Wir melden uns aus der (arg verlängerten) Sommerpause mit einer “Classic” Episode zurück, die vor allem auch viel Potential für “Puls” mit sich bringt. Grund dafür ist neben unserer klassischen Nemesis El****** vor allem ein fehlgeleiteter Institutsleiter und ein ignoranter Schweizer Verlag. Zum Glück gibt’s auch erfreuliche Dinge zu berichten.
In the first week of June, the first Conference for Research Software Engineering in Germany (deRSE2019) took place in Potsdam, organized by the German Gesellschaft für Informatik (Fachbereich Softwaretechnik) and the German Association for Research Software Engineers (de-RSE). The conference was addressing research software and the people behind it within the German research landscape and aimed to get those diverse group of people together. Over the 3 days there was a multitude of talks – for a number of them recordings will be published by de-RSE.
Since Konrad was participating, he was so kind to collect some voices from the conference floor(s) and a record a short wrap-up with the two conference chairs Carina Haupt and Stephan Janosch.
This is another episode from our coverage of the Barcamp Open Science 2019. In this episode Bernd talks with Matthias Schmidt. Matthias has hosted a session on how to find research software for open science. Follow this link for the session pad.
In a joint effort of a group of research software enthusiasts, the association de-RSE e.V. – Gesellschaft für Forschungssoftware was founded in late November 2018. It seeks to provide a new home to the German community of Research Software Engineers and a first major effort is the organization of the deRSE19 – Conference for Research Software Engineers in Germany. We had the pleasure to talk to Carina Haupt and Stephan Druskat about the research software engineer’s profile, the de-RSE association as well as the deRSE19 conference.
Software is increasingly been recognized as valuable research output but there’s still a perceived lack of consistent processes for software citation. Sophia Dörner hosted a session on exactly this question to collect some community feedback. Here are her impressions and learnings from the session.
We met Alexander Struck who moderated a session at #oscibar about research software publishing in repositories, possible underlying use cases and required features of a registry for research software repositories. Here’s what his impressions were.
