Welcome to the OpenStack Scientific Working Group home page.
Please cite this working group using the #scientific-wg tag on listservs, github, blogs, twitter and other social infrastructure.


Aim: Explore opportunities for cross-institutional collaboration and compatibility around use of OpenStack for use by researchers, scientists, academics and developers. {To be further specified at the Austin OpenStack Summit}


  • HPC/HTC Infrastructure
  • Research Data Infrastructure
  • Application Infrastructure
  • Social Infrastructure
  • Create opportunities for the scientific community to engage the wider OpenStack community, i.e. industry,


The default communication of our members is via the following open community mailing list:

 *--> user-committee@lists.openstack.org

Please append email subject lines with "[scientific-wg]".

Please use the hashtag "scientific-wg" for tagging any etherpad URLs, code, blogs posts, scientific research and/or other social publishing platforms.


Face-to-face meetings occur bi-annually at the OpenStack summit, please see the conference programme for dates/times.

To propose a virtual meeting (i.e. IRC/chat-room meeting, conference call or other) please email the mailing list.


Please nominate yourself and/or fellow colleagues to this working group via the following etherpad:


Nominations will be reviewed by the chairs of the working groups during OpenStack summits.


Significant dates for the working group (in reverse chronological order):

  • [Please add latest activity for the #scientific-wg here at the top of this list]
  • A proposal for hosting a face-to-face working group meeting was drafted at the following document: https://docs.google.com/document/d/10d7XDC1yw3thjxMMC1EXJlfmMAcjkfj2wnhH2MJgh9k/edit
  • The group was approved by the OpenStack foundation's User Committee board and wiki page minted on 15th January 2016.
  • The original proposal and call for nominations was drafted via this etherpad: https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/scientific-wg
  • The #scientific-wg originated from a conversation in the hallways of the Tokyo OpenStack summit (Oct 2015), ideas originating from John Taylor, Paul Calleja, Stig Telfer, Jonathan Proulx, David F. Flanders, Lauren Sell & Tom Fifield.
