Session description:

SeisComP3 is an open-source, end-to-end, seismological software package.
It consists of modules that span data acquisition, re-distribution and
archival, automatic event detection, characterization, and notification,
as well as interactive analysis. Most functionality is available as C++
libraries together with Python wrappers. SeisComP3 supports FDSN
standards like MiniSEED, StationXML, QuakeML and webservices and the
transmission standard SeedLink. SeisComP3 was originally developed by
GFZ Potsdam for the German-Indonesian Tsunami Warning System (GITEWS).
It is now maintained and developed by GFZ Potsdam and gempa GmbH. Over
the years, a vigorous user community has formed, who also contribute
modules to SeisComP3 that compliment the existing framework, like tools
for ShakeMaps or Earthquake Early Warning. Comprehensive documentation
is provided online. User support is available via a web forum with
currently more than 250 users from all over the world. SeisComP3 is used
as the primary earthquake monitoring software by several dozens of
networks monitoring local, regional and global seismicity across the
globe. Primarily a solution for real-time monitoring and data
distribution, it is increasingly being used to generate earthquake
catalogues for off-line analysis, e.g. from temporary experiments. 10
years ago SeisComP3 was released as a public package. The anniversary is
an opportunity to bring together users, developers and interested
parties. In this session we invite contributions from all fields related
to SeisComP3, including scientists using the software for data analysis
and data centers using it for data handling and distribution. We also
welcome contributions about possible challenges facing the SeisComP3
community, and discussion on further improvements.
