This is the final agenda of the first ITTF Integration Workshop, including all post-mortem corrections. It is constructed as a list of talks. The idea was to have a speaker with transparencies to guide us through the discussion and to come up with a solid understanding of the work to be done and who will do it before moving on to the next topic.
I allocated generous time-slots to prepare for lots of discussion time.
The meeting ran through all day on Wednesday, with an informal (we've got no money for this) dinner on Wednesday evening in the 'center'. This is where the most interesting discussions took place, but, alas, they are not of a nature one would want to publish here. Apologies to those who were not present.
Please send me your slides if you have not already done so. We need them as references in the integration process.
Thanks to all who participated,
Wednesday March 6th, Bldg.118, 9:00-17:30, phone 2261 (all day)
The morning session is meant to introduce ITTF and the current global chain with an emphasis on I/O and program flow.
- Introduction (Matthias Messer) 20
- Introduction to ITTF Program Flow (Mike Miller) ppt/html 20
- Highlight where program flow could differ w.r.t. current global reconstruction
- Status/Timeline of ITTF Readiness and Testing (Claude Pruneau) ppt/html 30
- Hit Structures as input (mostly this)
- Track Structures as output
- Tasks to be finished: Who, what when
- Stand-alone testing
- Writing into StEvent
- StAssociationMaker for both ITTF and TPT/Global/Primary Tracks
Break (11:30 - 11:45)
- Introduction to current reconstruction Program Flow (Lee Barnby) ppt/html 30
- Identify people currently responsible for all codes
Lunch (13:00 - 14:00)
The afternoon session is meant to examine (to first order) each of the affected current reconstruction packages. Specifically, we need each speaker to list the dependencies of their packages. Since the integrated(!) tracking software needs hits from all subsystems before it starts doing its bit, this essentially means clustering, clustering, and clustering. We'll have more clustering on Thursday.
