Research Software Engineers Community Workshop


Join us at PEARC20 for a workshop focused on Research Software Engineers.

The Research Software Engineers Community Workshop will be July 31st, starting at 8 am PDT (Portland, OR time). It is open to all PEARC20 registrants.

The full PEARC20 conference runs July 26-31 and is virtual this year. Information about the conference is available on the PEARC20 conference website. PEARC20 Registration will be required for all workshop participants (register by July 24, 2020).

The workshop will provide an opportunity for research software engineers to connect and share their work. There will be presentations from RSEs about their software, research, projects, and groups, and about the development of the RSE community. There will also be discussion of challenges facing RSEs and what the community can do to help meet those challenges.

To participate in the workshop, register for PEARC20 and then join our workshop session on Friday, July 31st.


Each block of talks will be followed by time for discussion and questions.

All times Pacific Daylight Time.
