SCIFES stands for Science FrontEnd Systems

Our goal is to catalyze wide adoption of cutting-edge scientific software by creating the optimal user friendly interface, integrated visualizer for big output data and ability to run computations remotely on cloud clusters.

Aim to enhance user experience with science software and increase availability to wider audience.

For cutting-edge science software

There exists substantial amount of cutting-edge scientific software that has been developed for years by prominent science teams from academia, national labs, foreign and domestic research institutions. All that software accumulated vast scientific knowledge and cutting-edge scientific methods.

Despite great demand and value of such software, there is one common critical obstacle to widespread usage – poor (or none) user interface. That leads to steep learning curve in using it and prevents wide adoption of the software among Industry RDs, Academia, and STEM students.

We create user friendly interface

By combining expertise in physics, engineering, and computer science, we work on the optimal user interface for the most sophisticated and cutting-edge scientific software.
We aim to provide the following user friendly environment for such software:

  • GUI for input script and command line processor: user won’t need to dig through manuals to find the right command syntax – just choose through drop down menu the appropriate command parameters, easily navigate through tree structure of the script and its help info.
  • Integrated 3D graphics previewer for output: no need for third party software to analyze data output.
  • Extensive set of established simulation examples “ready to run and view results by a button click”.

By combining those features in one integrated environment we aim to greatly reduce time needed for acquiring necessary skills in using frontier science methods and software.

First product launched - Lammpsfe

We proudly announce our first product Lammpsfe (Lammps frontend) - the graphical user interface for LAMMPS!

LAMMPS is a classical molecular dynamics code, and an acronym for Large-scale Atomic/Molecular Massively Parallel Simulator. LAMMPS has potentials for soft materials (biomolecules, polymers) and solid-state materials (metals, semiconductors) and coarse-grained or mesoscopic systems. It can be used to model atoms or, more generically, as a parallel particle simulator at the atomic, meso, or continuum scale.

LAMMPS  was created at Sandia National Laboratory, USA and is the leading Molecular Dynamics Simulator software.

New Lammpsfe is here!

We are happy to announce that the new version of Lammpsfe is available now!
Lammpsfe now combines GUI 3D viewer + movie maker for LAMMPS.

New Lammpsfe provides many features asked by our users, which include
- upgraded functionality of GUI
- support of parallel run for LAMMPS
- colorful and customized backgrounds for MDViewer
- and finally Movie maker producing videos  with the push of a button, etc...

The new Lammpsfe is more capable, faster and easy to use and teach!
Simple license rules: one user -> one license for Lammpsfe bundle of GUI + 3D viewer + movie maker  ->  3 operating systems (Linux, Mac, Windows).

The goal is to enhance user experience with LAMMPS and increase availability to wider audience.
