On Dec. 7, during Computer Security Awareness Day 2016, Jeny Teheran presented the talk titled “Security Basics for scientists and anyone who uses the scientific tools”. The focus of this presentation was to explain basic security concepts that scientists encounter every day while working at Fermilab, such as Kerberos tickets, certificates and proxies.The annual Scientific Computing Portfolio Management Team (SCPMT) review is scheduled for Feb. 23 and 24. This review helps develop the M&S purchases and SCD service directives for the following fiscal year(s), e.g., SCPMT17 helps to develop the FY18 and FY19 plans. In preparation, all experiments that use computing resources fill out a resource request spreadsheet. Experiments also register for the services they intend to use. The figure included shows the number of SCD services each experiment is using. Read moreRead moreRead more
FIFE provides collaborative scientific-data processing solutions for Frontier Experiments.
FIFE takes the collective experience from current and past experiments to provide options for designing offline computing for experiments. It is not a mandate from Scientific Computing Division about how an experiment should or should not design their offline computing. FIFE is modular so experiments can take what they need, and new tools from outside communities can be incorporated as they develop.
