AIDA -- Abstract Interfaces for Data Analysis

Recent News

Older News


The goals of the AIDA project are to define abstract interfaces for common physics analysis objects, such as histograms, ntuples, fitters, IO etc.. The adoption of these interfaces should make it easier for physicists to use different tools without having to learn new interfaces or change all of their code. Additional benefits will be interoperability of AIDA compliant applications (for example by making it possible for applications to exchange analysis objects via XML).

Finally by bringing together the authors of a number of different applications we expect to gain deeper insight into the strengths and weaknesses of different applications, and to improve collaboration between different authors.

We are developing bindings to AIDA for both C++ and Java.

Analysis systems interested in, or planning to adopt, AIDA include: JAS3, The PI project in LCG-AA, Open Scientist.
