NMI3-II Data Analysis WP6 2nd meeting Dec 5th 2012 in Garching-FRM2

WP6 2nd meeting: Garching-FRM2-library map (updated) WP6 2nd meeting: Garching-FRM2-library map (updated) A map of the FRM2 area with the location of the ISaR Library where takes place the meeting (small room)

The next meeting of our work-package will take place in Garching-FRM2 on December 5th 2012, TUM ISaR Library 9-12 am.

During this meeting, we shall present and discuss the results of the tasks 1 and 2, as reports prepared by Ricardo Leal and me. In these documents, an overview of the existing neutron scattering data analysis software is made, which allows to define recommendations for future projects. These reports are intended to serve as a foundation for the Tasks 3 and 4.

Tentative Agenda:

  • Presentation/discussion of the Report on existing software
  • Presentation/discussion of the Report on solutions for common infrastructure
  • Presentation/discussion of initial coding with Mantid, aiming at handling reactor based instruments – pros and cons

If you wish to present some thoughts and/or results which might contribute to the discussion (for instance your research centre strategy concerning data analysis), please tell me. This meeting is also openned to other NMI3 project members, as observers.

I also encourage you to attend the other computer related meetings, i.e. Integrated User Access Integrated User Access (Dec 4th@library), e-learning (Dec 6th@library), Monte Carlo workshop (Dec 7th@library).

This meeting is a satellite of the NMI3 General Assembly
Accommodation: Motel One or Ibis in garching.
