New Opportunities for Better User Group Software

The main activity of the NOBUGS (New Opportunities for Better User Group Software) group is the organization of a series of conferences. The aim of these conferences is to foster collaboration and exchange between scientists and IT professionals working on software for X-ray, neutron and muon sources around the world. Better software for data acquisition and data analysis will increase productivity of facility users and thus maximize the scientific output.

The conference topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Collaborative Initiatives
  • Data Acquisition
  • Data Management
  • Data Formats
  • Data Reduction
  • Automation of Experiments or Processing
  • Data Analysis
  • Remote Data Acquisition or Data Analysis
  • Model Fitting
  • Data Visualization
  • Instrument Simulation
  • Web Technologies
  • Software Project Management
  • Scientific Software Engineering
  • User Facility Management
  • Scientific Databases
