Rob Gardner, University of Chicago Abstract:
"The Institute for Research and Innovation in Software for High Energy Physics (IRIS-HEP) (NSF OAC-1836650) has been established to develop innovative software solutions for the computational and data science challenges of the planned High Luminosity Large Hadron Collider (HL-LHC) at the European Laboratory for Particle Physics (CERN) in Geneva, Switzerland. The Scalable Systems Laboratory (SSL), which is to be built from contributed compute and data resources, is intended to provide the Institute and the HL-LHC experiments with a means to transition R&D components to production-scale prototypes. The platform should be capable of supporting innovation of novel analysis and data architectures, development of software elements and tool chains, functional and scalability testing of service components, and foundational systems R&D for accelerated services developed by the Institute. We'll discuss technology options and opportunities for federating new resources with the platform, and early work using Kubernetes and containerized services to support intelligent data delivery to production and analysis platforms."
