HEP/NP Requirements Review 2013

Goals

The goal of this review is to accurately characterize the networking requirements of science funded by the HEP and NP Program Offices. These requirements will serve as input to the ESnet architecture and planning processes, and will help ensure that ESnet continues to provide world-class support for scientific discovery for DOE scientists and their collaborators. The tangible outcome of the review will be a document that includes both the network requirements and a supporting narrative.

Schedule

The review will be a 2.5 day event - all day Tuesday August 20th and Wednesday August 21st 2012, and the morning of Thursday August 22nd, 2013.

Review Report

This review will generate a network requirements document for the HEP and NP Program Offices. This document will be composed of the network requirements input from the workshop attendees.

Review attendees should review the case study template document and other background materials on the documents page. Please also review the pages on the ESnet public web site. Please then use the background materials in combination with your own knowledge and experience to generate a narrative describing your scientific research, instrument, facility or other scientific endeavor. Examples of science narratives with their accompanying requirements matrices can be found in the reports from previous reviews. Case studies (both the narrative and the corresponding data table) must be submitted to the review organizers (Eli Dart - dart@es.net, Brian Tierney - bltierney@es.net, and Lauren Rotman - lauren@es.net) by August 9, 2013.

At the review we will review the documents and speak with the attendees to ensure that we understand the science being done insofar as it has an impact on networking. We will also make sure that we capture the timelines for upgrades, new facilities, changing collaborations, and other coming events that will change the way in which the network is used.

The review format is much closer to a round-table discussion rather than a series of PowerPoint presentations. If you feel that you really need to give a formal presentation we can accommodate that, but we have found that these review are more productive if there is a simple discussion and exchange of ideas rather than a formal presentation format.
