SORSE - Call for Contributions

1 minute read

Were you going to submit something to an RSE conference this year? Do you have a project you’d like to share? Is there a talk/workshop/panel you’d like to see happen? Then you’ve found the right place!

Submit an abstract

You can make a contribution to one of the event types (see the left hand menu), and/or suggest an event in the Wishlist that you’d like to see in the series. Take a look at the Topic Bazaar if you have an idea but want to find collaborators before submitting. We’re looking for both technical and soft skills and there are no set themes this year but if a theme emerges, we may group those events together to create a half day event or a run of events over a few weeks.

We encourage contributions from all time zones and will schedule events on a day and at a time that suits the presenter. Events will be recorded so that they can be run multiple times to suit different time zones and encourage those communities to come together to network.

The Call for Contributions form will remain open continuously and there will be a rolling deadline at the end of the last day (UTC) of each month, following which all contributions received over the previous month will be sent for review by the Programme Committee.

To kick start the series, the next few deadlines will be shorter to stimulate contributions. Following the end of July, contribution deadlines will be the end of the last day of each month.

  • First deadline date for contributions is 12th July at midnight UTC.
  • The Programme Team will get in touch with the contributors from this first round by the 17th July.
  • Second deadline date for contributions is 31st July at midnight UTC.

The call is open to anyone wanting to propose a research software-related talk or event from anywhere in the world, regardless of your role.

Upcoming contribution deadlines are all detailed below. Each contribution deadline will have an earliest event date when events submitted prior to that deadline can take place. You can propose an event for any date or range of dates beyond this.

See our schedule of events for details of what’s coming up.
