XII International Workshop on Advanced Computing and
Analysis Techniques in Physics Research
Are we ready for LHC era experiments?
Ettore Majorana Foundation and Centre for Scientific Culture, Erice, Sicily
November 3-7, 2008
November 2008 will be a few months after the official start of LHC when the highest quantum energy ever produced by mankind will be observed by the most complex piece of scientific equipment ever built. LHC will open a new era in physics research and push further the frontier of Knowledge
Accelerator and detector design, construction management, data acquisition, detectors monitoring, data analysis, event simulation and theoretical interpretation are all computing based HEP activities but also occurring many other research fields. Computing is everywhere and forms the common link
between all involved scientists and engineers.
The ACAT workshop series, created back in 1990 as AIHENP (Artificial Intelligence in High Energy and Nuclear Research) has been covering the tremendous evolution of computing in its most advanced topics, trying to setup bridges between computer science, experimental and theoretical physics.
We are very happy to invite you to this exceptional session of the ACAT series (12th) that will mark a new turning point in the cross-fertilization of hot physics research and computing technology.
