Summary on Grant Application Form
We propose to establish a design and development working group (DDWG) to cover exascale science topics in experimental high energy physics (HEP). The HEP computing usage is currently at the preExascale stage and the participation to ExCALIBUR will enable exchange of ideas and good practice with other Sciences at a similar scale to ours. This proposal is put forward by the UK HEP community and aims to foster collaboration with colleagues from other communities. During the first phase of ExCALIBUR the HEP DDWG will provide demonstrators of exascale algorithms and data management infrastructure for the benefit of HEP and beyond. These activities follow the ExCALIBUR four pillars approach and are chosen to provide high research impact in areas of UK leadership evolving towards exascale science in the 2020s.
