The objective of the SWAS center is to identify critical software and develop a plan for sustaining this software that is tailored to the needs of this unique software ecosystem. SWAS will advance and sustain workflows and application services development, with entrusted validation and verification capabilities (via a community-endorsed sustainability model), so that these systems and application services can provide the functionality and robustness required by DOE science users.
SWAS welcomes engagements with software teams and communities related to workflows and application services. We emphasize that "workflows" in this context represents the broad set of software and services users need to configure, orchestrate, and operate modern analysis, modeling, and simulation campaigns. Specifically, we seek engagement with the following communities:
The primary stakeholders of the SWAS center are workflow researchers and developers, science and engineering users, and computing centers and facilities operators:
The SWAS seedling effort is planning to organize an in-person workshop during Summer 2023.
Members of the SWAS team will be visiting several institutions and engaging in conversations with software teams and communities. Please, reach out to email@example.com for more information.
