Collaborations and Related Projects

The IRIS-HEP project and team members are part of a larger ecosystem of projects and collaborations focused on both high energy physics research and the development of software and computing systems to support science. These include:

HEP Experiments

U.S. Collaborations

  • U.S. ATLAS Collaboration: This is the full collaboration of U.S. researchers participating in the ATLAS experiment at the LHC. Funding comes from a variety of single PI and group NSF and DOE grants.
  • U.S. ATLAS Operations Program: This is a joint NSF/DOE project to support operations and computing facilities needed for the U.S. participation in the ATLAS experiment at CERN. – NSF PHY-1624739
  • U.S. CMS Collaboration: This is the full collaboration of U.S. researchers participating in the CMS experiment at the LHC. Funding comes from a variety of single PI and group NSF and DOE grants.
  • U.S. CMS Operations Program: This is a joint NSF/DOE project to support operations and computing facilities needed for the U.S. participation in the CMS experiment at CERN. – NSF PHY-1624356

Older Projects

  • S2I2-HEP: The S2I2-HEP project prepared a strategic plan for a potential NSF Scientific Software Innovation Institute (S2I2), which evolved into what became the proposal to the NSF for IRIS-HEP. As part of that, the S2I2-HEP project worked closely with the HEP Software Foundation to prepare a larger HEP Community White Paper (CWP) describing a global roadmap for HEP Software and Computing R&D for the 2020s. – NSF OAC-1558216, NSF OAC-1558233, NSF OAC-1558219
  • DASPOS: This project ran from 2012-2017 and did an “initial exploration of the key technical problems that must be solved to provide appropriate data, software and algorithmic preservation for HEP, including the contexts necessary to understand, trust and reuse the data.” As such, it contributed directly to some of the development work performed by the DIANA/HEP project and now as part of the Analysis Systems area of IRIS-HEP. – NSF PHY-1247316
