» New Opportunites for Better User Group Software (NOBUGS)

The term NOBUGS is a shorthand for New Opportunities for Better User Group Software. The aim of NOBUGS is to foster the collaboration between IT professionals working for X-ray, muon and neutron facilities. The intended benefit of this collaboration is better data acquisition and analysis software which helps user to get the most out of their experiments at such expensive facilities. The activities of the NOBUGS group are supervised by an international advisory committee.

The activities of the NOBUGS group include but are not limited to:

  • The organisation of the NOBUGS Conference
  • Fostering collaboration between facilities on software projects.
  • Act as a lobbying body for better scientific software
