Venue and Accessibility

CW22 will take place online using Zoom. You will need to install their client, and make sure that it is updated to the latest version. 

Live transcription and captioning will be provided using

A CW22 Slack workspace is available for participants to connect, engage in discussion, ask questions, and forge new collaborations. These conversations can persist long after the Zoom room has closed. The invitation link will be emailed to participants via the email they registered with. 

We will be using Google Documents for collaborative note-taking and keeping everyone synchronised during CW22. The links to these documents will be shared with participants on the day. 

We recommend joining with a good quality headset with microphone, plenty of screen space (either using a large monitor or second screen), a normally reliable WiFi signal or wired connection, and a quiet room where you are less likely to be disturbed (but we understand this might be difficult given the current circumstances).

More about Collaborations Workshop 2022

The Software Sustainability Institute invites all members of the research software community to explore and discuss the themes described above and other related issues at CW22.

CW22 participants will gain insight into the topics of Code Review, Ethics, Hybrid Working, and Software Sustainability and how these impact on research. It is also an ideal opportunity to form collaborations (on average, CW participants start two new collaborations by attending) and to discuss topics proposed by attendees. CW22 is a great place to network and participants will meet many of the new and existing Software Sustainability Institute Fellows – key ambassadors in varied research domains.

Take a look at the Highlights from Collaborations Workshop 2021 and the videos on better and sustainable research software to better understand what happens at a Collaborations Workshop. Also please read the various blog posts listed above from previous Collaborations Workshops to better understand why you should attend and what you will gain.
