Dear All,

Here are some updates about the workshop day titled "DAWN - Eclipse Science Working Group workshop".

The morning session will focus on presentations from different Eclipse Science Working Group contributors or closely related projects such as (EASE<https://eclipse.org/ease/>, January<https://projects.eclipse.org/projects/technology.january>, RichBeans<https://projects.eclipse.org/projects/technology.richbeans>, Scanning, DAWNSci<http://www.eclipse.org/dawnsci/>...). The hands-on sessions will take place in the afternoon and will include example of such projects including the Eclipse Advanced Scripting Environment (EASE), DAWN and one of its component, DAWN4DAWN (a full Java development environment to develop custom DAWN plugins). At the end of these workshops you will be able to customize your eclipse/RCP application UI with some python scripting and implement your own DAWN plugins.

Tracy Miranda[1] from Kichwa Coders<https://kichwacoders.com/> and Torkild U. Resheim[2] from Itema<http://itema.no/>, two Eclipse enthusiasts will be joining us to present tools and technology available in the Eclipse community.

Below is the detailed workshop agenda:

09:00-9:30: Welcome + coffee

09:30-10:05: Science @ Eclipse by Tracy Miranda (Kichwa Coders) The Eclipse Science Working Group is made up of several companies and institutions collaborating on forward-looking, open source scientific tools. This talk gives an overview of the projects of the Science Working Group. This includes the foundational projects for data structures (January), visualisations (Eclipse Advanced Visualisation Project), workflows (Triquetrum) and 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.

10:05-10:35: Open source projects in Data Acquisition and Analysis software by Matt Gerring (Diamond Light Source) have helped Diamond Light Source to deliver data analysis and data acquisition products. This talk will go through the dawnsci, richbeans and scanning projects, how they are reused in products produced at Diamond Light Source, what they do and how to reuse them in your own projects.

10:35-11:00: Coffee break

11:00-11:35: DAWN4DAWN, a DAWN plugin development environment by Torkild U. Resheim (Itema) DAWN4DAWN is a full java development environment that enables developers to build their own DAWN plugins and have them run inside of the DAWN analysis workbench. Torkild will present this feature and also introduce a way to share those new developed plugins through the DAWN market place.

11:40-12:00: Eclipse January by Peter Chang (Diamond Light Source) The January project provides Java implementations of numerical data structures such as multi-dimensional arrays and matrices, including a Java equivalent to the popular Python NumPy library for n-dimensional array objects. The project also includes general purpose data classes, structures and pattern realizations that can be mapped to a wide range of scientific problems while also maintaining metadata about that information, for example CSG trees.

12:00-13:30: Lunch

13:30-15:00: Eclipse EASE in DAWN by Tracy Miranda

15:00-15:30: Coffee break

15:30-17:00: DAWN4DAWN by Torkild U. Resheim

Hoping to see many of you!
