[softwarecitation][SCID][software-source-code-ig] Hackathon on October 15th FORCE19

05 Sep 2019

Dear all,
We are happy to announce that a full day hackathon about Research Software
has been accepted to the Force2019 [1] conference and it will be held on
Oct. 15th 2019 in Edinburgh [2] .
The main theme will be about “Making software a first-class citizen in the
scholarly world” [3] and we hope bringing together a large group of
stakeholders who are actively working to improve the status of research
software in the scholarly environment.
This is a great opportunity for FORCE11 Software Citation Implementation WG
and the joint FORCE11 & RDA Software Source Code Identification WG, to get
together and discuss, design and implement solutions.
The activities will be organized around 2-4 segments from the following
list, depending on the interests of the participants:
Identifiers for software
Granularity of identification
Correspondence between different identifier schemas
Hacking the software citation graph
Exploring synergies
Metadata interoperability
Metadata mapping (CodeMeta)
Connections with WikiData
Data quality
Guidelines and checklists
Moderation process
Supporting reproducibility
Policies and incentives
Evaluation committees
National research bodies
Learned societies
It would be helpful to know, if you intend on coming.
You are welcome to suggest subjects and activities on specific tracks or as
separate issues here .
Best regards,
