Work plan 2009

1] Parallel navigation

- Finalize
- Co-work with Geometry and Generic Processes WGs

2] Command-based scoring

- Finalize box and cylindrical mesh types
- Introduce spherical mesh

3] Prototype multi-core extension of Geant4

Gene Cooperman and his student, Xin Dong, developed a prototype
thread-parallel version of Geant4 (event-level parallelism)
to take advantage of multi-core processors.

In this prototype all global data is made thread-local (thread-private).
Future work will concentrate on enhancing the spatial locality of
the code to better use the limited cache.
