Abstract : This paper presents the first step toward a computational steering environment based on CORBA. This environment, called EPSN, allows the control, the data exploration and the data modification for numerical simulations involving an iterative process. In order to be as generic as possible, we introduce an abstract model of steerable simulations. This abstraction allows us to build steering clients independently of a given simulation. This model is described with an XML syntax and is used in the simulation by some source code annotations. EPSN takes advantage of the CORBA technology to design a communication infrastructure with portability, interoperability and network transparency. In addition, the in-progress parallel CORBA objects will give us a very attractive framework for extending the steering to parallel and distributed simulations.
