"Panel Discussion on the needs of the GTAP development community"
by Foster, Ian, Thomas Hertel, Mark Horridge and Thomas Rutherford

This panel will discuss the needs of the GTAP development (rather than end-use) community moving forward, such as data and code availability, documentation, and support, in the hopes of advising the construction of an improved set of standards and tools for increased and efficient development on the various GTAP data and software platforms. The discussion will be chaired by Ian Foster with Tom Hertel, Mark Horridge, and Tom Rutherford.

Our goal is to challenge participants to take a step back from important policy and environmental applications for a moment and think about the intersection of the data and the available software tools (e.g. GTAPinGAMS, GEMPACK, etc.) as "the GTAP development platform," and to engage participants in a discussion on the future of data/software development on this platform. The supposition here is that users around the world are reproducing applications, large and small (e.g. similar versions of the same code customized to new regions), and that, by streamlining the sharing, communication, and development process, there is significant potential to expand productivity and improve the platform.
