        Dear Sage developers,

We are delighted to announce that the Horizon 2020 research proposal
OpenDreamKit was accepted by the European commission:

        opendreamkit.org

Starting next Fall and for four years, this project will provide
substantial funding to the open source computational mathematics
ecosystem, and in particular popular tools such as LinBox, MPIR,
SageMath, GAP, Pari/GP, LMFDB, Singular, and the IPython/Jupyter
interactive computing environment.

The total budget is about 7.6 million euros. The largest portion of
that will be devoted to employing an average of 11 researchers and
developers working full time on the project in Europe. We will
announce job openings in the coming weeks; stay tuned!

Additionally, the participants will contribute the equivalent of six
other people working full time. Altogether the project involves about
50 people spread over 15 sites in Europe.

This is a formidable recognition of the strength and maturity of this
ecosystem, of the power of open source development models, and of the
amazing hard work of many communities over the last decades.

The writing of the proposal itself was open and collaborative. It grew
out of a reflection on the long term needs of the community. It
benefited considerably from the feedback of many; we would like to
thank all those who helped shape this proposal and make it happen.

It is our hope that this financial support will help push forward
critical technical tasks. We tried hard in the proposal to make a
worthwhile selection of such tasks, within some constraints imposed by
the specific call. We are now legally committed to treat those tasks
in priority. This kind of long term prediction work is tough: one of
them has actually already been completed by the community in the mean
time! This is great; whenever this will happen we will be able
reprioritize the resources to whatever emerging needs that will arise.

Ultimately, this project belongs to the community. Get involved!

Cheers,
                                Nicolas

There are teams at Simula (led by Hans Petter Langtangen, where Min will be in the future), Southampton (Hans Fangohr, where Thomas will be) and Sheffield (Neil Lawrence) who will all participate. If you want to read the full proposal, it's all on github:


they also wrote a nice post about the process (which I witnessed, and I have to take my hat off to Nicholas for an incredible leadership in producing a very coherent document under crazy constraints, something that is really, really hard):


We really look forward to the opportunities this will open up on the EU side, and again, congrats to Nicholas and the entire ODK team.  Now the real work starts :)

Cheers

There's a user interfaces 'work package', which includes:

- Full convergence of Jupyter and Sage notebooks
- Collaboration with notebooks (both version control improvements and support for Matthias' live collaboration work
- Reproducible notebooks with testing of output
- Documentation and introspection for dynamically defined objects
- Structured semantic documents, possibly building on notebooks
- 3D visualisations in the notebook
- A case study building a virtual research environment for the micromagnetic field, based on Jupyter, along with notebook resources for this, and a tmpnb instance for people to play with it.

This is just a summary, for the details, see page 44 and onwards in the PDF available on opendreamkit.org.

Marcin Kostur
Dear ipython-developers,

Since I will have a small contribution in 3d visualization in this grant (T4.9 in the grant proposal - see repo;-), 
I would like to ask if there exists any ongoing effort in this topic? 

Our contribution will be focused in visualization of computational fluid dynamics fields. 
Certainly it can be fully distinct project from typical "plot3d" routines, but the optimal solution would of course be to have as much of the architecture in common as possible. 

Some very preliminary draft of our visualization architecture is at: https://github.com/mjanusz/sailfish/blob/master/doc/visualizer_design.md and we think that the idea of some kind of generalized proxy server would do the job for both large datasets as well as for surface plotting of f(x,y). 

The other opportunity is that I have some funding for subcontracting from another source which have to be spend this year. It has to go through our University and a public tender procedure, and I plan to write specs for some pre0.1 version of our concepts as soon as possible. In this action I would deeply appreciate you expertise and help.

the best

Marcin Kostur

Hi Marcin

VisPy (http://vispy.org/) has a distributed architecture very close to
what you describe. You can write your visualization in pure
Python/GLSL (the GPU language in OpenGL) and see it either on the
desktop or in the browser with WebGL, in real time. It can scale well
to huge datasets, since you can stream only a subset of the data in
real-time. It works in the Jupyter notebook out of the box. You could
also export your Python visualization to a standalone HTML/JS
interactive document. The architecture is relatively general and
modular.

It's still a bit experimental, and there is not much documentation,
but it would be great if we could work together on a common system.

Let me know if you want more details about the architecture.

Hi Marcin,

You might want to have a look at vispy (vispy.org) which has a notebook backend (but still WIP).
Cyrille Rossant is the main developper on this part.

Concerning surface rendering, you can find a lot of example on http://glumpy.github.io/gallery.html.
A lot of computation (elevation, interpolation, gridding, coloring, texturing, lighting) can be done at the browser level, minimizing data transfer.

Hi Marcin,

You can also have a look at Pythreejs

https://github.com/jasongrout/pythreejs

by Jason Grout,

which is a wrapper to threejs based on IPython widgets.

Hello Marcin,

While it's very rudimentary, and may not count as an ongoing effort, I've had some success in producing three.js output from an IPython notebook (not based on pythreejs). See previous discussion http://mail.scipy.org/pipermail/ipython-dev/2015-January/015731.html

My application is electromagnetism, so I imagine there is some overlap with the requirements of CFD plots. I'm very interested in this proposal and would love to help out somehow (time permitting!). 

regards
David

We have 3D viz in the notebook for visualizing mulitbody systems here: https://github.com/pydy/pydy.

We use threejs for it. We'll have this going at a tutorial at SciPy this year.

> OpenDreamKit was accepted by the European commission:
>
>         opendreamkit.org
>
> Starting next Fall and for four years, this project will provide
> substantial funding to the open source computational mathematics
> ecosystem, and in particular popular tools such as LinBox, MPIR,
> SageMath, GAP, Pari/GP, LMFDB, Singular, and the IPython/Jupyter
> interactive computing environment.
>
> The total budget is about 7.6 million euros. The largest portion of
> that will be devoted to employing an average of 11 researchers and
> developers working full time on the project in Europe. We will
> announce job openings in the coming weeks; stay tuned!
>
> Additionally, the participants will contribute the equivalent of six
> other people working full time. Altogether the project involves about
> 50 people spread over 15 sites in Europe.
>
> This is a formidable recognition of the strength and maturity of this
> ecosystem, of the power of open source development models, and of the
> amazing hard work of many communities over the last decades.
>
> The writing of the proposal itself was open and collaborative. It grew
> out of a reflection on the long term needs of the community. It
> benefited considerably from the feedback of many; we would like to
> thank all those who helped shape this proposal and make it happen.
>
> It is our hope that this financial support will help push forward
> critical technical tasks. We tried hard in the proposal to make a
> worthwhile selection of such tasks, within some constraints imposed by
> the specific call. We are now legally committed to treat those tasks
> in priority. This kind of long term prediction work is tough: one of
> them has actually already been completed by the community in the mean
> time! This is great; whenever this will happen we will be able
> reprioritize the resources to whatever emerging needs that will arise.
>
> Ultimately, this project belongs to the community. Get involved!
>
> Cheers,
