Welcome to the first online get-together event of the Nordic Research Software Engineer initiative on Nov 30 to Dec 2!
Are you employed to develop software for research? Or are you simply spending more time developing software than conducting research? Then you have much in common with a growing international network of research software engineers, RSEs. The Nordic-RSE initiative aims to build a community of RSEs in the Nordics, plan meetings and workshops where knowledge can be shared, organize a conference biannually, and provide assistance in starting local RSE groups or hiring RSE staff in Nordic universities.
This online event will start with two invited talks on November 30 to set the stage, and will be followed by free-form conversations, short talks, workshops, or other types of contributions on December 1-2. Do you have an idea for a technical talk or short workshop that might not fit into a conference in your academic domain but might appeal to other technical people? Please consider submitting a lightweight abstract! If you’re unsure whether your idea fits the scope, you can get in touch to discuss it or browse the programme of the last UK-RSE conference in 2019 to see the list of RSE topics discussed there. You can of course also register without presenting!
More details, a registration form and information abstract submission can be found on the event page: https://nordic-rse.org/events/2020-online-get-together/
Join us for the first Nordic-RSE get-together to develop your skills, meet like-minded people, learn about new job opportunities or find people to hire, and join an advocacy network for better research!
