EMMC Webinar “Why set up a modelling SME when you are student? The economic impact of QuickWave software”


The webinar will be given by Dr. Malgorzata Celuch, General Director of QWED

August 23, 2019 / 12-1.30 pm CEST

Dr. Malgorzata Celuch will share her story how she founded QWED (www.qwed.eu), a Polish SME.  QWED, QuickWave – software for Electromagnetic Design,
is a general-purpose electromagnetic simulator based on the conformal Finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method and supplemented with a range of
unique models for curved boundaries, media interfaces, modal excitation, and parameter extraction. More …

EMMC-CSA: White Paper for standards of modelling software development 2.0

thumbnail of EMMC-CSA-D5.2_M15_WEB-PUv3This EMMC-CSA White Paper provides a basis for the standards of modelling software development and addresses areas such as method description, assumptions, accuracy and limitations; testing requirements; issue resolution; version control; user documentation and continuous support and resolution of issues.
The document is based on the work already carried out in the context of the EMMC to drive the adoption of software quality measures, and to ensure sustainable implementation of this EMMC initiative. Given the high level of sophistication of each of the developments which solve particular aspects of the multi-physics/chemistry spectrum of materials modelling, the industrial usefulness of individual achievements requires integration into larger software systems. Thus, guidelines and standards are needed, which will enable the exploitation of these codes.

The major outcome are guidelines for academic software developers creating materials modelling codes. In many cases, design decisions taken at an early stage have unforeseeable consequences for many years ahead. In this context, the white paper gives academic researchers a framework, which paves the way for successful integration and industrial deployment of materials modelling. This goal is achieved by addressing a range of topics including model descriptions and software architectures, implementation, programming languages and deployment, intellectual property and license considerations, verification, testing, validation, and robustness, organization of software development, metadata, user documentation, and support.

In version 2.0 an appendix with “Online resources to development of scientific software” has been added.

EMMC Expert Meeting on Open source, free software and commercially supported software for materials modelling

Date – October 25-26, 2018

Venue – tba, Paris, France

One of the main objectives of the EMMC is increasing the use of materials modelling software in the European industry. As described in the attached document, the Paris meeting serves this objective by bringing together leading European software developers and stakeholders.

The expected contribution from the invited experts will be very short impulse talks (5-10 minutes) and participation in the following discussion.

The expected outcome of this Expert Meeting will be a report on the strengths and pitfalls of different models and recommendations to increase the impact of materials modelling in the European industry. This will be achieved by impulse talks by leaders in the field and by focused discussions.
