One of the ~1000 sections of the annual "fall" (1st week December)
meeting of the American Geophysical Union (actually quite international,
and held in San Francisco for that reason, as well as its size--
AGU fills the entire Moscone Center) this year will be

> This session deals with climate-model software quality and
> transparent publication of model descriptions, software, and
> results. The models are based on physical theories but implemented
> as software systems that must be kept bug-free, readable, and
> efficient as they evolve with climate science. How do open source
> and community-based development affect software quality? What are
> the roles of publication and peer review of the scientific and
> computational designs in journals or other curated online venues?
> Should codes and datasets be linked to journal articles? What
> changes in journal submission standards and infrastructure are
> needed to support this? We invite submissions including experience
> reports, case studies, and visions of the future.
