RSLondonSouthEast 2022

Monday 4th July 2022, 9.30am – 5pm, South Kensington Campus, Imperial College London

After a break of more than two years, we are delighted to announce that the RSLondonSouthEast workshop is back! RSLondonSouthEast 2022, the third workshop of the RSLondon research software community for London and South East of England will take place on Monday 4th July 2022.

The workshop will 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. This event presents an excellent opportunity to meet and network with other members of the community from across the London and South East region after an extended period without the opportunity to attend in-person conferences/workshops and meetings.

One of the few positives of the very challenging pandemic period has been the rapid adoption of, and advances in, online meeting tools. These tools have made physical location less of an issue for participating in a wide range of events and activities. This shift to online events has, to some extent, reduced the value of regional groups. However, as in-person events return, many of us are rediscovering the benefits of being able to meet and network with our community colleagues in person. Regional communities like RSLondon provide the 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.

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 and a poster session as well as extensive opportunities for networking and discussion and a set of parallel, breakout discussion sessions.
