The Open Modeling Foundation Initiative: an International Partnership for Next Generation Modeling of Human and Earth Systems
Proposed in 2018, the Open Modeling Foundation (OMF) initiative aims to establish an international open science community to enable the next generation modeling of human and natural systems. The OMF is envisioned as an alliance of modeling organizations that develops and administers a community-wide open modeling standards and best practices for the social, ecological, environmental, and geophysical sciences. It will support these efforts though informational, data, and technological resources for the scientific communities it serves. This webinar reviews the history of the OMF, its current status, future plans, and how scientists can participate in this initiative.
