The Presentations

Guest Presentations

The purpose of the Guest Presentations was to give a real view of using CCPForge and its tools in individual development and distribution projects. We were joined by Dr Sarah Al-Assam (Oxford), Dr Jonathan Hogg (RAL) and Prof Keith Refson (Royal Holloway). They each made a short presentation on their experiences of CCPForge and the support they recieved from SESC.

Discussion

The final session of the meeting was given over to a discussoin on future meetings and the requirements of the projects represented at the meeting. A number of subjects for future workshops were indentified:

SESC will be running further workshops over the next few months in which we may feature some of these subjects.

The Software Engineering Support Centre (SESC) is a five-year EPSRC-funded programme to support good software development approaches in computaional science and to help those developing scientific software to produce better quality software. CCPForge (http://ccpforge.cse.rl.ac.uk) is a collaborative development environment, originally for the Collaborative Computational Projects (CCP) community but now it has now broaden it scope to all UK computational research and development projects and their collaborators.
