SciExp² (aka SciExp square or simply SciExp2) stands for Scientific
Experiment Exploration, which provides a framework for easing the workflow of
creating, executing and evaluating experiments.
The driving idea of SciExp² is that of quick and effortless design-space
exploration. It is divided into the following main pieces:
- Launchgen: Aids in defining experiments as a permutation of different
parameters in the design space. It creates the necessary files to run these
experiments (configuration files, scripts, etc.), which you define as
templates that get substituted with the specific parameter values of each
- Launcher: Takes the files of launchgen and runs these experiments on different
execution platforms like regular local scripts or cluster jobs. It takes care
of tracking their correct execution, and allows selecting which experiments to
run (e.g., those with specific parameter values, or those that were not
successfully run yet).
- Data: Aids in the process of collecting and analyzing the results of the
experiments. Results are automatically collected into a data structure that
maintains the relationship between each result and the parameters of the
experiment that produced it. With this you can effortlessly perform complex
tasks such as inspecting the results or calculating statistics of experiment
sub-sets, based on their parameter values.
