Scilab at 45th IEEE Conference on Decision and Control, San Diego, CA, USA

Estimado consorcio Scilab:Soy pasante de la carrera de Ingeniería en Sistemas en México. Me he quedado con la boca abierta. He probado Scilab 4.0 y realmente es un software de gran calidad. No hay nada que envidiarle a otros softwares similares. Gracias por este regalo al mundo de la educación....Continuen así... por mucho tiempo
Please take a few minutes to help us to learn about you, Scilab’s users …

Scilab in europeans and nationals projects
Scilab takes part in European project named “hArtes” funded by FP6 call5 Embedded Systems. hArtes aims to lay the foundation for a new holistic (end-to-end) approach for complex real-time embedded system design, with the latest algorithm exploration tools and reconfigurable hardware technologies.
From the application point of view, the complexity of future multimedia devices is becoming too big to design monolithic processing platforms. This is where the hArtes approach with reconfigurable heterogeneous system becomes vital.
Investments in industries and research labs are done too many times in the scientific computing area. Therefore, SCOS will propose to build up the necessary frame to make it easy through interoperability, open standards (for open or commercial applications) and using some Open Source easy-to-use tools.
Scientific Computing has to enter the world of industrialized solutions. Shared standards and interoperability should be the rule, no the exception any. This is the aim of the SCOS project: make the scientist's life easiest, sharing tools and results with its colleague when needed.
The Multidisciplinary Optimization project (OMD) is an initiative gathering public laboratories and companies around the optimization of complex systems. This project is supported by the participants and the National Agency of French Research / National Network of Software Technologies (ANR/RNTL).
Exploratory project OMD proposes the development of tools for collaborative optimization and robust. These tools will be validated on three real cases of the aircraft, space and automobile industries. They will be joined together in free Scilab software platform.
Scilab used in Eurocodes
Harmonised technical rules for the design of construction throughout Europe.

Scicos: Scilab's block diagram modeler/simulator
Developped by Metalau research-team, from INRIA Rocquencourt Research Unit, Scicos is a graphical dynamical system modeler and simulator toolbox.
Scicos is used for applications in control, communication, signal processing, queuing systems, electromechanical, physical and biological systems.
With Scicos you can create block diagrams to model and simulate the dynamics of hybrid dynamical systems and generate standalone C source code.
Note that Scicos is delivered into Scilab.
