Computing plays an essential role in all aspects of high energy physics. As
computational technology evolves rapidly in new directions, and data throughput
and volume continue to follow a steep trend-line, it is important for the HEP
community to develop an effective response to a series of expected challenges.
In order to help shape the desired response, the HEP Forum for Computational
Excellence (HEP-FCE) initiated a roadmap planning activity with two key
overlapping drivers -- 1) software effectiveness, and 2) infrastructure and
expertise advancement. The HEP-FCE formed three working groups, 1) Applications
Software, 2) Software Libraries and Tools, and 3) Systems (including systems
software), to provide an overview of the current status of HEP computing and to
present findings and opportunities for the desired HEP computational roadmap.
The final versions of the reports are combined in this document, and are
presented along with introductory material.
