Collaborations Workshop 2017 (CW17): The Internet of Things and Open Data


The Collaborations Workshop 2017 (CW17) is the Software Sustainability Institute’s research software event of 2017. It brings together key members of the research software community to present, discuss, build, make, network and explore key and current areas of the research software landscape. Many RSE groups will have representatives attending.

The Collaborations Workshop 2017 (CW17; #CollabW17) will take place in Leeds at the Leeds University Business School, on 27th–29th March 2017.

CW17 is focused on the hot topics of The Internet of Things (IoT) and Open Data, both of which harbour the promise of deep changes to the way we interact with devices and data in the coming years, both also have a clear impact on research and are software driven.

All of this will take place in the unique unconference style format of the Collaborations Workshop series. This includes lightning talks, discussion sessions, speed blogging, collaborative ideas sessions, mini-workshops and a Hackday where teams compete for the generous prizes on offer.

On average, people meet 15 new people at a CW event and come away intending to start two new collaborations. There is also a social programme focused on exploring the host city’s location, history and cultural heritage; this also offers more opportunities for networking and enrichment.

Register for CW17 at Eventbrite.
