MarlinTPC Working Meeting

Seminar Room 7a (DESY Hamburg, Building 7)

Seminar Room 7a

DESY Hamburg, Building 7

Christoph Rosemann (DESY Hamburg)
A face to face meeting at DESY Hamburg about how to get started with MarlinTPC. The goal of the meeting is to enable user to run their own reconstruction and analysis. We want to identify problems and things that need to be done. In addition there will be technical discussions how to handle conditions data and about tracking code and tracking algorithms. The following schedule is to be understood as a guideline. Times are flexible and might be adapted, as there are many discussions.

        Installation 20m
        Incase you need to reinstall ILCSoft: The ILCSoft CVS is offline, repositories are all in Subversion not (except for LCIO which is not hosted at DESY) You need the trunk of ILCInstall: <verbatim> svn co ilcinstall_trunk </verbatim> Now you can use the config file file attached. For more info see MarlinTPC tutorial from spring.
