15 May 2006Collaboration Board 1. PPARC call Closing Date: 13 July In the 2000 and 2002 Spending Reviews PPARC secured significant funding to establish an e-Science programme. One of the main aims of this programme was to create a UK Particle Physics Grid and the computing technologies required for exploitation in the UK of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, when it begins operation in Applications coordinated by the GRID PP consortium are now invited, to do the following: a) Underpin the particle physics programme by delivering the functional Tier 1 centre for the LHC experiments and for the other experiments where UK groups will require computing GRID access and facilities. This centre forms the basis of the UK contribution to the production computing needs of the LHC experiments and forms an integrated part of the world-wide LHC computing grid, providing data processing and storage services to the international LHC collaborations for the lifetime of the LHC. It will also act as a support centre for the UK Particle Physics Grid, linking the smaller Tier 2 centres and provide a first point of call for user support to UK physicists. The Tier 2 centres will continue to devote significant resources to LHC computing as a part of the integrated UK Particle Physics Grid. The bid(s) is expected to show how the Tier 1 and Tier 2 centres will build upon the existing infrastructure and expertise in the GRID computing required for LHC.
15 May 2006Collaboration Board 2. PPARC call The bid (s) for future resources should demonstrate the interactions between the Tier 1 and Tier 2 activities and propose the optimal balance between the computing resources provided for each. The bid should show how the current activities will evolve to provide fully operational Tier 1 and 2 centres during the first full three years of LHC operation. b) Provide Grid operations, middleware and common applications interfaces support required for the Tier 1 and Tier 2 centres. c) Provide the project management effort and expertise to coordinate the activities and manage the financial resources. Develop methods to allocate resources at the Tier 1 and Tier 2 centres to make optimal use of the hardware across the user experiments. 3. Experiment specific software and support was incorporated into the bids for Particle Physics experimental rolling grants (for staff) and experiment support in March 2006 and is not the subject of this invitation to bid.
15 May 2006Collaboration Board 3. PPARC call 4. The bid (s) should : a) show how developments build upon PPARC’s existing investment in e- Science and IT investment, leverage investment by the e-science Core programme and demonstrate close collaboration with other science and industry and with key international partners such as CERN. It is expected that a plan for collaboration with industry will be presented or justification if such a plan is not appropriate. b) Show plans for development and support for the full duration of the LHC and other relevant PPARC particle physics projects. 5. Proposals should contain details of full project costs, with detailed planning for the initial phases of the project, project management structures and mechanisms, and resource allocation procedures. All proposals will be fully reviewed by the PPRP. Guidelines are available for large proposals (total cost in excess of £1M) submitted to the PPRP and these guidelines should be used as the basis of such proposals. Further details will be sought as appropriate. 6. It is anticipated that support will be provided for the period 1 September 2007 to 31 March The coordinated bid should be submitted by 13 July 2006 to Charlotte Jamieson, Secretary of the PPRP
