In order to help address future needs for CERN’s LHC (Large Hadron Collider—the world’s largest particle accelerator), researchers at CERN, SURFsara, and Intel have been rethinking approaches for supplying extraordinary new levels of Monte Carlo-based simulations. Future upgrades to the LHC will result in dramatically increased particle collision rates. Following collisions at the LHC experiments, calorimeters measure the energy a particle loses as it passes through the detector. Interpreting data from calorimeters is done through Monte Carlo-based simulations which effectively reconstruct the collisions.
