Description

Data Handling for LHC: Plans and Reality Tony Cass,CERN The four major experiments at the Large Hadron Collider- ALICE, ATLAS, CMS and LHCb-together generate roughly 20PB of data each year. Although the experiments are hosted at CERN, data handling and analysis, just like the user community, is distributed worldwide. This presentation will describe the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid that was established to organise the computing effort, covering initial plans, current experience and likely future directions. MMDS 2012. Workshop on Algorithms for Modern Massive Data Sets Stanford University July 10--13, 2012 Synopsis The Workshops on Algorithms for Modern Massive Data Sets (MMDS 2012) addressed algorithmic and statistical challenges in modern large-scale data analysis. The goals of this series of workshops are to explore novel techniques for modeling and analyzing massive, high-dimensional, and nonlinearly-structured scientific and internet data sets; and to bring together computer scientists, statisticians, mathematicians, and data analysis practitioners to promote the cross-fertilization of ideas.
