RSE Worldwide: Sharing across borders

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This high profile plenary session is intended for all conference attendees.

Typically, geographic boundaries, both national and regional, can present barriers to communication and hinder the transfer of knowledge. However, RSE cuts across community and discipline borders, and covers many aspects of the research lifecycle. And so, it is very important to stimulate such knowledge transfer across these boundaries and borders.

Therefore, in this plenary session, we aim to promote the sharing of best practice in research software engineering across the various borders. In addition, we wish to prompt a discussion within selected domains about current issues and potential solutions, both during this session and hopefully afterwards on our communication channels, such as the RSE Slack workspace.

The following is an indicative agenda:

4.50pm – Welcome by RSE Worldwide chairs
4.55pm – A word from our session sponsor - Bradley Tipp (Microsoft) - Being where you are...

Keynote Talk:
5.00pm – Neil Chue Hong (ReSA) - "Making software a first-class research citizen"

Lightning Talks:
5.25pm – Daniel S. Katz (US-RSE) - "US-RSE: Growing a community"
5.30pm – Stephan Druskat (DE-RSE) - "Building the Research Software Engineering community in Germany"
5.35pm – Niels Drost (NL-RSE) - "NL-RSE: Past, Present and Future"
5.40pm – Sarah Gibson (Binder) - "Collaborating Across Borders"
5.45pm – James DesLauriers (University of Westminster, UK) - "Crossing Borders with Modularity and Microservices"

Panel discussion:
5.50pm – Panel Q&A including invited speaker and all lightning talk speakers
6.15pm – End
