The Software Sustainability Institute


Welcome to this month's SSI Fellows Newsletter which shares activities and opportunities taking place within the SSI Fellows' community.

Yo Yehudi, Kaitlin Stack Whitney and Malvika Sharan describe how to structure online group calls for successful, multimodal collaboration among people who communicate in different ways.
It’s the end of the first week of our inaugural Research Software Camp which is focussed on different aspects of research accessibility. We’ve been exploring the topic through a mixture of live sessions, guides on our website and discussions on social media. Here are some of the highlights from week one.


One of the many opportunities to start a new collaboration during the Collaborations Workshop 2021 (CW21) is through the mini-workshops and demo sessions. This year we’ll have ten 30-minute sessions related to the themes of CW21: FAIR Research Software, Diversity & Inclusion, and Software Sustainability.
RIOT Science Club are hosting a conference on Open Research: A Vision for the Future on 2 March from 12.20 to 17.10 GMT. It's free to attend and open to all.

The Software Sustainability Institute website will be down for scheduled maintenance on Monday 1 March between 07:30 and 09:30 GMT.


Collaborations Workshop 2021 (CW21) takes place from Tuesday, 30 March to Thursday, 1 April 2021 online. The Software Sustainability Institute’s Collaborations Workshop series brings together researchers, developers, innovators, managers, funders, publishers, policy makers, leaders and educators to explore best practices and the future of research software.

"The Institute helped us to define just how we would work together… They taught me how to become a software manager rather than just a developer... I can't speak highly enough of them"
