    • Workflow systems - Integration barrier?
  • Interested in
    • better visualization tools for 2d plots
    • jobs management, simulation management
    • periodic system classes, scientific constants
    • file bugs for swt xygraph
    • Matlab replacement designed by the working group
    • improve xy plotting functionality, work together to get this done
    • performant visualization for dynamic mesh
    • Funding for research projects
    • teaching exchange
    • state-of-the-art knowledge exchange
  • Need
    • 3d rendering on huge 3d models
    • Support for graph (and graph-layout) algorithms
    • ISO surface renderer
  • Dimensions/units -> UoMo
  • Other
    • wrapping up algorithms and libraries to java and as eclipse bundles
    • matlab -> python it provides a broader set of scientific libraries
    • python integration, pydev

  • Visualization - common visualization working group
  • System Engineering - numerical part
  • Crystal structures
  • Conclusion
    • Matthew will provide a one-pager of 2 or 3 points we like to achieve next year and one to two pages vision of the working group
  • Further steps
    • Definition and Vision by End of November -> just write, not too long
    • Review by all members
    • Who takes leadership?
    • Vision document (1,2 pages)
      • defined scope what to accomplish; common scientific building blocks
    • Common scientific platform?
