Abstract

CHEP Conferences are dedicated to a quite specific scientific computing domain, and deal with rather specialised software, developed for the needs of the High Energy Physics community. The sheer size of this community created an environment which until recently has been to a large extent isolated from the mainstream computing. There is however an emerging trend for the computing solutions to spill outside the traditional laboratory boundaries, benefiting from becoming less domain-specific. This paper summarises the panel discussion held at the CHEP'13 conference with the goal to answer the questions, why the mainstream software approaches are not always suitable for the High Energy Physics community, and why its own solutions so far enjoyed little popularity in other domains?
