The recording of the EMMC-Webinar on Best Practices for Software Development you find here.


The webinar is based on the White Paper for standards of modelling software development , where the EMMC-CSA provides guidelines for standards of modelling software development.
The issues addressed in the paper include method description, assumptions, accuracy and limitations, testing requirements, issue resolution, software licensing, version control and user documentation as well as continuous support.

The aim of the webinar is to extend awareness of these topics which are an integral part of professional software development but often overlooked by academic software developers.

The goal is to increase the value of academic software through adaption of these guidelines in the academic community.

In this webinar EMMC software experts will introduce the guidelines of the white paper.
After the presentation there will be a Q&A for the detail discussion of the recommendations and applicability of the recommendations.

The webinar will be presented by Dr. Kurt Stokbro (SYNOPSYS) and Dr. Volker Eyert (Materials Design SARL).

EMMC kindly invites Materials Model Software Developers and Users to attend the webinar to learn more and discuss about:

  • 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 case you have any questions regarding the webinar please don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Natalia Konchakova.



The organisation of the webinar is supported
by the funded EU project (EMMC-CSA, Grant Agreement No. 723867).

Thus, the participation in the EMMC-Webinar is free.
