The topic of the Software & Computing Round Table on May 4 will be “User-Centered Design

On Tuesday, May 4, at 11 a.m. (EDT) / 5:00 p.m. (CET), we will explore how to create good user experience and how to empower users who are not Software & Computing experts. We will discuss how to improve our software stack to make it easier for all type of users to actively participate in simulations and data analysis:

  • Travis Wiggins will share "Best Practices: Creating Good User Experience”.
  • Wouter Deconinck (University of Manitoba) will review "EIC User Survey and Focus Groups: First Insights”.
  • Sylvester Joosten (ANL) will present an "Automated Workflow for End-To-End Simulations and Detector Design Optimizations”.
  • Andre Sailer (CERN) will introduce "Key4hep: The Turnkey Software Stack”.

We will use Zoom for the remote meeting:

Brookhaven National Laboratory, the HEP Software Foundation, and Jefferson Lab are organizing the Software & Computing Round Table to foster the interplay of computing and science. The monthly round table forum aims for knowledge transfer and to encourage common projects within our scientific community.
