EIC Detector R&D Simulation Workshop

WHEN: Monday/Tuesday October 8th and 9th 2012

WHERE: Brookhaven National Laboratory, Building: 490 (Medical Department), Room: Large Seminar Room; EVO-Meeting : Info can be found here

The Agenda can be found here

The Executive Summary of the Workshop can be found here

The purpose of the workshop is to combine forces in tools and manpower to answer questions put forward by the EIC Detector R&D Committee (https://wiki.bnl.gov/conferences/index.php/EIC_R%25D [wiki.bnl.gov]) on the influence of machine induced backgrounds on detector technologies and the simulation of physics processes to benchmark the detector performance. Ideally, we would hope to formulate a mock detector featuring each of the technologies currently receiving R&D funding support with principle input to the simulation from the appropriate group(s). More details on the topics to be addressed during the meeting are listed below.

We would be very happy if you could find the time to join us for the workshop. If you have not yet access to BNL, information on how to get access and how to travel to BNL can be found here http://www.bnl.gov/bnlweb/userindex.asp please fill the guest registration (https://www.bnl.gov/gateaccess/ [www.bnl.gov]) and please drop an email to Rachel Nieves <irachel@bnl.gov> and Elke-Caroline Aschenauer (elke@bnl.gov), if you are planning to attend.

The topics discussed during the workshop are mainly based on questions the committee asked several times.

  • Golden measurements to benchmark the detector performance against currently we have
    • Structure functions F_L, F_2
    • DVCS
    • Kaon asymmetries
    • Quality on how well the scattered lepton can be reconstructed
  • can we define software standards for the simulation of the detector
  • what computing power is currently existing and how does it need to be expanded at BNL/RACF and JLab.
  • what software tools and environment is existing at BNL and JLab for
    • ep/eA generators
    • detector simulations
    • to simulate forward particle trajectories through IR magnets
  • what machine background information is available from eRHIC and ELIC/MEIC for
    • neutrons
    • synchrotron radiation
    • electron and hadron beam induced background, i.e. beam gas events

How can the info be integrated into the detector simulation
