Registration has opened for the Research Software Engineer (RSE) Conference! Please register here:http://tinyurl.com/RSEconference

We would encourage you to sign up as soon as possible.  There has been a huge level of interest in this event - with more people on the waiting list than we have places available. For this reason, we are going to release tickets in tranches starting with 100 today.  There will be further announcements when more tickets become available.

The fee is £120. The fee covers both days of the conference, lunches, refreshments and the conference dinner. You will need to arrange your own travel and accommodation – a list of hotels can be found here:http://www.rse.ac.uk/conf2016_accommodation.

The RSE Conference is the first conference to focus exclusively on the issues that affect people who write and use software in research. The conference will take place in Manchester on 15-16 September 2016. We have an excellent agenda lined up, with speakers from industry and academia, and a series of talks and workshops from RSEs that investigate everything from the latest tools and engineering practices, to the way the RSE community works. We have attracted contributions from across the world, which will be showcased during an international networking session.

This event would not have been possible without the support of our sponsors. Our thanks to Microsoft Research, Intel, the Scientific Computing Department at STFC, Research IT at the University of Manchester, the Software Sustainability Institute and CANARIE. We would also like to thank the EPSRC for their support of the RSE community.

We are looking for volunteers to help with the running of the conference. If you would like a free registration in return for helping out, then please get in touch with info at rse.ac.uk<mailto:info at rse.ac.uk>.
