International Series of Online Research Software Events: Call for Contributions now open

Missing a lot of conferences on research software engineering this year? You've come to the right SORSE, be part of it – and participate or contribute to our series of weekly events.

SORSE – A Series of Online Research Software Events

Yesterday, SORSE (Series of Online Research Software Events, pronounced source) was launched. SORSE is our international answer to the COVID-19-induced cancellation of many national Research Software Engineering (RSE) conferences. Get involved in this new initiative created by a truly international committee of members from RSE communities from Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, United Kingdom, Nordic countries, United States as well as Australia and New Zealand!

To keep us all connected, collaborating and learning until the 2021 RSE Conferences, a wonderful group of volunteers has created this new series that aims to deliver a weekly event, either a talk, a workshop, a panel, a poster session, a software demo etc from the community. This is an open call to all RSEs and anyone involved with research software, worldwide, to submit an abstract. The contribution can be delivered in various languages – including German, so do not hesitate to take part!

The call will be open continuously with rolling deadlines. The first deadline is soon (12th July) and then again on the 31st July, followed by the end of each month after that. Apply at any time to be included in the next review.

Have an idea and want to collaborate on it? - Go to the Topic Bazaar – The topic bazaar is a place to encourage and create collaborations that can then be presented in a variety of formats within the conference. You can also search for existing ideas to establish new collaborations.

Want to have a say on the conference content? Go to the Wishlist – and tell us what events and guest speakers you'd like to see.
