A New Platform for Large-Scale Biological Simulation

Computer simulations have become a very powerful tool for scientific research. In order to facilitate research in computational biology, the BioDynaMo project aims at a general platform for biological computer simulations, which should be executable on hybrid cloud computing systems.

From Physics to industry: EOS outside HEP

In the competitive market for large-scale storage solutions the current main disk storage system at CERN EOS has been showing its excellence in the multi-Petabyte high-concurrency regime.

Exploring RapidIO Technology within a DAQ System Event Building Network

Exploring RapidIO RapidIO (http://rapidio.org/) technology is a packet-switched high-performance fabric, which has been under active development since 1997. The technology is used in all 4G/LTE basestations worldwide.

RapidIO as a multi-purpose interconnect

RapidIO (http://rapidio.org/) technology is a packet-switched high-performance fabric, which has been under active development since 1997. Originally meant to be a front side bus, it developed into a system level interconnect which is today used in all 4G/LTE base stations world wide.

A Deep Learning tool for fast detector simulation

Machine Learning techniques have been used in different applications by the HEP community: in this talk, we discuss the case of detector simulation.
