Advanced software plays a fundamental role for large scientific projects - from designing experimental instruments to acquiring, reducing, and analyzing the resulting data.

The primary goal of the S2I2-HEP conceptualization project is to prepare a strategic plan for a potential NSF Scientific Software Innovation Institute (S2I2) to develop software for experiments taking data in the "High-Luminosity Large Hadron Collider" (HL-LHC) era in the 2020s. In addition, we are working with the HEP Software Foundation to prepare a larger HEP Community White Paper (CWP) describing a global roadmap for HEP Software and Computing R&D for the 2020s. To this end we are organizing a number of workshops between Fall 2016 and Summer 2017.
