Event description

Description

The DANS / the Software Sustainability Institute / Netherlands eScience Center Workshop on Sustainable Software Sustainability 2019 (WOSSS19) follows on from the successful WOSSS17 workshop in The Hague.

Sustainable Software Sustainability (3S) focuses on long term supported solutions for Software Sustainability. It addresses two forms of sustainability:

  1. How to cope with the existing legacy software and
  2. How to prevent new legacy to be created today.

Sustainability addressing the legacy is about sharing insights and methodologies to revive old software and keep it maintainable for the future.

Sustainability addressing methods for writing software properly focuses on principles that lead to software maintainable for the future at minimal cost.

Many meetings, discussions and technical developments have taken place since WOSSS17. At WOSSS19 we bring together those active in the fields of legacy software preservation and support with those who are focused on current and future software best practices.

We will explore the following 3S topics related to research software:

  • FAIR principles for Software
  • Software Legacy/Heritage
  • Software Development: current and future best practice
  • Software deposition routes
  • Software Directories
  • Resource acquisition & planning
  • Software handover and succession

WOSSS19 will be an interactive workshop focusing on an introduction to topics by leaders in the field followed by discussions amongst leaders and practitioners in 3S topics. The aim is to produce a report on the current state of 3S topics (please see the WOSSS17 report for reference).

WOSSS19 will include representations from key organisations and long term projects, to establish the state of the art in Sustainable Software Sustainability, document this and help broadcast finding to relevant communities of practice.

WOSSS19 brings together software creation, user, evaluation and deposition groups from different disciplines, industry representatives and cultural heritage organisations.
