MDC4 Home Page

These pages are not meant as a replacement for the relevant pages on the STAR computing web. Here we list the general goals of MDC4 and provide information of general interest. This page can only become useful if all particpants contribute. MDC4 is still in the planning stage. If you have information which you think might help others preparing or particpating in MDC4 please let me know.


MDC4 will be a STAR-only exercise directed at data reconstruction ad physics analysis, exercising reconstruction software, physics analysis software, infrastructure and CRS/CAS tools and facilities. The focus is on new detectors added for the run FY01/FY02 (EMC, FTPC, SVT, TOF) and the new physics capabilities provided by them.

MDC4 is scheduled for April 26 - May 10, 2001.
The various Physics Working Groups (PWG) will provide more detailed documents on their specific goals and plans soon.
