The 3rd White Rabbit workshop will be held at CERN (Meyrin site, room
6-2-024 ) on 20 July
2009. The goal of this workshop is to take stock of the status of the
different work packages and do some planning for the immediate future.
The highlight this time will be the WR switch design, hopefully with a
demo of the first prototype. Here is a preliminary agenda:
09:00 - 09:30 Intro (Javier)
09:30 - 10:00 The protocol (Pedro)
10:00 - 10:30 Network simulations (Patrick)
10:30 - 10:45 Coffee break
10:45 - 11:15 GSI tests (Tibor et al.)
11:15 - 12:00 Switch design and demo (Tom et al.)
14:00 - 15:30 Planning for the next six months.
Finishing up the switch design.
Higher level protocols.
WR master design.
WR as an EU project?
15:30 - 15:45 Coffee break
15:45 - 17:00 Scenarios for collaboration with industry.
Submitting WR to a standardization effort?
An official agreement document for collaboration members?
Companies as design partners.
Companies as manufacturers and distributors.
As last time, and to have enough time for informal brainstorming, we
will welcome you to stay for one more day if you want. But there will be
no program, organized lunch, etc. on the 21st. Room
(French site) is reserved for this second day, although people are also
welcome to meet in small groups as they see fit. This is really meant as
a very informal follow-up of the official workshop day. Also as last
time, those of you who are not at CERN will have to find a means to get
here on your own but we will offer you lunch on the day of the workshop.
