Jisc Software Preservation Invitational Workshop

Jisc and DPC invite the Jisc RDSS pilot institutions to join us for a day of thinking and discussion about the needs for software preservation in research data management and preservation.

This invitational event will bring together the funded partners within the Jisc RDSS programme with invited guests to discuss the potential requirement for software preservation. Topics will include use cases for software preservation as well as the features a system such as RDSS should incorporate in order to support those uses cases and requirements.

In the morning, participants will hear relevant speakers share their experiences with preserving software, providing context for HEI requirements for software preservation. In the afternoon, participants will engage in feedback exercises and discussion with the aim of identifying shared aims. Participants will also have the opportunity to compare perspectives and circumstances. These exercises will be fed back to Jisc to integrate into further development of RDSS.

More Information

This workshop is part of a series of events in 2019, run by The Digital Preservation Coalition on behalf of the Jisc Open Research Hub (JORH, formerly known as the Research Data Shared Service, RDSS). JORH offers a service to enable researchers to deposit data for publication, discovery, safe storage, long term archiving and preservation. As part of launching this service, Jisc have engaged the DPC to facilitate opportunities for community validation, wider dissemination, and horizon scanning with respect to the relationship between institutional research data management and digital preservation. These workshops will consult, present, and shape the digital preservation capabilities of the Open Research Hub.

This event is free of charge, but is first come first serve. In the first instance we ask participants to send no more than 2 delegates to the workshop.
