IPRT Purpose and Goals:

Create a forum similar to I3RC and RAMI for polarization (including spherical geometry, 3D) in order to:

- bring the research community together (workshops, website)
- compare and improve models
- provide benchmark results
- provide information about free codes
- develop new and faster, publicly available codes
- provide input data such as scattering matrices and BPDFs (bidirectional polarization distribution functions)
