JSAMP is currently developed by Mark Taylor (firstname.lastname@example.org), working in the Astrophysics Group at Bristol University. It was originally developed within the UK's AstroGrid project, and has also been supported by STFC grants ST/H008470/1, ST/I00176X/1 and ST/J001414/1, and by Microsoft Research. All of this support is gratefully acknowledged. Many members of the SAMP community have provided valuable input and help with development; special mentions go to Thomas Boch, Laurent Bourgès, Sylvain Lafrasse, Jonathan Fay, Paul Harrison, Luigi Paioro, John Taylor and Ivan Zolotukhin.
