Open Source for Scientific Research

The Science top-level project provides a central clearinghouse for collaborative development efforts to create software for scientific research and development. These efforts strive towards the common goal of enabling reusable components across a wide variety of technologies. These components are implemented in different languages and operate across a diverse set of computing environments.

See the Science wiki for more information.

See a discussion of benefits of the Science top level project.

Steering Committee Meeting Minutes

Steering committee meetings are typically held every month. The members of the steering committee are listed at the Science Working Group Portal. The current committee has elected a chair and a secretary to help organize work. Meeting minutes are kept at working group web page

Charter

The Science Working Group Charter is available online.

Objectives

The Science Working Group (SWG) works to solve the problems of making science programs inter-operable and interchangeable by defining standards, common principles, and software development collaboration. It helps permeate concepts and capabilities to different research areas which allows serendipitous discoveries to be made.

The SWG, hosted by the Eclipse Foundation, is a collaborative effort involving industry, academia, and government to develop reusable open source software for scientific research. The SWG provides governance and infrastructure to enable a collaborative approach to producing technologies used for interdisciplinary analysis of scientific data. The group may package components to regularly release a trusted distribution of software.

Interoperability is another significant bottleneck in scientific research. To address this issue, the SWG will strive to collaboratively develop well defined interfaces, models, definitions, algorithms, and reusable software libraries, services, and applications.

The SWG will strive to become an essential forum for engagement with industry including adoption of SWG output and contribution to SWG initiatives.

More specifically:

  • To provide an infrastructure for interoperability 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 (DONE, and still open to more participants)
  • Commit to write a proposal to establish a Science IWG (In progress, see the draft charter)
  • Start of an official Eclipse Industry Working Group
  • Recruiting of new participants and industrial partners
  • Being a proud part of the Science Working Group Community
  • Being curious of what's coming next

Organization and Contact

For more information, please contact the working group steering committee.
