The Stardis consortium

The aim of the Stardis consortium is to support the development, maintenance, support and distribution of the Stardis software environment. This software includes the Stardis-Solver library, the Stardis simulation program and the Stardis-Green post-processing utility.

Why subscribe to the consortium offer?

The free license of the Stardis environment already grants its users the right to freely run the software, study its behavior, modify its source code or redistribute it. In addition, the Stardis consortium enables members, not only to pool their resources to help perpetuate and extend Stardis, but also to participate in its orientation and development choices.

All members of the consortium share the same conditions, including being a member of the Consortium Committee. Once a year this commitee meets to review the achievements and the allocation of resources of the past year. It is during this meeting that the orientation and development choices of Stardis are also debated.

The members of the consortium also benefit from an annual review of the Stardis environment. Beyond the presentation of the new functionalities, this review offers a lecture on the source codes. This not only helps grasp the link between the physical concepts and the source code that implements them, but also trains members on the source code infrastructure and thus enables them to modify it.

From an administrative point of view, the Stardis consortium is not a legal structure; it is a service offer proposed by |Méso|Star>. Joining the consortium simply comes down to subscribing to this service offer.
