My Fellowship is structured around the Festival of Maintenance, a celebration of those who maintain different parts of our world and how they do it. It recognises the often hidden work done in repair, custodianship, stewardship, tending and caring for the things that matter.
The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) are calling for poster submissions to the Conference on Computational Science and Engineering (CSE21).
Throughout May and June we held a series of writing sprints and invited members of our community of practice to author “recipes” for virtual event formats. The result was a guidebook of 12 event formats, which was downloaded almost 4,000 times in the first two weeks after publication.
Authorities worldwide are using increasingly localised public health measures to try to mitigate the Covid-19 pandemic. Many of these decisions are guided by the outcomes of observations and models that operate on a national level. At Brunel and within the HiDALGO project, we developed the Flu And Coronavirus Simulator (FACS) to understand the viral spread in local areas.
Applications are now open for the 2021 Better Scientific Software (BSSw) Fellowship Program for researchers with US institutional affiliations.
The Festival of Maintenance and the Maintainers recently ran our first joint online event, about the gig economy, a precarious form of maintenance.
On July 8th, the Riot Science Club, the Crick Institute and ReproducibiliTea hosted a panel discussion on “The cost of correcting bad science”. Institute Fellow Patricia Herterich was invited to speak about the HiddenREF, an initiative to shine a light on and celebrate all kinds of research outputs.
“What do you wish you had known when you started?” This was a question asked during the 2020 Software Sustainability Institute Collaborations Workshop session that caused a (Zoom) room of research software engineers to pause and scratch their heads.
