Monday 17th July 2023, 9.30am – 5pm, South Kensington Campus, Imperial College London

RSLondonSouthEast 2023, the fourth workshop of the RSLondon research software community for London and South East of England will take place on Monday 17th July 2023.

The workshop will again take place, in person, at Imperial College London’s South Kensington Campus and will bring together Research Software Engineers (RSEs), researchers, academics and individuals in a variety of related roles who work with or are interested in research software. With so many in person events now taking place again, many members of our community will have been attending conferences, events and meetings over recent months and this workshop provides a great opportunity to tell members of the London and South East regional community about the work that we’ve all been doing.

Regional communities like RSLondon provide a great opportunity to meet and present work to peers at nearby institutions and organisations without a significant commitment in terms of travel costs and time that national or international conferences and events often present. To make the most of this and to provide the chance to meet and network with colleagues, collaborators and friends from across the region, this will be an in-person only event.

While this workshop aims to provide a regional focus on research software activities and offer an opportunity to present work to a regional audience, it also aims to help participants develop links with the wider RSE community. As such, the workshop is also open to participants from elsewhere in the UK and beyond. Whether you’re already an experienced RSE or researcher developing software or whether you’re new to the area and are keen to develop your skills and meet others working in the field, the workshop will provide a great opportunity to engage with the community and develop your research software skills.

There will be a range of technical presentations as well as a poster session and opportunities for networking and discussion.

See the call for submission of abstracts for presentations and posters.
