Following the great experiences in Google Summer of Code in 2011, 2012 and 2013 we are applying again in 2014!
Project ideas are grouped into categories (ideas related to the SixTrack accelerator simulation engine used in the LHC@Home application, to the cling interpreter inside Root, to the performant and versatile IgProf profiler, to the CERN Virtual Machine, and to the Geant 4 simulation tools). We also have a so-called 'Blue sky' ideas which are rather raw and must be worked on further before they become projects. And we are open to other great ideas, and are looking forward to hearing from students with new perspectives on our projects. The list of our mentors (and their areas of expertise) can be found below.
The SFT group in the EP department develops and maintains common scientific software for the physics experiments in close collaboration with the EP experimental groups, the IT department and external HEP institutes. The majority of the group is involved in projects organised as part of the Applications Area of the LHC Computing Grid (LCG) project. In addition, several group members have direct responsibilities in the software projects of the LHC experiments. SFT projects are organised in four core areas: Simulation, Libraries and Frameworks, Distributed Systems and Collaborations with Experiments.
