Program of work and activities

Several possible implementations of the muon and calorimeter triggers were investigated according to well defined requirements such as 'real estate', 'latency','synchronisation'.   Other considerations were the availability of resources to support the proposals.

In the June 1999 collaboration week the LHCb management supported the conclusion drawn by the trigger groupsubcommittee and  the Technical Board that the Bologna and Orsay groups should be invited to work for the trigger TDR based on a joint calorimeter trigger implementation.

Similarly  the  LHCb management decided that the Marseille group should be invited to work toward the trigger TDR for the muon trigger implementation, in close collaboration with the muon
subsystem group.

The Collaboration Board endorsed these decisions at the June 1999 meeting.

Working meetings are generally held during LHCb weeks. There are also 'ad hoc' meetings according to demand.
