NFDI Physical Sciences Joint Colloquium in March 2023

The next NFDI Physical Sciences Joint Colloquium of collaborating NFDI Consortia will take place online and in Berlin at 02 March 2023. You can register for the event, now.

Topic: Exascale-era data challenges in Physics & Astronomy

Speaker: Ian Bird, Technical Coordinator in ESCAPE, Project Lead of the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid (2008 – 2020)

Abstract: In High Energy and Nuclear Physics domains, the currently planned future accelerator projects will bring Exascale data challenges. High-Luminosity LHC (HL-LHC) in particular is developing a next generation data infrastructure capable of reliably managing and delivering multi-Exabyte data sets to heterogenous computing and analysis facilities. This so-called "Data Lake" is also being developed within the ESCAPE project as a common data infrastructure for other astronomy, astro-particle and nuclear physics domains. In this talk Ian Bird will give an overview of the strategy of HL-LHC, the collaborative work in ESCAPE, future prospectslooking forward to the European Open Science Cloud and its further opportunities for collaborative development of such data infrastructures in the support of Open Science and FAIR data.

Date: 02 March 2023, 02:30 pm
