Summary of Actions

  • ACTION: Look into TRefArray limits (A. Dobbs)
  • ACTION: Circulate schedule to group managers to get updated dates before next time (A. Dobbs)
  • ACTION: Fix tracker unpacking and digitisation (E. Overton, P. Kyberd)
  • ACTION: Present tracker noise implementation to group (C. Heidt)
  • ACTION: Flag low pt for downstream tracker reconstruction (A. Dobbs) Done in personal dev branch, needs testing before merge
  • ACTION: Optimize momentum residuals for final tracks (C. Hunt)
  • ACTION: Get detector output in global coordinate system (C. Heidt, C. Hunt)

Agenda

Release status

  • Current release = 0.9.4
  • Targets for release 0.9.5:
    • Remove extra EMR recon events
    • Geometry GDML parser for speedup
  • Targets for future release:
    • Trigger MC
    • Tracker -- pat rec and kalman updates
    • Tracker unpacking and digitisation fix

Schedule

Detectors

  • Detector integration (D. Rajaram)
    • Reconstruction quality flags (A. Dobbs to make requests to detector groups) #1585
  • Tracker (P. Kyberd)
    • Space-point, track-finding efficiency studies partly blocked by lack of trigger #1182
    • ACTION: Tracker unpacking and digitisation fix (E. Overton, A. Dobbs)
    • ACTION: Flag low pt for downstream tracker reconstruction (A. Dobbs) Done in personal dev branch, needs testing before merge
    • ACTION: Present noise implementation to group (C. Heidt)(link)
    • ACTION: Optimize momentum residuals for final tracks (C. Hunt)
  • TOF (D. Rajaram)
    • Restructure TOF MC Digitizer - part of trigger MC (D. Rajaram)
  • EMR (F. Drielsma)
    • MC #1033
      • Does the "extra events" from EMR affect MC trigger formation? See #1595
      • ACTION: Refactor code to remove extra recon events (F. Drielsma)
  • KL (M. Bogomilov)
    • STANDING: MC validation, optimization, tuning, #1411
  • CKOV (Drews, Winter, D. Rajaram)
  • Monte Carlo trigger (D. Rajaram) #1182
    • ACTION: Restructure TOF Digitisation and incorporate MapCppTrigger (D. Rajaram)

Global Reconstruction

  • Tracking (J. Greis)
  • PID (C. Pidcott)
  • Detector output
    • ACTION: Get detector output in global coordinate system (C. Heidt, C. Hunt)
    • ACTION: Need uncertainties from detector reconstructions: on poitions, momenta, tof time (A. Dobbs)
      • Will also need data structure modifications once we understand how to get the uncertainties

Unpacking

  • Need to roll out SL6 to Jenkins nodes (P. Franchini)
    • Configure to run with either Step I or Step IV unpacker depending on environment flag, see #1633.
    • Need to configure a Jenkins build to regularly check Step I data once we move to the Step IV unpacker as default
  • ACTION Fix tracker unpacking and digitisation (E. Overton, A. Dobbs)
  • DAQ channel maps to DB (D. Rajaram) #1375, blocked by #994

Infrastructure

  • Geometry/MC (S. Ricciardi, R. Bayes)
    • Speed improvements (R. Bayes)
  • Monte Carlo
    • ACTION: Upload script feature (R. Bayes)
  • GRID and Batch Production (C. Rogers, J. Martyniak)
    • Try grid running again? #1489
      • Running 0.9.4
  • Code deployment
  • Documentation
  • Data Structure

Performance

  • Speed improvements
    • No more passing JSON between modules, as string conversions are expensive, only use JSON for configuration data and input / output (A. Dobbs, D. Rajaram, C. Rogers)
      • Extensive refactor work
    • YK proposes parallelising MAUS with C++11 multi-threading, at the mapper level, see #1638 (A. Dobbs, D. Rajaram, C. Rogers, Y. Karadzhov)
      • Extensive refactor work
  • Beam generation excessive resource usage
    • Query analysis group requirements (in particular how many G4BL beams we need)
    • Consider alternative upstream beam generation code

Documentation

  • Create workbook (A. Dobbs)

AOB

  • MAUS paper draft - developers please review and supply input where required launchpad
