CERN openlab talk: "The computing challenges faced by the high-energy physics community" – 25 March

The EuroHPC Summit Week is currently taking place online. The event brings together the main stakeholders in high-performance computing (HPC) in Europe, including technology suppliers, those running major infrastructures, and HPC users – from both science and industry.

Maria Girone, CERN openlab CTO, will give a keynote talk on Thursday 25 March about the computing challenges faced by the high-energy physics community (10:00-10:45 CET). The presentation is available to all who have signed up for the EuroHPC Summit Week, which is free of charge.

Girone’s presentation will summarise the unprecedented computing and data challenges posed by the ambitious upgrade programme for the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The anticipated increase in the complexity of particle-collision events, as well the higher rate of data collection rate, will substantially outstrip the gains expected from technology evolution. Further increasing the efficiency of how we use the HPC facilities at our disposal could potentially address the resulting resource gap. Girone will discuss the identified common challenges for integrating HPC centres into the HEP computing ecosystem.
