Requested Preparations
To avoid waiting times for downloads and installation processes during the workshop, we ask all participants to check if their system meets these requirements. Both, AMIRIS and Backbone require Python and Spine-Toolbox for the version shown in this tutorial.

Check Python
You can test if you have Python available by using the command python –version. This should show your Python version if the Python command was found. Note that if you use a Python environment manager you can have several Python versions on your system side by side. If you do not have Python installed on your system, you may use e.g. conda or mamba. We will use a Python 3.9 installation for this tutorial.

AMIRIS also requires Java JDK 11 or above. It operates on Windows, Linux and Mac. In this tutorial, we will use AMIRIS integrated within Spine-Toolbox.

Check Java
You can test if you have a JDK by using the command java –version (or java -version on some systems). This should show your Java version if Java was found. If you get a command not found error, or if Java version is less than 11 please download and install a recent JDK from e.g. here.


Backbone requires a working GAMS installation and licence.
