Scilab, developed at INRIA in the Méta2 project is a software similar to Matlab that allows scientific applications to be developed using an interactive environment on a workstation running Unix or Windows. In this paper, we present the current version of \scip, a extension of this software that supports the execution of parallel jobs within \sci. Using simple commands and the same interface as \sci, \scip\ allows users to start \sci\ on a parallel machine or a network of workstations (NOWs), therefore giving access to the computation power and huge aggregate memory sizes. From the \sci\ interactive environment, users can spawn several other \sci\ processes, executing remote \sci\ scripts, which can then communicate between each other. Finally, processes can print/plot their results. There are many research directions around this project and we give an overview of the current and future developments.
