The Software Sustainability Institute is running a Collaborations Workshop in March.
Collaborations Workshop 2016 (CW16) takes place at The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh on 21-23 March 2016.
These workshops gives researchers from across the disciplines the chance to connect with other researchers and software developers (also known as Research Software Engineers) who can help them implement their research ideas.
Investigators and project managers can learn current best practices in software credit and how best to ensure that they are following practices which increase the impact and sustainability of their software oriented projects and staff.
Funders can gain an understanding of what policies and procedures need to be in places to best support the credit needs of the research they fund.
Publishers gain insights into what the grassroots think about future trends in publication around software citation, code/data sharing policies and artifact evaluation/reproducible research.
Trainers can gain an appreciation for emerging topics and best practices which need to be promoted amongst researchers.
Legal and Knowledge Transfer staff can better grasp software’s place in research and how and when to consult colleagues on the best ways to exploit their work.
Administrative functions of research based institutions can better understand the way software support is essential for research now and in the future; the competitive advantages associated with nurturing software based roles becomes clearer.
