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. Collaborations Workshop 2022 (CW22) took place online from Monday 4 April - Thursday 7 April 2022 (4 days).
Note that CW22 will take place over 4 days instead of 3. The first three days will be shorter in length than previous years to accommodate the Keynote presentations, Lightning Talks, Discussion session, Mini-workshop and Demo sessions, and Collaborative Ideas session. The fourth day will be longer to facilitate the Hack Day.
The Software Sustainability Institute is committed to fostering and supporting a diverse, equitable and inclusive research software community. We are proud to offer financial assistance to members of underrepresented groups, students/early career stages, and others who may not be able to attend or fully participate in the event otherwise.
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 Otter.ai.
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.
