Conceptualizing a US Research Software Sustainability Institute

Wednesday, November 13, 2019, at 1 pm Eastern/10 am Pacific

Presented by Daniel S. Katz, Assistant Director for Scientific Software & Applications, NCSA; Research Associate Professor, CS & ECE & iSchool, University of Illinois

This webinar will talk about the need for a US Research Software Sustainability Institute, and the work we have been doing to bring together the community to demonstrate the need for such an institute, and to plan for what an institute ideally would do. We've held a number of workshops, run a survey, ethnographically studied a set of projects, and are planning a trial winter school. Based on these inputs, we're in the process of drafting an institute plan to deliver services to the community, including to gateway developers, and this webinar will discuss this draft plan.
