The EPIC collaboration at the Electron-Ion Collider recently laid the groundwork for its software infrastructure. Large parts of the software ecosystem for EPIC mirror the setup from the Key4hep project, for example DD4hep for geometry description, and EDM4hep/PODIO for the data model. However, other parts of the EPIC software ecosystem diverge from Key4hep, for example for the event processing framework (JANA2 for EPIC versus Gaudi for Key4hep). The algorithms initiative by the EPIC collaboration tries to foster cross-community collaboration and algorithm-sharing by providing a framework- and experiment-independent approach to digitization and reconstruction algorithms. In this talk we will focus on the design choices behind Algorithms and showcase real-world integration of algorithms with both JANA2 and Gaudi.
