  • Release status
    • Current release = 0.9.1
    • Targets for future release:
      • EMR -- digitization
      • EMR -- reconstruction
      • Trigger MC
      • DAQ maps to DB #1375 (needs #994)
  • Detectors
    • Detector integration (Durga Rajaram)
      • Reconstruction quality flags
    • Tracker (Adam Dobbs)
      • Space-point, track-finding efficiency studies partly blocked by lack of trigger #1182
      • ACTION: flag low pt for downstream reconstruction Done in personal dev branch, needs testing before merge
      • ACTION: Real data unpacking -- David Adey assigned to fix
      • ACTION: D. Adey to review C. Heidt's noise implementation
    • TOF (Durga Rajaram)
      • Restructure TOF MC Digitizer - part of trigger MC
    • EMR (Francois Drielsma)
      • MC #1033
      • ACTION: Francois / Durga to sort out issues with code merged into trunk
      • does the "extra events" from EMR affect MC trigger formation?
        • Communication from François: code is in private branch on lp, MC digitizer v1 is complete, Reconstruction being worked on
        • DR tried running EMR Digi + Reco - some test failures, extra events have incorrect event number
    • KL (Mariyan Bogomilov)
      • STANDING: MC validation, optimization, tuning, #1411
    • RealData (Yordan Karadzhov)
      • DAQ channel maps to DB (Rajaram) #1375, blocked by #994
    • Ckov (Drews/Winter/Rajaram)
    • Global Recon (Jan Greis/Celeste Pidcott)
    • Tracking (Greis)
    • PID (Pidcott)
      • ACTION: Need uncertainties from detector reconstructions. Uncertainties on track points, momenta; Uncertainties on tof time. How? Also will need datastructure modifications once we understand how to get the uncertainties
    • Monte Carlo trigger (Ryan Bayes) #1182
      • ACTION: DR restructure TOF Digi and incorporate MapCppTrigger
  • Infrastructure
    • Geometry/MC (Stefania Ricciardi/Ryan Bayes)
      • ACTION: Evaluation Results = ?
      • Speed improvements (Bayes)
    • MC Beam
      • Standing: There is a request to have G4BL decks in the CDB. JN will handle the interface code
    • GRID and Batch Production (Chris Rogers/Janusz Martyniak)
      • Try grid running again? #1489
        • Running 0.9.1 -- some jobs got cancelled due to using up memory losses, and tracker unpacking also causing failures
    • Code deployment (All)
    • Documentation
    • Data Structure
  • Online
  • AOB
    • MAUS paper draft - developers please review and supply input where required
    • ACTION: R. Bayes will supply example script for analysing physics block data

Detector Integration

  • Want reconstruction quality flags for each detector, and display in reducers (Rajaram)







  • PID VarC (Tracker and KL) now working (C. Pidcott)
  • Lots to do to understand how to evaluate purity and efficiency of PID and Global overall (C. Pidcott)
  • Bug in tracking rountines for backwards propagation through matter, work ongoing (J. Greis)
