Welcome to the main wiki page for the Eclipse Integrated Computational Environment (ICE)!

ICE extends the Eclipse Rich Client Platform by adding support for working with scientific computing projects and repackaging various Eclipse development tools to better support the development of scientific software. Like these other pieces of the Eclipse ecosystem, it is easy to generate custom plugins for your project, so that you can use the tools in Eclipse ICE to expose model (input) generation, job launching, data analysis and visualization capabilities for yourself or your users.

This wiki contains all the important information you need for using ICE. You can search using the search bar on the left, or get started with the links below:
