Research Software Camp “Beyond the spreadsheet”: call for ideas

Posted by j.laird on 12 July 2021 - 10:00am

Research Software Camps logoThe Software Sustainability Institute is delighted to announce that the autumn Research Software Camp: Beyond the Spreadsheet will focus on the uses of spreadsheets in research and first steps into further use of software in research.

The Camp will run for two weeks from 1 to 12 November 2021. Our events and resources will collate different perspectives, experiences, and best practice of the use of spreadsheets, as well as signpost to existing resources. 

Call for ideas

Do you use spreadsheets to conduct your research? Do you prefer a specific tool or approach when using spreadsheets? What events would you run to help other researchers using spreadsheets? Are you interested in sharing your experience or stories of research data management and analysis with spreadsheets? We’d like to hear from you! 

We have a few ideas for running our live sessions and commissioning content for the Camp, but we’re asking our community about what would be useful to hear/read about and learn from around the use of spreadsheets in research, what works, and taking the first steps into other computation techniques. 

Submit your ideas before the end of July. 

About the Research Software Camp

Research Software Camps are a series of free online events (taking place at different times throughout the two weeks) and will collate a variety of online resources, ranging from social media campaigns and discussion forums to blog posts and guides all discussing different aspects of the chosen topic. 

All sessions and resources can be accessed freely and they’re aimed at anyone who’s working in research and research software. 

If you’re interested in joining us, sign up to receive further updates.

The Software Sustainability Institute runs free online Research Software Camps twice a year over the course of two weeks. Each Camp focuses on introducing and exploring a topic around research software, thus starting discussions among various research communities. The first Research Software Camp on research accessibility took place in February - March 2021.
