Release Planning

The list of new features planned for upcoming releases can be found here: AlCaReleasePlans

Submission of New Tags

To submit new tags for the release the developers are required to:

Release Validation

The list of validation contacts and validation results for each new release can be found here: SWGuideValidationTableAlCa NEW

The Matrix of which RelVals are run for which RelVal samples can be found here: AlCaRecoRelVals

Release Notes

Release notes relating to calibration and alignment can be found at SWGuideCalAliReleaseNotes31X NEW

Global Tags for Conditions

For information on global tags for conditions data, including how to include conditions in a CMSSW job, see SWGuideFrontierConditions

Tag collector for the Global-Tag.

The instructions for the Tag collector for the Global-Tag can be found here

Policy for global tags for data taking

For details see GlobalTagPolicy

Operations and sign-off procedure for constants updates

The operational procedures for proposing constants updates can be found under AlCaConstantsOperations. The protocol of the constants sign-off sessions can be found under
and AlCaSignOff

Mis-calibration and mis-alignment scenarios

Some global tags for MC production apply a smearing of alignment and calibration constants defined through certain mis-calibration and mis-alignment scenarios. Details concerning these scenarios can be found here: AlCaScenarios.


The set of AlCaRecos to be run for each primary data set during different phases of data taking is documented here: AlCaRecoMatrix.

Trigger Bits for AlCaReco

The set of trigger paths used as input for each AlCaReco skim is documented here: SWGuideAlCaRecoTriggerBits
