Research Software Engineering in Data & AI Workshop 2023

The Alan Turing Institute and the University of Warwick are hosting a workshop for Research Software Engineers (RSEs) and other Digital Research Infrastructure professionals (DRIs) who support data science and artificial intelligence research.

This residential workshop will take place 15-17 February at Warwick Conferences. It is open to staff from any UK research institution to apply for a fully funded place.

The RSE in Data & AI Workshop will provide an excellent opportunity for networking and knowledge exchange. Participants are invited to propose talks that highlight the contribution of RSEs/DRIs in facilitating Data & AI research, for example:

  • Tools, software, and pipelines developed for applications in data & AI
  • Data stewarding/management
  • Systems for big data
  • Good practices for open and reproducible research
  • Software sustainability and contribution to open source
  • Communicating with academics and industrial partners
  • Training in data science skills.
