2016 Agricultural Modelling Hackathon
July 10, 2016 - July 14, 2016
The third Science Workshop of MODEXTREME took place in Tolouse (France), in the frame of 8th Biennial Congress of the International Environmental Modelling and Software Society (iEMSs 2016).
This crop modelling hacking event aimed to focus on the code of different crop models and to investigate (a) how similar model implementations are (or not), and (b) how to enable multi-model runs. No presentations were involved, and model developers were invited to attend possibly bringing UML models of the architecture they use. The intention was to analyze the invasiveness of the modelling frameworks using common metrics and a methodological framework, and discussing its impact on biophysical modellers practice. The approach of the BioMA framework and its developments in the project MODEXTREME were discussed as one of the possible cases. The workshop generated interesting results for a future joint publication on crop model implementations.
