CMS Computing



The technical construction of the CMS experiment at the CERN LHC is well underway, with several crucial UK conrtributions. There are now many challenges in the area of e-Science, which must be met before the detector may be exploited for physics in 2007. We propose here a programme of work that will enable CMSUK to meet these challenges, inpreparation for rapid physics analysis at LHC turn-on. We request 33.0 staff-years of effort from PPARC, to be deployed over the period 2004-7. This will enable us to: construct and support the CMSUK computing system; prepare novel tools to simulate the CMS detector; develop a Grid monitoring system for the CMS subdetectors; and develop e-science tools for exploitation of the tracker, ECAL and trigger systems. In each case, the proposed work builds on existing CMSUK strenghts and expertise, provides scope for generic e-science development, and acts in direct support of our physics goals within the CMS experiment.
