The Plans for the European Spallation Source’s Data Management and Software Centre

Thomas Holm Rod
TrackConference
DescriptionDuring the next couple of years the European Spallation Source (ESS) will be constructed in Lund, Sweden. This project involves 17 European partner countries including the two host countries Sweden and Denmark. From the outset of the planning for ESS the importance of having an integrated software, and hardware, infrastructure for instrument control, data acquisition, data reduction and data analysis for the instruments was recognized. The Data Management and Software Centre (DMSC), located in Copenhagen, is responsible for delivering this infrastructure and will be working closely with collaborators from facilities, and universities, in the ESS partner countries to leverage experience, knowledge and existing software in order to achieve this. In this presentation I will describe how data acquisition will take place once ESS is in operation and our current plans for the data processing and management infrastructure that DMSC will deliver for the ESS instruments in the coming years.
