IIHE Photo Database

The Photo Database is hosted at to archive pictures/movies related to the CMS Tracker Phase II construction activities at IIHE(VUB/ULB) and to make them accessible to the relevant people. Pictures/movies are documented with corresponding captions and structured in subalbums. Every picture/movie can be searchable by tags, creation/uploaded date, etc.

    • Interface to the CMS central database
    • Processing the plans if we want to build the number of modules
      • Are there enough components?
      • For how many modules we have remaining components?
    • What kind of budget to use to buy some components
    • Barcode reader
  • List the components to build a 2S module (Dima, for the next meeting)

  • Investigate the software and databases
