Canadian RSE Conference

CANARIE hosted the first annual Canadian Research Software Conference to further build a cohesive Canadian community of research software developers, that advance the use and reuse of powerful software tools.

A group from the UK Association committee members attended the CANARIE Research Software Engineering Conference in Ottawa in May 2018 to present and show support to our Canadian colleagues at the start of their journey building their national RSE community.

CANARIE funds and promotes reusable research software tools and national research data management initiatives to accelerate discovery, provides identity management services to the academic community, and offers advanced networking and cloud resources to boost commercialization in Canada’s technology sector.

Academic researchers collaborated, exchanged ideas, and discussed common issues with a goal of ensuring maximum impact of public funds for research, through the application of state-of-the-art research software.
