High-Quality Software Development in Academia: (Un-)Feasible?

Dr.-Ing. Klaus Iglberger, University Erlangen-Nürnberg

8 Nov 2012, 17:00; Location: S4|10-1

Software development in academia is subject to a set of special circumstances that make the development of sustainable, maintainable, and high-quality software particularly difficult. In this talk I address these problems, explain why academia might be facing substantials problems in years to come, but also why the creation of maintainable software is especially important in academia. However, based on these requirements I will also present possible strategies to mitigate these problems. By means of the waLBerla project, today one of the leading CFD tools based on the lattice Boltzmann method, I will demonstrate how sustainable software development in academia can be made feasible.
