The name of the workshop may sound a little odd, but it has a serious purpose. We interview the organizers of the 2021 Workshop on Sustainable Software Sustainability to learn more.
The Workshop on Sustainable Software Sustainability 2021 (WoSSS21) #WoSSS21 took place on 6-8 October 2021. A wide variety of software sustainability themes were covered in the space of Open Science, digital heritage and sustaining software efforts.

Work on the Event Organisation Guide (SSI-EOG) started around the end of Q2 in 2018. Eventually, it was released as one of our official guides in December 2020. How did it all begin, why did we produce it and what was the journey. In this blog we explore the how and why of the SSI-EOG.
In December the SSI released the first version of our Event Organisation Guide in which we collated different experiences in running events. In this post, we talk about our five top tips, based on the guide, to organise and run a successful small event or workshop.

How can we better recognise the value of software (by thinking about impact from the start and resisting ‘secret’ software)? Should funders be the default option for software support (depends on the circumstances), and what other options exist (several)? Should all research software be maintained (probably not)?
