WLCG Data Steering Group


The WLCG Data Steering Group has been requested by the WLCG Management Board to consider medium to long term Data Management strategy. It should track relevant technical themes and define priorities, on which basis it will make recommendations to the MB on priority issues and how they should be tackled.

In practise this means meeting periodically to decide how relevant issues should be handled, typically by instigating some mechanism to move forward, for example working groups, discussion at community meetings or MB escalation. The timescale of interest is strategic, but the group is more oriented to the Run3 timescale than to HL-LHC. The group can serve as a point of contact on data topics for other WLCG activities.
