New Zealand Research Software Engineering Conference

For the last four years, NeSI has hosted a successful and increasingly popular Science Coding Conference, initially with a strong programme focus on the Crown Research Institutes (CRIs) and their national organisation Science NZ. It would seem 2020 is a year of change, so along with hosting a free and online version of the conference this year, NeSI is also renaming it to be the NZ Research Software Engineers (RSE) Conference. You can read more about that decision here.

This year, from 9-11 September, we invite you to join us for an interactive and impactful virtual programme that shares the tools, approaches, challenges, and opportunities related to writing code and developing applications that enable research.

NeSI’s NZ RSE conference is one of the few events where scientific programmers, software engineers, developers, IT managers, coding enthusiasts, and big data analysts from Crown Research Institutes, universities, and other public sector organisations can discuss how they’re supporting research ecosystems. By moving online, we’re hoping to welcome even more perspectives and contributions from Australasia’s science and research communities.
