Dear SCIRun Users,

We are writing a new NIH grant proposal that would fund additional SCIRun maintenance and development, and we need updated data on how SCIRun is being used in the biomedical community.  We would very much appreciate it if you could take a moment to fill in the blanks below.  (To minimize list traffic, please reply just to me, not the whole list.)

   Your name and affiliation: ____________________________
   Brief description of your biomedical project(s) that use SCIRun: __________________________________
       NIH grant number(s), if applicable: _____________
   Brief description of how you're using SCIRun in above project(s): __________________________________

While you're thinking about it, please send in your reply now -- before you get too busy or forget.  At the very latest, we need all replies by September 7th.

To date, SCIRun has been primarily developed and supported by the NIH-NCRR Center for Integrative Biomedical Computing (CIBC).  I'm happy to report that the Center was successfully renewed this past year, so CIBC will continue to conduct research and develop software for at least the next five years!  The SCIRun development work that we are proposing in this new grant application will extend the scope of what CIBC currently has planned for SCIRun -- we would be adding support for Python scripting and provenance, improving the usability and extending the capabilities of the Viewer, upgrading the Network Editor to Qt and making it both more powerful and easier to use, adding a suite of new mechanisms for data import/export, etc.  If you find SCIRun useful, this is a great chance to help support its continued development.

This is also a great time to send us feedback.  Are there other new technical features you'd like to see added into SCIRun?  Is there a new biomedical domain that you'd like to see SCIRun applied to?  You have our attention -- fire away!

Thanks in advance for your help.
