SORSE offers an opportunity to RSEs to develop their skills, build new collaborations and engage with RSEs worldwide.


You are invited to join us at the launch event of SORSE (a Series of Online Research Software Events) on Wednesday 2nd September 2020, 13:00 UTC.  

Registration can be found here. With the cancellation of many research software events in 2020, the SORSE team have been working hard over the last couple of months to put together a series of online events to help you learn new skills, keep up to date with what is happening in the world of research software engineering and connect with the international research software community. Over the coming weeks and months, we’ll be hosting regular talks, software demos, panels and more but there is still time to get involved.

SORSE has an open call for submissions of various session types including talks, poster sessions, software demos and mini-workshops with monthly deadlines for review cycles. Our next submission deadline is 23:59 UTC on 31st August 2020.

To kick our series off, we are pleased to be welcoming two keynote speakers at this event:

  • Dr Mariann Hardey, Associate Professor, Durham University
    Talk: ‘Switching off the label “women in tech”’
  • Dr Kari Jordan, Executive Director, The Carpentries
    Talk: ’Building Inclusive Computational Communities

The session will start with a short welcome and introduction to SORSE followed by two 30 minute keynote talks. Further details and abstracts will be made available on the SORSE website soon.

The talks will be followed by time for questions and then an opportunity for further discussion and networking in breakout rooms.

Joining instructions: The event will take place as a Zoom Webinar and will switch to a regular Zoom session for discussion and networking in breakout groups. Connection details will be sent to all registered participants in advance of the event.

Mailing list:  If you’d like to be notified of upcoming SORSE events, you can join the list here. Please note: the mailing list will be used for event updates and notifications only.

We hope that many of you will be able to join us for what we’re sure will be two interesting and insightful talks on 2nd September.

Best wishes,
All of the SORSE Team
