User-Centered Design

State of Software Survey

The Software Working Group collected in February 2021 information on the community’s specific software tools and practices during the Yellow Report Initiative. This software census will be essential to better understand and quantify software usage throughout the EIC community.

We will organize next the focus-group discussions that will result in user stories. These user stories will provide input to software developers as to which users they are writing software for.

The Software Working Group will repeat the survey at the end of 2021 to compare results as we continue to design and build the Electron-Ion Collider. In the meanwhile, please do not hesitate to reach out with your comments or suggestions via
