"Furthermore, many involved contributors make use of scientific research papers while looking for inspiration to solve the more complex problems involved in writing software. The Free Software community also contributes in a practical way to science: the Avogadro project, grown out of the KDE educational application Kalzium develops an advanced molecular editor designed for use in computational chemistry, molecular modeling, bioinformatics, materials science, and related areas. Last Akademy, an initiative was developed by Celeste Lyn Paul to bring KDE and science even closer.

"We conducted a short interview with Celeste, member of the KDE e.V. board, usability specialist within KDE and Senior Interaction Architect at User­-Centered Design, Inc. We also interviewed Laura Dragan, researcher at the Digital Enterprise Research Institute and the National University of Ireland, Galway and writer of a technical paper for Akademy 2009. They explained to us what the Technical Papers are about."
