CESWP is a web application where Space Physicists can store, share and execute their science models. For our purposes a model is a program that simulates a physical process occurring in space, example: the shape of the earth's magnetic field as it is hit by a coronal mass ejection.
A researcher can store her program at the CESWP online site. Along with her software she records some metadata, in particular:

For the record, CESWP stands for Cloud-Enabled Space Weather Modelling and Data Assimilation Platform. CESWP was conceived by Dr Robert Rankin. CESWP development was funded by CANARIE, guided by Dr Rankin and managed by Cybera. It is hosted at the Department of Physics at the University of Alberta.
CESWP is a sister project of CSSDP, the Canadian Space Science Data Portal.
