use cases with specific interest to intel
Use Cases with Specific Interest to Intel
  • Data acquisition systems
  • Software optimization
  • Rackscale Architectures and Open Compute
  • Support for enterprise-level desktop computing

Intel Visit - 8 July 2014


From Use Cases to openlab Projects

Intel Visit - 8 July 2014

cern openlab projects
CERN openlab Projects
  • The use cases represent high-level requirements or areas of investigation
  • The next step is to define concrete projects out of the use cases
  • The goal is to have an initial set of concrete projects in the coming months

Intel Visit - 8 July 2014

representation and coordination
Representation and Coordination
  • The projects are the main units of technical activity
    • As broad or as specific as the project participants require as long as cost, effort and contributions are clear
  • CERN/Research Lab group and openlab sponsor representation needed across all projects
    • The CERN/Research Lab groups will host the projects
    • Needed for coordination, monitoring, review, etc.
  • Each project can be reviewed independently to be able to preserve confidentiality as necessary

Intel Visit - 8 July 2014

training and education
Training and Education
  • Some of the projects may not be R&D-focused
    • Training or educational activities
  • Leverage existing training activities or facilities across openlab sponsors and research labs
  • Relationship with
    • The Summer Student program
    • Wider education/training activities (similar to the current ICE-DIP project)

Intel Visit - 8 July 2014

project starting date
Project Starting Date
  • Formally, January 1st, 2015
  • New projects can be defined during openlab V
    • If activities do not fit in current projects
    • When new openlab members join
  • Projects can start earlier than January 2015
    • When Openlab V Collaboration Agreement is in place
    • When project Statement of Work is defined

Intel Visit - 8 July 2014

  • CERN openlab V will be a very flexible and dynamic phase with a low level of entry for new partners, wider CERN community participation, wider Research Lab participation, and possible EU contributions
  • The challenges CERN and hence our partners face remain formidable
