Welcome to the First Online Get-Together of the Nordic RSE Initiative!
30 November - 2 December 2020
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 Nordic countries, plan meetings and workshops where knowledge can be shared, organize a biannual conference, and provide assistance in starting local RSE groups or hiring RSE staff in Nordic universities.
You are invited to attend the first online get-together of the Nordic Research Software Engineer initiative: nordic-rse.org/events/2020-online-get-together .
This online event will start with two invited talks on the 30th of November to set the stage, and will be followed by free-form conversations, short talks, workshops, or other types of contributions on the 1st and 2nd of December. 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? If so, please consider submitting a lightweight abstract! If you are unsure whether your idea is within the scope, you can get in touch ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) to discuss it or browse the programme of the last UK-RSE conference in 2019 ( rseconuk2019.sched.com ) to see the list of RSE topics discussed there. You can, of course, also register without presenting! More details can be found on the event page: 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 practices!
