Perseverance Hall, Building 54, Room 130
A Workshop at the 2014 ALS User Meeting, October 7-8, 2014
Organizers: Alexander Hexemer, Dula Parkinson, David Shapiro, Alastair MacDowell (ALS-LBNL), Craig Tull (CRD-LBNL)
Beamlines require robust, high performance software for analysis and visualization. This need is driven byhigh data rates and volumes, and by dynamic experiments where researchers must have feedback during beamtime. A flexible and highly customizable work flow framework could be used across many beamlines and synchrotrons. Beamline scientists and the user community could leverage this framework, making it significantly easier for them to provide high performance analysis tools to general users. This workshop will investigate the current state of the art in workflow, analysis, and visualization tools.
