Schedule

Detectors

Detector integration (D. Rajaram)

  • ACTION: Add data_analyzable flag for each detector in post processing to CDB (Detector software heads) #1585, #1689

Tracker (P. Kyberd)

  • Fix tracker MC no MCS x' 1s.d. deviation bug (P. Kyberd)
  • ACTION Fix Pattern Recognition bugs - 50 MeV/c excess, MINUIT misreconstruction at low pt #1807 (A. Dobbs)
  • Space-point, track-finding efficiency studies partly blocked by lack of trigger #1182

TOF (D. Rajaram)

  • Restructure TOF MC Digitizer - part of trigger MC (D. Rajaram)

EMR (F. Drielsma)

KL (M. Bogomilov)

CKOV (D. Rajaram)

  • Calibration
  • Validate CKOV MC against data

Global Reconstruction (M. Uchida)

Monte Carlo

  • Monte Carlo trigger (D. Rajaram) #1182
    • Restructure TOF Digitisation and incorporate MapCppTrigger (D. Rajaram)

Geometry and CDB

  • Want to be able to pull down tracker calibration data at the start of every run (better for online rec)
    • CDB C++ API written, but not yet ready for use

Third party libraries

  • ROOT6 upgrade (AD) (On Hold)

Online Reconstruction

Batch Offline Reconstruction

  • GRID MC running
  • Offline Rec running with 3.0.1

Infrastructure

  • Multiple tracks per trigger
  • Complete Output API
    • Make OutputCppRoot inherit from IModule
    • No more casting from py_obj* to determine Spill, RunFoooter, RunHeader, JobFooter, JobHeader type?
    • Make base class for Spill, RunFooter, RunHeader, JobFooter, JobHeader
  • Make OutputCppRoot work with cpp reducers in general (ok if some specific ones do not)
  • Fix the Reducer API to all running multiple reducers in a chain
  • Find a way of making the spill and event number accessible through the data structure detector event classes

Performance

  • Speed improvements for MC
  • Multithread MAUS for reggular use, not just online recon (AD, DR)

Event Viewer

Documentation

  • Update tracker (P. Kyberd)

Build system / Version control

Analysis

  • Add analysis cuts to reconstructed data (M. Fedorov, C. Rogers)
    • Add place to hold cuts and bool flags to data structure
    • Add analysis code to correctly set the flags

AOB

Notes

Attendance

AD, CHunt, JG, PF, PK, MS
MF had connection difficulties

Release Status

Schedule

Detectors

  • Tracker
  • CHunt will take over PatRec after AD leaves
  • CHunt planning on looking at:
    • systematics in track fit
    • can we mitigate dead channels' effect on the recon?
  • TOF
    • AD will encourage SW to attend MAUS meetings

Global Reconstruction

  • AD will encourage MU to attend MAUS meetings

Monte Carlo

Geometry and CDB

Third party libraries

Online Reconstruction

Batch Offline Reconstruction

Infrastructure

Performance

Event Viewer

  • DR has done some analysis into crashes -- SciFiDigit and SciFiCluster may be contributors, MS still thinks MiceModules are causing issues too
  • Offline now also crashes when EVReducer is used, MS will try to fix, and send to AD to look at too
  • Agreed to focus on making sure EV works offline, online less relevant now due to only limited running time on MICE

Build system / Version control

  • MS encountered the infamous "Python.h not found" build error, and fixed it, AD requested he puts it on the issue tracker for reference

Analysis

AOB

  • Our thanks to JG for all his hard work, and best wishes for his new career in software development!
  • PF and DR will take over AD MAUS duting when he departs in ~2 weeks.
  • Next meeting: 1st November 2017
