CMS Tier 2 Workshop to be held at Purdue -- April 11, 2008

I'm interested in attending

February 29, 2008

The Rosen Center for Advanced Computing (RCAC) and Norbert Neumeister, who leads the CMS effort at Purdue University are hosting the United States Spring Workshop for all of the Tier 2 sites participating in the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment being conducted at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. In this collaboration, there is a vast amount of data and computation that is shared among the participating sites. As a result of this needed exchange, we are active members of the Open Science Grid (OSG) to help nurture the growing infrastructure to provide the most resources available for research. The CMS Tier-2 center at Purdue is a facility to support the computational needs of physicists in the US and across the globe.
