This Analysis Jamboree at the BNL ATLAS Analysis Support Center focuses on analyses related to trigger. We expect some of the coordinators in the ATLAS TDAQ domain will join the jamboree at BNL. We will select a few trigger related topics, such trigger rates for initial running, L1 and HLT trigger performance, Trigger menu optimization, and discuss in depth. We hope this will provide a venue for physicists to learn how the trigger related analysis software works, and contribute to the on-going trigger studies. This is also an opportunity for people who would like to improve the trigger-aware aspect of their CSC studies. The detailed agenda will be set up soon.

Dates and Agenda Outline

The dates for the Jamboree
Aug 6-10, 2007

The agenda for the Jamboree will be filled at here

The participants are welcome to stay longer at BNL if they find it beneficial, but please check the availability of personnel you intend to interact with. We hope that this environment would provide an added benefit for bringing collaborators of similar physics interests to work together, not just at the Analysis Week, but thereafter as well.


The meeting will take place in BNL Physics Department, Building 510A, Room 2-84 for general meetings, and additional space for breakout sessions in Room 1-105 and Room 1-113 in the same building, and a coffee lounge in Room 1-100. Physics Bldg map

Please refer to the BNL Map for directions to lab and the physics department.


We require a registration for the Jamboree because space is limited, and we would like to know in advance the topics to be discussed. There is no registration fee, but please send e-mail to George Redlinger (redlinge@bnl.gov) with cc to Linda Feierabend (feierabe@bnl.gov), notifying your attendance. Please let us know the dates of your visit, whether or not you are a US citizen, and if you already hold a BNL guest appointment.

Attendees who already hold a valid BNL Guest Badge may come on site without notification to the main gate. Attendees who already have approved guest appointments, but not a Guest Badge will have to notify the BNL main gate of their arrival by checking in here. US citizens without a guest appointment are allowed onsite, but we must know the dates of your visit so that the main gate can be notified.

All others must apply for the BNL guest appointment by completing the Brookhaven's Guest Registration Form well in advance of the meeting. You will be notified when the guest appointment is approved. When you arrive at BNL with the approved guest appointment for the first time, you must stop at the security office by the main entrance where you will be issued a temporary pass, then proceed to the RHIC/AGS Users' Office to complete the check-in procedure.

NON-US citizens without BNL guest appointment should complete the registration form as soon as possible, since it takes additional time for the approval process, especially for people from "sensitive" countries.

Please also note that obtaining a BNL computer account at USATLAS Tier-1 requires an approved guest appointment (irrespective of citizenship).

Computing Environment

We assume everyone will bring a laptop to work on, and everyone has a BNL computer account at the Tier-1.

Network connections, Wireless

All computers connected to BNL network need to be registered with the BNL ITD. When you first connect to the network, your web browser will be connected to a page to register your computer. Enter the appropriate information on the page (your Guest number is needed), re-start the network connection, you will then be connected.

The physics building has visitor wireless network, which is outside the BNL firewall. The name of the wireless access point is VWZ (Visitor Wireless Zone). A few wired connections (inside firewall) are available in rooms 2-84 and 1-105. You need to set http proxy in the web browser after registration, go to http://www.bnl.gov/cybersecurity/www.asp for instructions.

Tier-1 computer account.

If you have not logged onto your BNL account lately, you should be aware that using ssh private key is required. Follow this link

We will ask for additional interactive nodes be made available during the Jamboree. They are included in the pool of the interactive machines, so using "rterm" is sufficient.
