2011 Scilab Open Source Software Contest

And the winners are…

The 10th edition of Scilab Open Source Software Contest was held in Oct 12-14, 2011, University of Science & technology Beijing, China.

The two first prizes are:

  • Rotational Inertia Toolbox, by FU Qingyu, Foshan University
    This toolbox allows to calculate the moment of inertial of a rigid body with a regular shape when the rigid body rotates around a spatial axis with an arbitrary orientation. It includes single bodies and combinations.
  • ScilabCloudV2 by Liu Zhibin, Beihang University
    This project began with the idea to make Scilab accessible through a web page. ProActive has been chosen and integrated on the server side to grant distributed computing. A GUI has been developed to manage the nodes and tasks.
