The Cyberinfrastructure Shell (CIShell) 0.2.1 and the Network Workbench Tool 0.2.0 has been released! In addition, the Network Workbench Community Wiki is now open!


About The Cyberinfrastructure Shell
The Cyberinfrastructure Shell (CIShell) is an open source, community-driven application/specification for the integration and utilization of datasets, algorithms, tools, and computing resources. Algorithm integration support is built in for Java and most other programming languages (algorithm integration guide coming soon). Being Java based, it will run on almost all platforms. The software and specification is released under an Apache 2.0 License.

About the Network Workbench Tool
The Network Workbench (NWB) Tool is a large-scale network analysis, modeling and visualization toolkit for biomedical, social science and physics research. It is a standalone desktop application and can be run on multiple platforms including Windows, Linux and Mac OSX. It is built on Cyberinfrastructure Shell framework to integrate various datasets and algorithms. Although the framework is developed using JAVA, it can integrate algorithms developed by other programing languages such as FORTRAN, C and C++.

About the NWB Community Wiki
The Network Workbench Community Wiki is a place for users of the Network Workbench Tool , the Cyberinfrastructure Shell, or any other CIShell based program to get, upload, and request algorithms and datasets to be used in their tool. This site is here so that the community can work together to create a tool which will meet their needs and the needs of the scientific community at large.


New Features
* Algorithm meta-data printing (useful for giving credit to algorithm writers and others involved among other uses)
* More flexible static executable algorithm integration templates
* Many new algorithms and converters to use
* Bug fixes (Please submit any new bugs here)
