Careful analysis of these phenomena require specialized simulation programs. A handful of such codes has been written independently by various researchers over the recent years, showing an important demand for this type of study. In this paper we describe the available codes and discuss various approaches to Ionization Profile Monitor simulations. We propose benchmark conditions to compare these codes between themselves and we collect data from various devices to benchmark codes against the measurements. Finally we present a community effort with a goal to discuss the codes, exchange simulation results and to develop and maintain a new, common codebase.
