Professor Carole Goble was presented with an honorary doctorate last weekend at Maastricht University as part of the University’s 42nd birthday celebration.

The Software Sustainability Institute has been collaborating on an NSF proposal with a US consortium (led by Dr Karthik Ram from the University of California, Berkeley, and Daniel S. Katz, Jeffrey Carver, Sandra Gesing and Nicholas Weber as co-PIs) to prototype an organisation similar to the Software Sustainability Institute in the United States.

Regular Institute collaborator Dr. Jeffrey Carver of the University of Alabama is conducting a couple of studies relating to the way that people develop research software. These will help provide the community with a better understanding of how different practices, including code review and software metrics are being used in the development of research software.

If you'd like to provide input into these studies, please participate in the following web surveys (each of which will take…

Next week, we will be hearing from the successful applicants to last year’s RSE Fellowship, funded by the EPSRC. The Fellows are exceptional individuals in the software field who demonstrate leadership and have combined expertise in programming and a solid knowledge of the research environment.

Today’s supercomputers are the most powerful calculating machines ever invented, capable of performing more than a thousand million calculations every second. This gives scientists and engineers a powerful new tool to study the natural world—computer simulation.

The Software Sustainability Institute are pleased to announce figshare as Platinum Sponsor of the Collaborations Workshop 2018 (CW18).

Everyone at the Software Sustainability Institute wishes our friends and colleagues all the best for the holiday season.

We are very excited to announce that Kirstie Whitaker will be giving one of the keynote speeches for our Collaborations Workshop 2018 (CW18).

The Project

The Software Sustainability Institute and zaf-RSE invite anyone coding in and for academia in South Africa to complete this survey on research software. 

As of now there is not much knowledge about the community of those in research and science who develop software. This survey aims to gain valuable insights into this community in order to support research funders and other institutions to develop strategies and funding programs as well as policies.
