At this workshop, we will bring together research data managers, digital repository vendors, publishers, policymakers and researchers. We will present guidance on software deposit and preservation, discuss software deposit and preservation from the perspectives of the foregoing stakeholders, and identify ways in which to drive forward the adoption of best practices in software deposit and preservation.

This was part of an activity, funded by Jisc, to provide software deposit and preservation guidance, in particular to develop use cases and workflows for software deposit via Jisc's Research Data Shared Service (RDSS). A draft report on the workshop is now available.
