Date and Time: Wednesday, 3 Fenruary 2021, at 3:00 PM

Venue: Online seminar on Webex, Laboratory of Information Technologies

Seminar topic: «Offline Software and Computing for the SPD experiment»

Speaker: Alexey Zhemchugov (SPD Software coordinator, Dzhelepov Laboratory of Nuclear Problems)


The SPD (Spin Physics Detector) is a planned spin physics experiment in the second interaction point of the NICA collider that is under construction at JINR. The main goal of the experiment is the test of basic of the QCD via the study of the polarized structure of the nucleon and spin-related phenomena in the collision of longitudinally and transversely polarized protons and deuterons at the center-of-mass energy up to 27 GeV and luminosity up to 1032 cm-2 s-1. The data rate at the maximum design luminosity is expected to reach 20 GB/s. Current approaches to SPD computing and offline software will be presented. The plan of the computing and software R&D in the scope of the SPD TDR preparation will be discussed.
