management committee summary
Management Committee Summary
  • Effort at CERN
  • Operational Tasks
  • Cost Sharing and New Expenses
  • ZDC Collaboration
  • Management roles
  • Papers, Conferences and Author Lists
  • Mailing Lists
  • Upcoming Meetings
  • Upgrade
  • Dates of Upcoming Meetings

Quite long, but

mostly routine.

I will highlight problems and actions

Management Committee Summary

effort at cern operational tasks cost sharing
Effort at CERN/Operational TasksCost Sharing
  • Plenty of manpower at CERN
    • No immediate prospect of major departures
    • More students and others arriving
    • Need to be more efficient about sharing out ‘experienced’ resident tasks
      • Calibration runs, routine checking
  • Operational task accounting
    • OTSMOU figures for 2009 finalized
    • Initial 2010 estimate done, needs input and (small) updates
    • Will continue with current on-calls and duties, but may evolve with experience
  • Very little operational expenditure
    • 1 new DCS PC
    • Cost sharing still very even
    • Need to follow-up on status of extra monitoring PC purchase
    • Upgrade expenditure to be reported to (refocused) Resource Committee

Management Committee Summary

zdc management roles
ZDC/Management Roles
  • ZDC working and paid for
    • But they need more PPMs eventually
    • Maintenance (both H/W and effort) still a worry
  • Reiteration of recent changes and plans
    • Steve appointed as ‘Project Dogsbody’ until 31st September 2011
    • Division of Upgrade reponsibilities
      • Norman: Overall coordination and contact
      • Jim: Simulation
      • Andrei: MCM upgrade
      • Sam: Phase I architecture
      • Murrough: Phase II architecture
    • Still need new Documentation chief

Management Committee Summary

papers and conferences
Papers and Conferences
  • Recent conference contributions
    • John Morris, TWEPP, calibration (TDAQ authorship)
    • Felix Muller, TWEPP, input tester (reduced authorship)
  • Even for these papers, rules are getting more formal
    • Will be even tougher for papers with ATLAS authorship
  • Upcoming Conferences:
    • IEEE Realtime: Lisbon 24th – 28th May, abstract deadline 28th February
    • TWEPP: Aachen 20th – 24th September
  • Further backup publications need to be finished
    • Digital processor
    • Preprocessor
    • Software
  • Steve will request updates to TDAQ authorship

Management Committee Summary

mailing lists
Mailing Lists
  • Number and purpose (and naming) of L1Calo mailing list has become unwieldy
  • Proposed simplification
    • All mailing lists maintained at CERN
    • Merge some related lists (software, calibration, cern)
    • New naming convention (via aliases)
    • Steve will circulate more details before implementation
  • We should also try using other communication techniques
    • Sharepoint
    • Savannah

Management Committee Summary

  • Little to add to Norman’s summary
  • Discussion of Phase I ‘partitioning’
    • Design not finalized
      • Architecture needs to become more concrete
    • However, it is clear some options might cause problems for effort sharing between institutes/funding bodies
    • In particular, can’t divide one main ‘Topological Processor’ Board
  • Need to increase communication with L1Muon (and CTP)
    • Same is true for Operation

Management Committee Summary

upcoming meetings
Upcoming Meetings
  • Weekly meetings continue
    • Lengthen to include more recent work if needed
  • General meetings convert to focused (technical?) sessions
  • Jim and Sam organising Upgrade meetings
  • Next Joint Meetings
    • CERN, 5th – 7th May
    • Subsequentone has several question marks
      • Probably late September or late October
      • Probably at CERN
      • Probably more Upgrade emphasis
      • May be ‘Joint’ with L1Muon and CTP
  • Two important meetings next week
    • Monday 18th – TDAQ Open Meeting
    • Tuesday 19th – ATLAS Open EB
    • Both with include talks from Hans-Christian
