Release status

  • Current release = 1.2.0
  • Targets for release 1.3.0:
    • Updated tracker zero suppression in unpacking
    • Updated tracker MC noise algorithm
    • Global coordinate output added to tracker spacepoints
    • Tracker Kalman fit updates
    • EMR updates
  • Targets for future release:
    • Trigger MC
    • Tracker -- Kalman updates
    • execute_against_data.py should be always make a tarball

Schedule

Detectors

  • Detector integration (D. Rajaram)
    • ACTION: Add data_analyzable flag for each detector (Detector software heads) #1585
  • Tracker (P. Kyberd)
    • Observe that tracks when visualised do not appear to line up between trackers, in both position and slope
    • MC studies of effect of 1T field on tracker performance (P. Kyberd, Analysis Group)
    • Space-point, track-finding efficiency studies partly blocked by lack of trigger #1182
    • ACTION: Optimize residuals for final tracks (C. Hunt)
    • ACTION: Fix close to paraxial tracks producing nan output (C. Hunt)
    • ACTION: Update tracker online plots (M. Uchida)
    • Flag low pt for downstream tracker reconstruction? (A. Dobbs)
  • TOF (D. Rajaram)
    • Restructure TOF MC Digitizer - part of trigger MC (D. Rajaram)
  • EMR (F. Drielsma)
  • KL (M. Bogomilov)
  • CKOV (A. Liu, D. Rajaram)
    • Calibration
    • Validate CKOV MC against data

Global Reconstruction

  • Tracking (J. Greis)
  • PID (C. Pidcott)
  • Detector output
    • Get detector output in global coordinate system (C. Heidt, C. Hunt), see #1631
  • ACTION: Detectors to provide uncertainties from reconstructions on: positions; momenta; tof time (A. Dobbs)
  • ACTION: Implement dE/dx in Runge-Kutta (J. Greis)

Monte Carlo

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

Geometry

  • ACTION: Fix cdb geometry download by run number (R. Bayes)
  • ACTION: Verify scifi geometry correct in CDB now (C. Heidt, P. Kyberd)

Online Reconstruction

Batch Offline Reconstruction

  • GRID running 1.0.0
    • Enable MC GRID running again #1739
    • execute_against_data.py to always produce tarball Is this still relevant?
  • Offline Rec running 1.1.1, want to upgrade to 1.2.0

Infrastructure

  • ACTION Fix geometry test which randomly produces large SOAP error (R. Bayes)
  • ACTION Fix problems when setting header_and_footer_mode to "dont_append" (C. Rogers, C. Pidcott)

Performance

  • Speed improvements for MC
  • Beam generation excessive resource usage
    • Query analysis group requirements (in particular how many G4BL beams we need)
    • Consider alternative upstream beam generation code

Tools

Event Viewer

  • Add event viewer to MAUS

Documentation

  • Update tracker (C. Heidt)
  • Update geometry (R. Bayes)

Release Status

Schedule

Detectors

  • KL
  • Ckov
  • EMR
  • Tracker

Proposed solution to sign flips: change plane rotation sign in geometry (120deg -> -120deg, -120deg -> 120deg). R. Bayes unsure, believes leaves us with inconsistencies in MC. C. Heidt will investigate.

  • TOF

Global Reconstruction

J. Greis writing unit tests to get code ready for trunk
C. Pidcott working on getting CKOV in

Monte Carlo

Geometry

Wiki documentation updated

Online Reconstruction

Batch Offline Reconstruction

MC GRID running should be feasible again soon

Infrastructure

Performance

Memory leaks now fixed!!

Tools

M. Savic needs direction on what is desired of project. A. Dobbs will start discussion with C. Rogers and D. Rajaram.
