We encourage prospective participants to submit talk abstracts (max 300 words) on topics related to Sustainable RSE Ecosystems within eScience.

Possible topics include (but are not limited to):

  • Experiences as an RSE in eScience
  • Struggles between RSEs and domain scientists - how to find the common ground?
  • Different roles in the development of research software
  • How to make the eScience and RSE ecosystem more sustainable?
  • What can the eScience community do to support their RSEs? How can RSEs develop and progress their careers within the eScience community?
  • How to argue for funding to develop and sustain scientific software, and support the RSEs doing the work?
  • Examples of RSEs enabling sustainability within the eScience community

We will ask the authors of accepted abstracts and presentations to self-publish (after revisions, if applicable) to an archival repository (e.g., Zenodo, arXiv). Our website will then provide links to the self-published documents.

Accepted submitters will also be invited to present in-person at the workshop, after which there will be a short panel discussion and then breakout sessions with the larger group of attendees.

We particularly encourage submissions from first-time conference presenters and from members of groups that have historically been underrepresented in the eScience community.
