Workshops

The British Library, Software Sustainability Institute and Alan Turing Institute are co-organising a workshop on Software Citation on the 13th and 14th May 2019 at the British Library, to raise the profile of the topic, provide information and address current challenges.
The Jupyter Community Workshop on Dashboarding with Jupyter will take place from the 3rd to the 6th June at the Interdisciplinary Research Center in Paris (8, 8bis Rue Charles V, 75004). The workshop will last four days, with hands-on discussions, hacking sessions, and technical presentations. The goal of the event is to foster collaboration and the sharing of knowledge between downstream library authors and contributors, and favour upstream contributions.

On the 8th and 9th of January 2019, three Fellows of the Software Sustainability Institute (Vincent Knight (2016), Nikoleta Glynatsi (2017), and Geraint Palmer (2018)) delivered an annual Research Software Development Workshop for PhD students are the School of Mathematics, Cardiff University.
By Becky Arnold, University of Sheffield. On the 7th of November, Raniere Silva of the Software Sustainability Institute gave a one day workshop on bash scripting at the University of Sheffield. The Unix shell has tremendous power. This workshop was geared towards researchers that had some experience of working on Unix-like systems, but wanted to build on that to better exploit its full potential. Will Furnass of the University of Sheffield Research Software Engineering group also helped out at this event.

The Oxford e-Research Centre is organising the Digital Practices in the Humanities Workshop (DPHW) on 21st June 2018 from 10am–5pm. The workshop will look into digital toolmaking and its use in the humanities. 

The event is free though registration is required. 

For further information, please visit Digital Practices in the Humanities Wokshop (DPHW).

The Alan Turing Institute is delighted to invite you to two separate but related one day workshops that explore new forms of social exclusion in a digital society and the scope to monitor and mitigate these with digital resources.
