NFDI Physical Sciences Joint Colloquium

The NFDI Physical Sciences Joint Colloquium on
Exascale-era data challenges in Physics & Astronomy
with Ian Bird, Technical Coordinator in ESCAPE, Project Lead of the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid (2008 – 2020)
will take place on March 2, 2023 online and in Hamburg.
This event is hosted by PUNCH4NFDI.

In High Energy and Nuclear Physics domains, the currently planned future accelerator projects will bring Exascale data challenges.  High-Luminosity LHC (HL-LHC) in particular is developing a next generation data infrastructure capable of reliably managing and delivering multi-Exabyte data sets to heterogenous computing and analysis facilities.  This so-called "Data Lake" is also being developed within the ESCAPE project as a common data infrastructure for other astronomy, astro-particle and nuclear physics domains.  In this talk I will give an overview of the strategy of HL-LHC, the collaborative work in ESCAPE, and I will mention future prospects as we look forward to the European Open Science Cloud where there are further opportunities for collaborative development of such data infrastructures in the support of Open Science and FAIR data.
