The Working Group’s scope covers hardware that is used or can be used in data centers participating to HEP/NP-related computing activities. It does not cover technologies solely applicable to DAQ systems or software technologies unless they are essential to enable a particular hardware technology.

The group will co-exist and align with existing activities, most notably the running working group on benchmarking.


The group is jointly chaired by Andrea Chierici, Shigeki Misawa and Andrea Sciaba.
