Software Review Preparations

  • A draft of the written document to be sent to the committee has been posted on the DocDB.
  • An Indico site has been set up for the review. You can find the agenda, charge, talks, etc. there.

Raw Data Format for Simulated Data

This has been on the work plan for some time. It will be needed for next year's data challenge. Elliott will check with David Abbott for some software he promised us. Otherwise we have everything we need.

Level 3

Elliott reminded us that we need to get started developing and studying level 3 algorithms. This would be a good project for a new group. Zisis[?] has been talking to a group from Thessaloniki, Greece that has expressed interest in working on level 3.

Dry Run for Software Review

Mark ran through his talk. Comments and suggestions were collected and will be incorporated.
