Event description

Description

After the success of our first few Research Software forums, we are now holding another one. This will be a similar format to the first one:


About the event:

Do you use software in your research?

Do you write bits of code?

Do you supervise people who write code?

If you answered yes to any of these, then this is for you. We are hosting a meeting / forum for researchers from all University faculties who use software as part of their research. With a particular focus on Sustainable Software

- that is ensuring your software is correct and reproducible.

We will start with a short (15-20 min) key note talk given by Dr. Andrew Wharton from physics(title to be confirmed) on why and how you should test your code, and then have a series of lightning talks (3-5 minutes) on just about anything related to using software or computers for research. Please feel free to submit a talk. It could be about:

- a request for help with a programming issue / request for appropriate software / advise.

- a piece of software and how you use it in your research

- a module/library/package you have found helpful

- your git workflow

- some software that you think more people should use

- an introduction to concepts such as testing or debugging

- or even just something that you think might be useful for researchers using software to know.

If it is related to research, software, and computing then please submit something - if you think it could help someone, present it! These are not aimed to be comprehensive talks, but to start conversations (inside or outside the meeting).

We will finish the meeting with a light lunch and an open discussion/conversations on the talks we have heard, or any topics of interest such as:

- How to move forward as a community.
- Training we can provide.
- Further events you would like to see
- How to encourage best practises in software

And anything else - including topics you can nominate on the day.

Lunch will be provided, so sign up and join us!
