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.

NOBUGS Conferences

There was a precursor to NOBUGS, involving only synchrotron people which served as an inspiration. This was A Workshop on Graphical User Interfaces for Synchrotron Protein Crystallography at Brookhaven National Laboratory in 1995.

NOBUGS Topics

The conference topics include, but are not limited to:

NOBUGS International Advisory Committee

The conferences are overseen by a committee. Membership and terms of reference are visible on the committee page.

NOBUGS Mailing Lists

General Mailing List

This list is intended not only for announcements (conferences, software releases, job postings from facilities), but also for requests for help/information and discussions. All people with an interest in software at X-ray, neutron and muon sources are encouraged to subscribe.

Committee Mailing List

This list is restricted to committee members.
