Alumni Project

Partical Physics Data Grid Collaborative Pilot

This project is an effort to build one unified system that will be capable of handling the capture, storage, retrieval and analysis of particle physics experiments at the five most critical research facilities. The collaboratory issues arise from the highly distributed access to, and processing of, the resulting data by a worldwide research community. The effort will develop a middleware infrastructure to support High Energy Physics and Nuclear Physics communities (HENP), and enable grid-enabled data-management ("manipulation") and analysis capabilities "at the desk of every physicist."
