Mini-workshops & demos are a unique opportunity that Collaborations Workshop attendees have to share a particular software product, approach, standard, etc. The deadline for proposals is 28th February at 23:59.

This year, we already have four mini-workshops & demos for Collaborations Workshop 2018: "Making research software easily citable with the Citation File Format" with Stephan Druskat, "Code is Science—open source scientific code manifesto" with Yo Yehudi, "Python testing with pytest" with Matt Williams, and a session related to Overleaf, one of our Platinum Sponsors, with John Lees-Miller and Villy Ioannou. More information about these sessions is available at the mini-workshops & demos page.

There is still time to join this incredible group of facilitators and share something from your researcher utility belt or discuss approaches to boost culture change or productivity. For those that need a bit of inspiration, proposals on the lines of "Using GitLab to project manage home renovation priorities" or "100% Emacs: How To Do Everything In Emacs" will be considered.
