CoMSES Net, the Network for Computational Modeling in Social and Ecological Sciences, joins the NSF West Big Data Innovation Hub as a spoke in NSF's new national Big Data network. CoMSES Net is dedicated to fostering open and reproducible scientific computation through cyberinfrastructure and community development.Learn more
This NSF-funded Spoke Project will update and extend the CoMSES Net Computational Model Library to enhance the user experience and facilitate knowledge discovery of model-based science and model code. To better enable reproducible science, we plan to build shareable containerized environments for computational models. These environments will archive essential provenance metadata, dependencies, computational pipelines, and analyses used to derive visualizations or statistically-significant findings. We will be working with the WBDIH to convene a regional Working Group for developing community standards and best practices for open model-based science.
