RSE Conference

By Stephan Druskat, Jurriaan H. Spaaks, Netherlands eScience Center, and Alexander Struck. In order to enable attribution and credit for Research Software Engineers, and other developers of and contributors to research software, software must be made citable, and must be cited. One of the obstacles for correct and comprehensive software citation is the lack, or suboptimal discoverability, of relevant metadata. While, for instance, papers provide their metadata quite obviously (i.e., title, authors, containing publication, publication date, etc.), software hardly ever does.
By Alejandra Gonzalez-Beltran, Software Sustainability Institute Fellow. This year I attended for the first time the third edition of the RSE conference thanks to the support of the Software Sustainability Institute Fellowship. The conference brings together Research Software Engineers (or RSEs) from across the UK and the world.
By Tim Powell, Research Software Engineer at the STFC Hartree Centre. This post was first published at the STFC Hartree Centre blog. On 3rd September the peaceful campus of Birmingham University came alive with bubbling groups of research software engineers, talking in excited tones about their latest optimisation tool and favourite python library, as the third annual conference of Research Software Engineers was started!

Following the success of the Second Conference of Research Software Engineers, the RSE conference 2018 will take place at the Bramall Building at the University of Birmingham, on 3rd-4th September 2018. RSE18 is the perfect opportunity to promote your products and services to research software engineering leaders and decision makers (present and future) at the only conference purpose built for RSEs.
