16341039835_70b510396f_z.jpgOn the 11th of July, The Software Sustainability Institute and Jisc will be running a Software Deposit and Preservation Workshop in Oxford. At this workshop, research data managers, digital repository vendors, publishers, policymakers and researchers will present their perspectives on software deposit and preservation. Speakers include Naomi Penfold (eLife), Roberto Di Cosmo (Software Heritage), Federica Fina (University of St. Andrews) and Antonis Lempesis (Athena Research and Innovation Centre/OpenAIRE).

The Software Sustainability Institute will present new guidance on software deposit and preservation. Then, together, attendees will discuss software deposit and preservation and identify ways in which to drive forward the adoption of best practices in software deposit and preservation. For more information, please see the agenda.

If you'd like to attend this workshop, please register via Eventbrite.

This workshop is a follow-up to the Software Deposit and Preservation Policy and Planning Workshop ran back in March, for which a workshop report is now available.

Both workshops are part of an activity, funded by Jisc, to develop software deposit and preservation guidance for Jisc’s Research Data Shared Service (RDSS).
