Second Workshop on Data Preservation and Long Term Analysis in HEP
1st Bulletin: 26 March 2009
The Second Workshop on Data Preservation and Long Term Analysis in HEP will take place from Tuesday 26 - Thursday 28 May 2009 in California, USA at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (SLAC).
The workshop will consist of three days of plenary talks, working group and discussion sessions, where the main objectives are: to review the physics objectives of data persistency in HEP; to exchange information on the analysis model used by HEP experiments; to address the hardware and software persistency issue; to review the funding programs and other existing international initiatives; and to converge to a common set of recommendations for future experiments. We are working towards having a final report ready in time for Lepton Photon 2009.
There is a registration fee of $55 for the Workshop and a separate fee of $30 for the social event.
The social event will be held at the Computer History museum. (http://www.computerhistory.org) There will be a tour plus dinner. Please sign up for this by the first day of the workshop. The fee covers the transportation, tour and dinner. Transportation will be provided to/from the social event from SLAC.
Twenty rooms at the on site guest house (http://www.stanford.edu/dept/rde/guesthouse/) have been blocked off (until April 24th) for DPLTA participants. The cost is $83/night. Other accomodation options are presented on the General Information page.
Information concerning getting to SLAC and locating the conference rooms is provided on the General Information page.
Further details will be posted on the workshop agenda in the coming weeks.
