Capsis can be used to transfer models to end-users. All Capsis modellers may transfer their models to their partners by building and sharing a customized installer containing all the free licensed core of the platform + their model (excluding the models of the other modellers to agree with the Capsis charter).

The modellers may keep track of their transfer/distribution/training actions here (french or in english).

  • A Luberon2 practice session in a GenTree European project workshop (Francois Lefèvre, INRAE URFM Avignon, 16.12.2019)

Luberon2 was used for a short practice session (1h30) during a training workshop for ~20 participants on “Methods in forest conservation genetics” organised by the project GenTree December 2019. The objective was to illustrate the potential impacts of silviculture on the genetic diversity.

The challenge was to have all participants make their own simulations on a demo case in such a short session, with no previous experience in silviculture and without knowing anything about CAPSIS. Participants had just been asked to install java 1.8 on their computers before the training, based on the recommandations of the CAPSIS web page. An installer of Luberon2 had been created (very easy and straghtforward), and the .jar file was simply distributed at the begining of the session with a simple instruction to install.

Technically, everything was very easy: no surprise with the java version, immediate and successful installation of the module for all participants with no exception, great! The introductive presentation of (i) the platform, (ii) the specific content of the module Luberon2 and (iii) the particular scenario in the demo took more time than expected, because it raises a lot of questions. Still, participants had time to run at least one silviculture scenario fully by themselves, and Francois Lefèvre ran the others “live” on his computer projected on the screen, with their support. The participants very much enjoyed the exercise.

To conclude: it was technically easy (but I heard that installing java 1.8 had been sometimes troublesome: do it in advance), more comfortable would have been a 2h time slot including the installation, the simulation plan was a bit too ambitious, i.e. long, for this practice.
