Speakers: David Standingford & Dr Luke Kreczko

6.45pm Refreshments
7.15pm Main Talk

The experiments in the High Energy Particle Physics (HEP) community, with the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiments in particular, produce vast amounts of data every year. However, only a small fraction of this data, in the order of tens of petabytes, can be stored.

The presentation aims to summarise the flow of the data from experiment to physicist as well as the supporting computing infrastructure. We will briefly discuss the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment and its data reduction systems, the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid, and future challenges in this sector.

Dr Luke KreczkoLuke Kreczko is a Research Associate in the particle physics group at the University of Bristol. Currently he spends his time on precision measurements and trigger studies at the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), simulation and software development at the Lux-Zeplin experiment, and maintenance of the Bristol Tier 2 computing site. As a passionate physicist and technologist he is part of an effort to modernise the way petabytes worth of physics data are analysed.
