EIC Software Meeting, JLab, September 24 2019

NPPS is co-organizing an EIC software meeting on September 24 at Jefferson Lab to follow up on the agreements at the July 10 BNL meeting with specific proposals on common conventions and interfaces to enable EIC detector models to be used in the various frameworks.

DUNE data model workshop, BNL, August 14-16 2019

DUNE held a workshop at BNL in August to brainstorm their data model, towards developing a full computing model over the next months. NPPS participated and is exploring how the group can become involved in DUNE.

EIC Simulation Meeting, BNL, July 10 2019

NPPS hosted an EIC simulation meeting on July 10 to progress on how to improve commonality and ease of use among the simulation tools, to allow users to work with multiple detector concepts easily without learning several different systems. The meeting concluded with a set of agreements to enable this; see the meeting notes.

ATLAS S&C Week at NYU June 24-28 2019

NYU hosted and NPPS led the organization of ATLAS Software and Computing Week at NYU in Manhattan June 24-28 2019. ATLAS folks can access the agenda.

Welcome to the home of BNL's new NPP Software group!

BNL has consolidated the former Physics Applications Software (PAS) Group together with software experts from nuclear physics to create the new Nuclear and Particle Physics Software Group in the Physics Department. Explore this site to learn about the group.
