UChicago computational researchers to help analyze flood of new data from updated Large Hadron Collider

Meeting the intense data demands of the High-Luminosity LHC and enabling new discoveries will require innovative software and computing approaches for data analysis, organization and management. The new $25 million Institute for Research and Innovation in Software for High-Energy Physics, or IRIS-HEP, will meet these challenges by gathering researchers from 17 institutions, including researchers from UChicago's Enrico Fermi Institute and Department of Computer Science.
