registration
    • Site coverage is reasonable but not complete
    • Access to printing in often limited
  • Teleconference and video conference facilities
    • Most meetings use teleconference and web
    • Technical difficulties appear to be resolved at most labs
    • Some labs have no teleconference contract
  • VOIP
    • Growing demand for VOIP to reduce telephone costs
    • Skype restrictions at CERN

areas under discussion
Areas under discussion
  • HEP software
    • A number of success stories (e.g. ROOT, Geant4)
    • Operating system development
    • Concern about non-open source HEP software
    • There is duplication of effort in some areas (may be good)
  • Commercial software
    • Need for packages such as MatLab, ORACLE, Objectivity
    • Could we arrange a HEP license for some packages?
  • Training and education
    • Encourage support of computing schools and development of web-based training or documentation
    • Could we save money and resources by better training?

Grid
  • Focus of HEP grid efforts is on the LHC
    • LCG and OSG are large efforts
    • Many other initiatives around the world that involve HEP but also other fields of science
    • What is the non-HEP use of the Grid?
  • Organizations
    • LCG GDB is a national body for the LHC Community
    • HEPiX is an institution/laboratory community that looks at technical computing issues (more than grid)
    • HEP is involved in GGF
  • IHEPCCC needs to discuss HEP grid

hepix and ihepccc
HEPiX and IHEPCCC
  • LCG GDB is working with HEPiX on technical projects
    • Storage Task Force Report
  • IHEPCCC is an advisory group to ICFA
    • We are not building an infrastructure (like the GDB)
  • IHEPCCC would like to invite a representative from HEPiX to present a summary after their meetings
    • What are the key areas that IHEPCCC should address?
    • What message should we give to the Lab Directors?

ihepccc priorities
IHEPCCC Priorities
  • IHEPCCC needs to renew its mandate and membership
    • The “renewed” IHEPCCC will meet for the first time in May-June
  • Visitor support
    • Continue to monitor support and get feedback from the community
  • Grid
    • Get a better overview of the global efforts and quantify the non-HEP use of the Grid
  • Software
    • Document the use of licensed software and learn more about non-open source HEP software development
  • Technical issues
    • Open a dialog with HEPiX community

summary
Summary
  • IHEPCCC provides an opportunity to highlight computing issues to ICFA (A.Wagner, Chair of ICFA)
    • Presentation to ICFA in Feb 2007 Beijing meeting
  • Contact me or one of the IHEPCCC members with your comments and suggestions (rsobie@uvic.ca)
