The Collaborations Workshop 2017 (CW17) brings together researchers, developers, managers, funders, publishers and trainers to explore best practices and the future of research software.
The theme of CW17 is 'The Internet of Things (IoT) and Open Data: implications for research'. You will gain insight and views on:
IoT as a source of data for research
IoT use-cases in research
How could IoT be relevant to and have an impact on your research?
Benefits of Open Data
Overlaps between IoT and Open Data
Human factors in successful research using IoT and Open Data
The workshop will be a great place to meet many of the new Software Sustainability Institutes' 2017 Fellows.
CW17 will follow the unconference philosophy—where attendees get to to choose which proposed discussions get to be happen, what problems they solve in the collaborative ideas sessions and which team they want to join for the Hackday. In addition there will be lightning talks, keynote addresses, speed blogging, mini-workshops on selected topics and a social programme to support networking. The CW format offers a novel way to support its themes which attendees find both useful and enjoyable.
The CW Hackday starts on the evening of 28th March 2017, which allows participants to realise the ideas coming from the Collaborations Workshop. Successful hack projects need not all be code—they can include any combination of software, specifications, guidance and other materials - enabling people from all backgrounds to participate.
The Hackday will focus on topics related to the theme of the workshop. There will be prizes for the best team efforts. Remember good hacks are cool, better ones are potentially impactful.
