Technical Meeting on SHI Software Engineering at the IDC

  Vienna, VIC
  26 Jun 2023 - 27 Jun 2023

Objectives: 

This meeting allows state signatories to learn about software development efforts at the IDC. Several efforts are ongoing to improve the software in use at the IDC, and NDC software shared with state signatories via NDC-in-a-Box. The PTS is currently in Phase 3 of the IDC SHI Reengineering program, which includes a large-scale effort to improve the SHI processing system, SOH, and the Analyst Interface. The PTS will modernize the software infrastructure to make the system easier to maintain, and easier to upgrade.  The goal is a modern, maintainable, flexible, pipeline processing system. Progress is ongoing, and many states have participated in the Alpha Testers Group for Reengineering.  In addition, many other software development efforts are also ongoing to improve IDC product distribution, NIAB, routine data processing, and processing for Expert Technical Analysis.  This meeting allows experts to discuss such software updates in depth, and give review and feedback.

Participants Profile:  

Experts responsible for software development for waveform monitoring at National Data Centres.
Experts involved in software development for environmental monitoring applications, particularly in waveform methods, including signal processing, user interfaces, and database systems. 
Participants should have in-depth knowledge of at least one aspect of SHI data processing at the IDC.
