Research Software Camps logoThe Software Sustainability Institute's inaugural Research Software Camp is underway, starting with a keynote talk on the Social Model of Inaccessibility.

Our Camp, running from 22 February to 5 March, is focussed on different aspects of research accessibility. The keynote talk is delivered by Chris Hartgerink (Liberate Science), looking at the social model of disability and how it can be used to reframe questions and discussions around research accessibility.

You can watch the talk below and register for a live Q&A with Chris on Wednesday 24 February at 15:30 – 16:00 GMT. 

You can submit questions for Chris Hartgerink to answer at the live Q&A in advance on Slido. We'd also like to know what some of the barriers are that you've experienced when trying to make (any aspect of) your research accessible. Share your thoughts and we'll try to address these in the Q&A or later during the Camp.

Follow and join in our conversations on research accessibility on Twitter and LinkedIn using #RSCamps.
