Following the success of the First Conference of Research Software Engineers, we are pleased to announce that the Second Conference will be held at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester on the 7-8 September 2017. As for the First Conference, we are expecting an international mix of over 200 attendees, and a programme full of interesting talks, posters, hands-on tutorials and discussion workshops.


Registration for the conference has now SOLD OUT. There may be a very small number of tickets that may become available in August. Please sign up to the waiting list on the registration site if you would like to be notified if they become available. Otherwise, we still have a very small number of sponsor spaces, which come with Bronze+ or Silver sponsorship of the conference.

A list of the titles and abstracts of the talks, and the workshops and hands-on tutorials is available, with keynote speakers and the allocation of presentations to individual parallel sessions announced nearer the time.

The Workshop on Sustainable Software for Science: Practice and Experiences (WSSSPE5.1) will be held at the School of Computer Science at the University of Manchester on Wednesday 6th September (day before RSE2017). This workshop aims to capture the state of the art in sustainable research software, discuss ongoing efforts to improve it, and identify potential topics to act upon. Registration for WSSSPE5.1 is separate to registration for RSE2017, and is handled on their website.


With over 200 attendees from 14 countries, sponsorship provides both significant exposure, and more importantly, a good opportunity for companies and organisations to connect with Research Software Engineers from around the world.
