The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN Just Started

Wednesday, September 10th, 2008

The Large Hadron Collider just started its first official beam. This is an historical event for the high-energy physics community and for the entire world. The LHC was built in the last decade to enable new generation of physics experiments. Last but not least, in order to analyze all the scientific data that are going to be produced the LHC Grid computing infrastructure was created.

We are wishing Good Luck to our Big Brother: the “big” Instrument Element! Witch it has been used as Run Control of the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at LHC. The tiny Instrument Element Project (i.e. this project) has started as a simplification of our big brother! If you want to know more in this paper about Integration between instruments and grid is described how the “big” Instrument Element has been developed. While if you have some interest in building your own CMS experiment you may look at the suggested link.
