A Study of the Merits of Precision Time Protocol (IEEE-1588) Across High-Speed Data Networks / Oliver, David (CERN) ; Otto, Adam Jedrzej (Ministere des affaires etrangeres et europeennes (FR)) ; Neufeld, Niko (CERN)
By using Precision Time Protocol across high-speed data networks, it is possible to achieve good time synchronisation without requiring the use of custom switches. Even under heavy network loads, the attainable precision far exceeds that which is possible with Network Time Protocol, and is sufficient for many applications. [...]

LHCb GPU Acceleration Project / Badalov, Alexey (University of Barcelona (ES)) ; Campora Perez, Daniel Hugo (CERN) ; Neufeld, Niko (CERN) ; Vilasis Cardona, Xavier (University of Barcelona (ES))
The LHCb detector is due to be upgraded for processing high-luminosity collisions, which will increase the load on its computation infrastructure from 100 GB/s to 4 TB/s, encouraging us to look for new ways of accelerating the Online reconstruction. The Coprocessor Manager is our new framework for integrating LHCb’s existing computation pipelines with massively parallel algorithms running on GPUs and other accelerators. [...]

Exploring improvements to the LHCb ELOG electronic logbook / Leung, Philip (CERN) ; Neufeld, Niko (CERN)
ELOG, the electronic logbook used by LHCb, has been suffering from poor accessibility and slow performance. Investigating revealed that a combination of inefficient searches, caused mainly by frequent reads of files stored in NFS, and an inability for the server to handle concurrent operations were rendering the service unusable for up to a minute when users performed search or sort operations.

This note describes a tool developed to distinguish between photons and neutral pions that are reconstructed as a single cluster in the LHCb ECAL. The separation is achieved by using the fact that electromagnetic clusters produced by these two kinds of particles have different shape [...]

Analysis of the performance of GEM chambers for the upgrade of the LHCb muon system / Pinci, Davide (Sezione INFN di Roma La Sapienza, Roma, Italy) ; Santimaria, Marco (Sezione INFN di Roma La Sapienza, Roma, Italy)
Triple-GEM chambers, so far used in the inner region of the M1 muon station, are the ideal candidates to replace the MWPCs in the regions where, after the upgrade, the particle rate will be as high as 2 MHz/cm$^2$. Testing the triple-GEM efficiency and time resolution with different gaseous mixtures is therefore a significant step in evaluating the expected performance of the muon system after the upgrade scheduled in 2018, when the luminosity in LHCb will reach $2 \times 10^{33}$ cm$^2$ s$^{-1}$.

Study of the performance of the MWPC single gap / Pinci, Davide (Sezione INFN di Roma La Sapienza, Roma, Italy)
In this note we report the results of measurements performed with cosmic rays on single gaps of different LHCb Muon Chambers. Their main performance have been investigated in order to achieve a better comprehension of their behavior for optimizing the chamber working conditions..
