The Software Sustainability Institute’s Collaborations Workshop series brings together researchers, developers, innovators, managers, funders, publishers, policy makers, leaders and educators to explore best practices and the future of research software. Collaborations Workshop 2023 (CW23) will take place as a hybrid event from Tuesday 2 May - Thursday 4 May 2023.
The theme of CW23 is Sustainable Career Development for those in the research software community: looking after your software, your career, and yourself. The theme encompasses
Technical development: including software sustainability, how to decide what to learn next and where to go for intermediate software development skills.
Career development: including career pathways related to research software, how to get credit for your work, mentorship, and inclusive leadership to support team work.
Personal development: including sustaining your mental health, wellbeing and finding community.
More information including the location of the in-person element and registration will be announced soon.
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 CW23.
CW23 participants will gain insight into topics around Sustainable Career Development and how these impact on research software. It is also an ideal opportunity to form collaborations (on average, CW participants start two new collaborations by attending) and to discuss topics proposed by attendees. CW23 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.
