Open Source Initiative for Scientific Development Tools (preliminary phase)

Objectives

Several universities, research facilities and companies still use and develop Eclipse RCP applications to solve problems within a certain scientific scope. This page shall give an overview of existing applications. Moreover, it demonstrates that Eclipse applications are well suited for the needs of scientific research both in non-commercial/educational and commercial context. Hence, the intention is to enable a vivid scientific community within the Eclipse Foundation. The goals of such a working group and community are the following:

  • To provide an infrastructure for interoparibility between various scientific applications
  • To prevent reinventing the wheel over and over again
  • To enable an interdisciplinary research and development
  • To solve problems as a community and hence to lower the costs of development
  • To inspire students and scientists to use and utilize open source software
  • To help industrial partners to get better products

Roadmap

Goal of this initiative is to establish an Industry Working Group with a scientific scope. At the current stage, we're collecting projects and interested partners. The aim is to find as much interested parties as possible. A wide range of applications and needs allows us to create a common roadmap that fits the needs of all of its participants.

  • Preliminary phase of collecting projects and partners (we are here)
  • Get together at the EclipseCon 2013 in Boston?
  • Commit to write a proposal to establish a Science IWG
  • Start of an official Eclipse Industry Working Group
  • Recruiting of new participants and industrial partners
  • Being a proud part of the Eclipse Community
  • Being curious of what's coming next

Organization and Contact

  • Philip Wenig "philip (dot) wenig (at) gmx (dot) net"
  • Ralph Müller "ralph (dot) mueller (at) eclipse (dot) org"
