The Science Coding Conference 2017 is going to take place in Wellington on 1st-2nd August!
For 2017, we have changed the name from CRI Coding Conference to Science Coding Conference (SciCo!) to reflect the broadening audience of this event.
This event is for anyone involved in the programming side of NZ research. We encourage all research software engineers, IT managers, researchers and operational software developers from NZ Crown Research Institutes, universities and other public sector organisations to attend the conference. The Science Coding Conference is a bridge between different communities and stakeholders working within the same ecosystem.
The call for submissions is now open and we welcome presentations on a variety of topics, including:
• software tools and solutions for research;
• best practices for research software engineering;
• building sustainable and performant code for production systems;
• data management and analytics solutions;
• visualisation and delivery systems;
• workflow solutions for research;
• community and training approaches and programmes;
• career development, rewards and recognition;
• organisational learnings.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Wellington for SciCo 2017!
NeSI, in conjunction with Science NZ, recently hosted a two-day event bringing together software developers from Crown Research Institutes (CRIs) around the country – the 2016 CRI Coding Conference. The conference was held at NIWA headquarters in downtown Auckland on August 2nd and 3rd and had representatives from six of the eight CRIs in attendance. Access to digital tools is revolutionising research globally and this is true for researchers within New Zealand’s CRIs. This digital revolution in research exploits the developments of new hardware technologies (and the commonly referred to “Moore’s Law”), yet taking advantage of these changes in hardware…
