Save the date: Third annual NZ Research Software Engineering Conference happening online 12-13 September 2022

Now in its third year, NeSI's annual New Zealand Research Software Engineering (NZ RSE) Conference continues to support and grow the community of those who write code and develop applications that enable research. This community comprises researchers, software engineers, computational scientists and anyone who writes code, applies software solutions to research problems, and/or develops applications that enable research.

We're pleased to announce the dates for our 2022 event!

Save the date

This year the event will be held from 12-13 September 2022 in a largely online format with social meetup opportunities in a few key locations around New Zealand. If you would like to host one of these meetups or have ideas for what these could look like, please get in touch!

Our theme will be centered around sustainability of research outputs. More details about the theme and submission guidelines will be provided in the following weeks, and we encourage you to start thinking about the kinds of projects, topics, and demos you could contribute to our event!
