Abstract: The technologies used to develop the software and computing tools for the LHC experiments evolve continuously, and ATLAS like the other LHC and HEP experiments needs to keep pace in order to exploit in an optimal way the available resources. The organization of LHC data-taking periods in “runs” lasting 3 or 4 years, separated by shutdown periods of 2-3 years, gives the opportunity to develop new tools and features without affecting operations, and then deploy them during the shutdown periods in preparation for the new “run”. This is what happened during the past shutdown period LS2 (2019-2121) in preparation of “Run 3” that just started, and will last till 2025. This talk describes the evolution of ATLAS software and computing environment and tools that led to the currently operational system, and the ongoing developments towards the High-Luminosity LHC data-taking periods that are foreseen to start in 2029.


Speaker: Prof. Dario Barberis is a researcher and lecturer at the University of Genoa (Italy) since 1992. After studying Physics at the University of Milan (Italy), he received a PhD degree from the University of Manchester (UK) in 1982. His initial work was on the productions of mesons and baryons containing heavy quarks using photon, meson and hyperon beams at fixed target, using the Omega facility at CERN. Since 1996, he works full time for the ATLAS experiments, where he was Computing Coordinator between 2003 and 2010 and kept contributing to the development of the computing infrastructure ever since.
