> Dear MIDAS users,
> We would like to announce a third MIDAS workshop at TRIUMF on Aug 7, 2019.
> Stefan Ritt will again be visiting TRIUMF at this time.
> The overall goal of the workshop is to present new features in MIDAS, to discuss
> future changes and to hear experiences from different experiments.
> We expect that some participants will connect remotely to the workshop; we will
> setup a video-conferencing option. The exact time of the workshop will be
> decided later and will be optimized based on the geographic distribution of
> remote attendees. So please let us know if you want to attend remotely. We are
> also happy for people to come in person to TRIUMF.
> A (very) preliminary agenda includes
> - New default mhttpd pages and new APIs for custom pages
> - Conversion of MIDAS to C++
> - new C++ based frontend framework (tmfe and mvodb from ALPHA-g)
> - MySQL/Postgres database for storing ODB configurations
> - Plans for updating history plotting
> - Using MIDAS with an online trigger farm
> - new C++ multithreaded flow analyzer (manalyzer from ALPHA-g)
> But please suggest other topics; we also hope to hear reports from particular
