FabrIc for Frontier Experiments (FIFE) is a project within Scientific Computing Division that aims to provide collaborative scientific-data processing solutions for Frontier Experiments. We hope to provide a recommended set of end-to-end tools for experiments to use to design and implement their offline computing. This workshop is being used as an introduction and review of the products and services currently available from SCD and other computing resources.

FIFE will include architecture, design, services and support for - Grid submission to dedicated and opportunisitc resources and user-friendly monitoring of submitted jobs.
  • Data management and handling with co-scheduling of data and job services and integrated into the art analysis framework
  • Database and dataset applications such as beam monitoring, conditions, and hardware
  • Collaborative tools such as an electronic control room logbook and shift scheduler
  • Collaborations with experiemnts to build integrated solutions
  • FIFE will be based on common toolsets wherever possible to increase flexibility, provide for efficient evolution, and reduce the maintenance load

Note that for lunch, you should recieve an invite to place an order with Chipotle. If you do not receive that email, contact Mike Kirby.
