Give us a little Slack

With such a large international collaboration, the small-scale “working together” that has to happen can be challenging. DUNE collaborators are finding that an instant-messaging platform makes it easy to conduct free-flowing discussions and to share code, images and other files. Slack — with a “k” — is the chosen platform…

To identify key signatures and help determine requirements for supernova burst physics in DUNE, the SN group convened a focused meeting last November. A workshop in March followed, and another in August is scheduled. Requirements on the DAQ and cross section modeling are evolving…
