Tutorial in Finland 19 March 2007

  • Participants: 9
  • Type: Introduction, hands-on
  • Experience, interest:
    • <1year. Geometry building. Tracking in general. My order of importance: 1) reco 2) simu 3) gen Geometry building. Geometry mapping. How to use acquire debug information form CMSSw in general and in particular in the case that an exception gets thrown in code. (ref: COBRA based tools printed them to console by default).
    • Zero. I would expect to learn generating and reconstructing my own data with CMSSW. I probably would also consider useful learning about analysis tools and visualization tools. I will be working closely with FinnCRack.
    • < 1 year. Analysis not key interest as there is good information on the web. I would like to learn more about CMSSW development (including new detector; simulation, digitisation, reconstruction). Not much information on the web about this part, at least I did not find to much usefull.
    • Zero. I may be interested in contributing later to the CMSSW development (2.3). 'm also interested in a set of links/instructions etc. on where to find relevant information on how to use CMSSW later, and a skeleton structure on data analysis starting from a huge dataset (e.g. 100 TB) and squeezing that through possibly several intermediate steps to something manageable on a daily basis (<10 Gb). (2.4)
    • < 1 year. Ana: Since I work with taus -> hadrons, I am interested in jets, missing Et, tracking ... I'm also interested to know what kind of analysis tools are there. Also interesting could be code optimization (i.e. profiling with valgrind). Gene: I know part of this from Sasha's code; what is unclear to me is what you do if you combine different generators (for example: generate event with pythia and decay taus with tauola). Generally, this partis taken care by the production people and all I need is maybe to generate small samples to test specific cases (i.e. a particle gun).
    • < 1 year. in terms of priority: 1. learn how to contribute to CMSSW development more specifically detector reconstruction code development for TOTEM T2 telescope introduction to CMS tracking recontruction code could be helpful. 2. learn how to generate+simulate+reconstruct own data samples 3. doing analysis on premade samples, special interest jet reconstruction.
    • < 1 year. Tracker Alignment-related issues, which consist first of all running the alignment algorithm (iteratively) with already generated data, and in addition reconstruction and possibly also creating data samples suitable for alignment. I have already done that a little.
    • Zero. I have lots of experience with C++, ROOT, and Geant4 development (both Geant4 simulations and developing the toolkit itself). Simu: As a Geant4 developer I find it interesting to see how it is used in software package like CMSSW. Contributions to CMSSW: Probably simulation and Geant4-CMSSW integration.
    • < 1 year. will write code for the TOTEM T2 telescope for CMSSW. I am interested in ultimately doing my PhD thesis on, among other things, low-pT jets, so this would be of interest, too (the jets, specifically).
