Session at the EGU General Assembly in 2019: Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) for Earth and Space Science Informatics (ESSI3.1)
The EGU General Assembly in 2019 offers many opportunities to showcase your latest research. This session might be of interest to some of you.
Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) for Earth and Space Science Informatics (ESSI3.1 )
Software is critical to the success of science. Creating and using Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) fosters contributions from the scientific community, creates a peer-reviewed and consensus-oriented environment, and promotes sustainability of science infrastructures. Providing open access to source code also permits reuse of data, reproducibility of science, and creates scientific transparency. Open science is only possible when access to data is open, and data is analysed using open source software.The session will be a forum for the latest advances in FOSS empowered research, for successful applications of existing FOSS tools for geoscientific tasks, as well as for new developments in geoscience related to FOSS.
