Collaboration Yields Open Source Technology for Computational Science


The gap between the computational science and open source software communities just got smaller – thanks to an international collaboration among national laboratories, universities and industry.

The Eclipse Science Working Group (SWG), a global community for individuals and organizations who collaborate on commercially-friendly open source software, recently released five projects aimed at expediting scientific breakthroughs by simplifying and streamlining computational science workflows. The open source projects, which represent years of development and thousands of users, are the product of intense collaboration among SWG members including ORNL, Diamond Light Source, Itema AS, iSencia, Kichwa Coders, Lablicate GmbH, and others.
