Room H1C, 07/11/2013 (11:00-11:45)
With the successful establishment of a European e-Infrastructure ecosystem, the question of how to maintain and improve the scientific software base has become an urgent issue. There is a clear need for a coherent process and major efforts targeted towards enhancing the European software base for efficient use of European e-Infrastructures. Several studies and projects (e.g. IDC, EESI-2, ScalaLife, e-IRG, PRACE, to name a few) have highlighted the urgent need to establish interdisciplinary Centers of Excellence (CoEs) to support this process both in academia and the software industry. How to organize such CoEs remains an open problem with many design choices required, involving the balance between academic and industrial efforts, thematic vs. domain specific foci, and centralized vs. distributed models. The goal of this session is to further explore this space with stakeholders and make clear recommendations towards potential organizational models.
