  1. Work Package 5: Data Acquisition Report from WP-leader Niko Neufeld CERN PH-Department

  2. What and who is WP5? • WP5 is groups together the researchers working in the Data Acquisition systems of the 4 large LHC experiments ALICE, ATLAS, CMS and LHCb • There are 6 ESRs: Adriana Telesca (AT), Jean-Christophe Garnier (JG), Sebastian Bukowiec (SB), Dan Savu (DS), Yi Ling Hwong (YH), Luca Magnoni (LM) • There will be 2 ERs: • One visiting scientist: GaetanoMaron (GM) • 2 Associated partners: Force10 networks, University of Legnaro • 6 supervisors + 1 WPL

  3. Data Acquisition at LHC • One of the technically most challenging tasks in LHC • Vital for the success of the entire experimental programme • The ACEOLE ESRs are in key positions

  4. Challenges in the LHC DAQ: what do the ESRs do? • 4 huge experiments (ALICE, ATLAS, CMS and LHCb) move up to 100 Gigabyte (equivalent of 1200 CDs) every second • Data movement and storage (JG, AT) • Data movement is done using a large network (DS) • The quality of these data needs to be monitored using thousands of histograms and counters • Data quality monitoring (AT) • The operation of such a complex experiment requires sophisticated electronic tools such as an electronic logbook • CMS logbook (SB) • Highly complex systems with thousands of parameters need to be configured and their operation needs to be monitored in an automatized way using advanced IT • Expertsystem analyzer (YH) • Log analyzer (LM)

  5. WP5 dissemination • Conference contributions • CHEP 09, CHEP 10 • xx conferences contributions(oral & poster) • yy papers in peer-reviewed journal (Journal of Instrumentation) • RealTime 09, RealTime 10 • zz conference contributions (oral & poster) • zz papers in peer-reviewed journals (IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science) • ICALEPCS09 • pp conference contributions (oral & poster) • Schools • ISOTDAQ • Organized largely by the ESRs for students in DAQ • Lab-courses developed, taught and supervised by the WP5 ESRs

  6. WP5 specific training • Visiting scientist G. Marron • ISOTDAQ 2 • Seminar / one-on-one training @ CERN • Internships with Force10 • Autumn , Winter 2010 • delayed because of changes within Force10 (new management) • Numerous courses / certifications taken by individual ESRs

  7. Cross-over • Data Acquisition is closely linked to electronics • the next member in what is called the “read-out chain (In particular to what is done in WP4) • IEEE RealTime is a conference where electronics for detectors and DAQ people meet • There are also contributions from WP5 ESRs (JG) to the TWEPP (electronics) workshop (TWEPP09 and TWEPP10), the leading workshop on electronics in particle physics

  8. Milestones & Deliverables
