Scientific Software math_on_paper like

While large IT houses houses (Intel, NAG) develop software to highlight the qualities of their hardware, or to serve certain number-crunching applications (respectively other, versatile, but student level applications, MathWorks) a significant demand-sector in scientific software remains part- or not- covered at all.
It is not uncommon for the scientific/engineering community to approach and do the initial ground-laying work in such IT-endeavours, be that the WWW, data-processing, etc.
In this view, the talk is an open call to the scientific/engineering community to ground a SCIlib similar to the numerical and statistics part of CERNlib – encompassing, however, advanced toolkits, contributed from various applications, individually developed.
