Open-Source Development Experiences in Scientific Software: The HANDE Quantum Monte Carlo Project

2015 Journal of Open Research Software  
In the course of preparing a public, open-source release, we have taken this opportunity to step back and look at what we have done and what we hope to do in the future.  ...  We pay particular attention to development processes, the approach taken to train students joining the project, and how a flat hierarchical structure aids communication  ...  This enables scientists to spend more time pursing new ideas and less time resolving problems already solved by other groups, hence reducing the collective time to productive science.  ...

Examples galleries generated by interactive genetic algorithms

Dimitri Masson, Alexandre Demeure, Gaëlle Calvary
2011 Procedings of the Second Conference on Creativity and Innovation in Design - DESIRE '11  
Generating new ideas The variations that generate new ideas are said to be blind in the sense that there is no way to decide a priori which variations will produce good results in the long term.  ...  However, those galleries are hand crafted and thus limited and cumbersome to build. In this paper, we claim for tools for supporting both the production and exploration of examples..  ...  ACKNOLEDGEMENT We thank the European project ITEA UsiXML (2009-2012) for their support to this work.  ...
