SSI Fellow Dave Horsfall is running a short survey that aims to capture a snapshot of mental health within the research software engineering community, and explore the steps that might be taken to improve things.
While citizen science in a way predates our connected software age it has gained substantial popularity in recent years as software-facilitated citizen science projects can now easily rely on volunteers from all around the world thanks to the internet.
We welcome applications from individuals from a wide variety of backgrounds, experience and career stages who want to improve how research software is done in their domains and/or area of work.
Celebrating the achievements of individuals and organisations who have made significant and innovative contributions to creating a sustainable future for our digital assets.
By SSI Fellow Emma Karoune. The Computational Application and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology (CAA) International Conference is an annual event that brings together archaeologists, mathematicians and computer scientists. There are presentations, posters and workshops on a wide range of topics such as data acquisition and recording, conceptual modelling, data analysis, data management, digital 3D reconstruction, geophysics and GIS - all with an archaeology focus. 
Gemma Turon reflects on her journey to becoming an SSI Fellow. "When I completed my PhD in Biomedical Sciences a few years ago, I didn't even know that such a thing like a Research Software Engineer (RSE) existed. So, how did I end up being a Software Sustainability Fellow only three years after?"
Dr. Domhnall Carlin discusses research within his EPSRC RSE Fellowship, aiming to gauge the existence of and to develop software publication policies in academia.
