Save the date: Second annual NZ Research Software Engineering Conference happening online 15-17 September 2021

Despite the range of challenges 2020 presented for research community gatherings last year, NeSI's re-branding and hosting of the New Zealand Research Software Engineering (NZ RSE) Conference was a resounding success for strengthening connections between those working on the cusp of technical and research domains. 

This was largely due to an engaged and enthusiastic committee to drive the event in the right direction, the online format to reach a wide audience, and attaching our event to the international RSE movement via the RSE AUNZ community.

We are keeping these keys to success in place for our 2021 NZRSE conference.

NZ RSE Conference dates: 15-17 September 2021

Save the date

This year the event will be held from 15 - 17 September 2021 in a largely online format with social meetup opportunities in a few key locations around NZ. If you would like to host one of these meetups or have ideas for what these could look like, please get in touch!

This year the theme of the conference will be “Workflows for Open Research”. To elaborate, the conference will be focussed on successes, challenges and considerations of creating and using workflows that facilitate reproducible research, collaborations in research, FAIR software in research, etc. We encourage you to start thinking about all the interesting ways this theme applies to your works and consider submitting a talk.
