The second International Research Software Engineering (RSE) Leaders Workshop will take place online on 15, 16 and 30 September. The workshop brings together established and aspiring leaders from the international RSE community for networking, knowledge exchange, and hands-on collaboration.

In 2018, the first International RSE Leaders Workshop, organized by the UK RSE Association, took place at the Alan Turing Institute in London, UK. Among other successes, it saw the foundation of the Nordic RSE community and helped improve access to software expertise in research.

This year, representatives from existing RSE associations - UK RSE, de-RSE, US-RSE, Nordic-RSE, NL-RSE, and the newly founded Belgian RSE initiative - are organising the second workshop.

This is the perfect opportunity to meet with key representatives from established RSE communities from around the world. The meeting will provide aspiring leaders with the knowledge and contacts needed to establish research software engineering communities in their own countries, and will advance our shared goal of software becoming a first-class research output.

Places at the workshop are strictly limited. Applications are welcome from people with a vision to start or advance a Research Software Engineering community in their own region or country, or within a specific domain or discipline. Enthusiasm is more important than seniority.
