Information for Swiss LCG Grid Users

How to get an account on the local CSCS User Interface (UI)

Fill out this web application form and put the name of your VO's site contact into the principal investigator field

  • CMS: Derek Feichtinger
  • ATLAS: Sigve Haug
  • LHCb: Roland Bernet
You will get a local account on the User Interface ui.lcg.cscs.ch. Note that this is currently not laid out for intensive local working, and also there is no local job submission, i.e. you need to submit to the site through grid tools. But from the local UI you can have local dcap access to the SE, which is useful for testing or some interactive work.

Experiment specific information

Mailing lists

Two mailing lists are available for users of the PHOENIX cluster:

  • tier2-users@cscs.ch: used for broadcasting downtimes and generally technically relevant messages for users who rely on the local resources of the PHOENIX cluster (e.g. on the storage accessibility). Subscribe/unsubscribe by sending mail to tier2-users-request@cscs.ch (the email is read by a human operator, no need for special format).
  • cms-users@cscs.ch: will receive CMS specific messages in addition to all messages from the tier2-users list. Subscribe/unsubscribe by sending mail to cms-users-request@cscs.ch (the email is read by a human operator, no need for special format).


  • GGUS portal for submitting trouble tickets non specific to this site
  • ROC DECH support pages for submitting trouble tickets specific to the German and Swiss LCG centers (this shortcuts one distribution step of a GGUS submission and may be a bit faster)
  • For urgent problems you may want to contact your experiment's site contact (ATLAS: Sigve Haug, CMS: Derek Feichtinger, LHCb: Roland Bernet). These persons have a fast communication channel to the administrators. Don't abuse this channel, please.
  • For CMS site issues, you may also use the Savannah system to submit a support request to the facilitiesopscmscompinfrasup-facilities group.
