Workshop on Debugging Numerical Software

The Workshop on Debugging Numerical Software will take place at the University of Bath (UK) on 4th & 5th June 2018. The goal of the workshop is to bring together research software engineers from industry and academia to talk about this important but often neglected topic. A lot of time “writing” code is actually spent hunting for (sometimes very elusive) bugs, yet there seems to be limited general advise or consensus on how to make this often arduous task easier.

Instead of concentrating on the technicalities, specific debuggers or particular programs, the workshop aims to explore common themes, discuss general strategies and share experiences. Although the focus will be on numerical software, developers from other disciplines are very welcome.

To express your interest in the workshop, please fill out this google form by Tuesday 1st May 2018.

Please note that the number of spaces is limited and filling out the form will NOT confirm your place yet. We will get in touch with you as soon as possible to confirm your attendance.

Do not make any travel or accommodation arrangement before you receive an email from the organisers confirming your attendance.

The workshop is organised by James Grant as local RSE in Bath and Eike Mueller as a new Fellow of the Software Sustainability Institute. It has been made possible through generous financial support from the Software Sustainability Institute and the Institute of Mathematical Innovation in Bath.


Further details and a preliminary schedule can be found on the workshop webpage.
