2012 egu foss_splinter_session

  1. 1. Splinter Session SPM1.41 Free and Open Source Software in the Geosciences TUESDAY 17:30 hours Room SM6 See you there Alessandro Frigeri / Peter Löwe
  2. 2. Working with Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) in Science ?
  3. 3. Working with Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) in Science ? Welcome home !
  4. 4. Nightly inspiration Motto of the “Secession” "To every age its art. To art its freedom." "Der Zeit ihre Kunst. Der Kunst ihre Freiheit."
  5. 5. It's time to talk about FOSS -in Science To every age its SCIENCE. To SCIENCE its freedom.
  6. 6. Free Software according to the Free Software Foundation
  7. 7. Why FOSS at EGU ? ● Will EGU become a hacker fest ? ● ● Will it turn into a software trade show ? ● ● Will we discuss LATEX fonts ? ● Very unlikely
  8. 8. How are scientists using FOSS ? ● Scientists apply and communicate FOSS: ● To “forge” new research tools ● FOSS to implement algorithms ● To extend existing tools & apply them for new uses ● To share their work in the scientific and FOSS communities ● ● ● Scientists aren't professional programmers. They do ● “tools which work (well enough)” ● “proof of concept”
  9. 9. Introduction: Our turn ● Alessandro Frigeri ● Istituto Nazionale di Astrofisica ● FOSS GIS since 1995 OSGEO Italy ● Planetary Geology / Subsurface Radar Sounder ● ● Peter Löwe ● German Reserach Centre for Geosciences ● FOSS GIS since 1998 FOSSGIS Germany ● Tsunami Early Warning Systems / Data Visualisation ● FOSS IS THE COMMON BASE OF OUR DAILY WORK
  10. 10. FOSS in Science = FOSSIS ● Communicate findings, learn from others ● Connect & network with FOSS practioners from all scientific fields ● Support the “next generation” of scientists using and promoting FOSS in Science. ● ● Everybody can participate – not limited to Scientists ● Everbody will benefit ●
  11. 11. Tasks for FOSSIS ● Knowledge ● advancing, ● sharing and ● preservation (“Keepers of the Flame – since 1995”) ● ● Follow the scientific method ● “Reproducible research vs. non-reproducible research”
  12. 12. FOSSIS Issue: Code Citation ● Recognition of scientific work by peers: Reviewed Articles, Conferences like EGU ● ● Recognition for FOSSIS by peers @ EGU ? Not there yet ● ● Recognition of advances in “FOSS in Science” is needed
  13. 13. Example ● Current research leads to new database tools, ● these are shared and become used worldwide. ● This DOES NOT improve one's citation record - yet. ● Is community-accepted FOSS-code peer- reviewed ?
  14. 14. Ideas for EGU 2013 ● A ESSI-session for “FOSSIS technical solutions” (derived from other topical sessions) ? ● ● A FOSSIS price for young scientists ? ● Innovative FOSS use in a scientific field ? ● Unheard of combined use of FOSS tools ? ● ● Tangible web-presence/contact point for FOSSIS at EGU
  15. 15. Introduction: Your turn ● Who are you ? ● What are your fields of science ? ● What are your FOSS tools ? ● Free Spatial Data – Open Street Map …? ● ● ● What do you expect from next years FOSSIS session at EGU ?
  16. 16. Thanks for listening.
  17. 17. Thanks for listening. Let's start talking. Thanks for listening. Let's start talking. ploewe @ gfz-potsdam.de alessandro.frigeri @ ifsi-roma.inaf.it
