Neil Chue-Hong: Is my research right? Surviving in a post-expert world

Stephen Eglen: Towards standard practice for managing and sharing code

 

Jisc, in collaboration with SSI, University of Cambridge, University of Sheffield, University of Bath, University of Leicester, University of Birmingham, the British Library and STFC are inviting all researchers interested and passionate about developing or using research software to join a workshop on this subject.

 

We aim to:

  • Bring a range of experts who can answer and guide you with your most critical issues
  • Provide you with a list of available resources on the subject and tailored to the problems that you are encountering when managing research code
  • Listen and collate the most common problems that you are having in this area

An initial list of resources that may be of interest is available on the research data network siteAt the workshop, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Share your experience and best practice around managing and sharing software for research
  • Discuss and explain the blockers and issues you are having with the current best practice and why it is not working in your research group
  • Work with others on developing new solutions for problems that might not have been tackled yet in this area
