Meeting on the Future of Liverpool HEP Computing Infrastructure

A meeting to thrash out a policy and future direction for computing in the Department, and try to identify possible sources of funding that could help us replace the present ageing computing hardware and infrastructure.

Thursday 3rd July, VC Room, Oliver Lodge, 1400 to 1700.


Site administration Mike Houlden, John Bland, Robert Fay
ATLAS Carl Gwilliam
LHCb David Hutchcroft
CSD Cliff Addison
Facilities Management Dave Dutton
