The 5th Workshop on Sustainable Software for Science: Practice and Experiences (WSSSPE5.2) will take place as a 1-day workshop during IEEE eScience, October 24-27, 2017, in Auckland, New Zealand.
WSSSPE is an international community-driven organization that promotes sustainable research software by addressing challenges related to the full lifecycle of research software through shared learning and community action. WSSSPE5.2 is the seventh workshop convened since 2015 in an international series that provides opportunities for the community to come together to share and advance practices.
The workshop will discuss topics relevant to building a sustainable future for open-use research software and the activities that are needed to get there. This includes discussion of practices and experiences in sustainable scientific software, with the goal of improving the quality of today’s research software and the experiences of its developers by sharing practices and experiences. The workshop agenda is available here.
Deadline for submission of abstracts: June 30, 2017
Submission types and formats:
Both types of talks may be based on novel or previously published work, present a position on what we can do to improve sustainable scientific software in the short term, or discuss experiences in sustainable scientific software, specifically discussing current practices and experiences and how they have been used to improve the quality of today’s research software and/or the experiences of its developers.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
Authors are invited to submit using the IEEE 8.5 × 11 manuscript guidelines: double-column text using single-spaced 10 point font on 8.5 × 11 inch pages. Templates are available from http://www.ieee.org/conference
The proceedings of WSSSPE5.2 will be included in the eScience 2017 proceedings to be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press, USA, and made available online through the IEEE Digital Library. For each paper selected for publication, at least one of the authors must hold a registration for the workshop and must present the paper in person.
