RSE conference call for proposals now open

The RSE Conference Committee is currently calling for 15-minute talks, posters and 90-minute workshops or tutorials. Submit your proposals <> by 28th April 2017

We invite anyone who works in research and cares about software to the Research Software Engineers Conference 2017<> taking place on 7th & 8th September at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester. Registration will open in June.

Our inaugural RSE conference in 2016 brought together 202 Research Software Engineers from 14 countries and was a huge success:

"This might have been my 30th conference but it was the first where I felt thematically 100% at home and understood. I understood that I am not alone with my observation, practices, solutions, problems. Great discussions, great networking, great venue, great organisation."

"It was a fantastic conference put together really well. I especially loved the small size (very manageable and easy to meet everyone!) and the venue (how refreshing to walk to other rooms quickly instead of running across conference centres)."

"I felt a great disturbance in my twitter as if loads of #RSE suddenly we massively enthused. I fear something awesome has happened #RSE16"

"Had an amazing time meeting & talking to tons of awesome folks building software in a research context this week at #RSE16. Thanks everyone!"

Help us make this year's conference even better by proposing talks or workshops, or simply by attending the conference.

We can provide a mentor for less experienced conference speakers or workshop leaders. Questions before submitting a proposal can be sent to

We look forward to reading your proposals.

Kindest regards,

The RSE Conference Committee
