This talk gives an overview of the activities and projects of the Eclipse Science Working Group. The Science Working Group is now three years old and this talk gives a summary of the internation group's efforts to build scientific software at scale together.
This talk describes some of the key projects in these areas. In particular we look at the common data structures project Eclipse January, the 'numpy for Java'. We go into why there is a need for scientific computing in Java, how this project works and how to get involved.
This talk will also give an overview of projects in other areas such as visualisations (Eclipse Advanced Visualisation Project, Rich Beans), workflows (Triquetrum) and Python scripting (EASE). We also look at some of the rich, open-source scientific workbenches that are being used to advance science in their specific domains, as well as the newer projects such as XACC, a framework for hybrid-quantum computing.
