Status report on Open Source/Open Science 1999

Stephen Adler
 Brookhaven National Laboratory

Speaker: Stephen Adler

  Over 200 people attended the first ever conference which dealt directly with the use of Open Source software in the hard sciences, this past October at Brookhaven National Laboratory. A report on what transpired at the conference is given herein. Topics ranging from a scientists ability to be sited for their software work, to the use of Open Source software in large scale computing facilities like the one being built for RHIC offline work, to medical imaging, data analysis and visualization and large scale file systems were given by scientists and software developers from both universities and private industry. Because of the intense software scope of the research done by those who present their work at CHEP 2000, and because of the spin off applications which would be capitalized most effectively within an Open Source framework, the CHEP community is presented with this review to encourage it to focus its development work in the Open Source arena.
