The Software Sustainability Institute’s Collaborations Workshop series brings together researchers, developers, innovators, managers, funders, publishers, leaders and educators to explore best practices and the future of research software. Collaborations Workshop 2019 (CW19) will take place from Monday 1st to Wednesday 3rd April 2019 at Loughborough University in the West Park Teaching Hub.
The themes of the workshop are interoperability, documentation, training and sustainability.
The Software Sustainability Institute invites all members of the research software community to explore and discuss the themes described above and other related issues at CW19.
CW19 attendees will gain insight into the topics of Interoperability, Documentation, Training and Sustainability and how these impact and will impact on research. It is also an ideal opportunity to form collaborations (on average, attendees of CW start two new collaborations by attending) and to discuss topics proposed by attendees. CW19 is a great place to network and participants will meet many of the new and existing Software Sustainability Institute Fellows – key ambassadors in varied research domains.
Some aspects around interoperability, documentation, training and sustainability that will be covered in the workshop are:
Interoperability and documentation in research software
Training in the research environment
Best practices when connecting research software
Best practices on documentation and training
Tools to help code software that will send data to and from other software
Tools to help write documentation for end-users and developers
Tools to make training sessions more productive for learners
