With almost 100 participants from a variety of research institutes and universities from Belgium, Europe and beyond, we enjoyed a wonderful first edition of our conference. As our first conference ran online, we're happy to keep sharing the presentations with you via our website. Find an overview of the presentations in the schedule below and click through to the presentations themselves.
ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
The big promise of software is to make the impossible possible and to make our lives easier - to automate the tedious and the error prone. Modern scientific research relies on these properties of software and on the talent, skill, and dedication of software developers. But all too often, research software and its developers are hidden behind the science they make possible.
This is a day for research software and research software developers. Today we gather together to make our software better, more reliable, more trustworthy, but most of all, to share our vast collective experience. Join our community for an exciting day of talks and workshops to discuss the challenges you face and the bugs you chase.

The aim of this conference is to foster a community of research software developers and to collectively improve the standard of software used for scientific research. For this, our first edition, we focus on three main themes: reproducibility, software quality and infrastructure.
The event is intended for:
Researchers who develop software for research purposes
Software developers working in a research group
Organisations that provide services for research software developers
Anyone else with an interest in these topics
The deadline for submissions of talks and workshop proposals has passed, however if you have something to say, whether broadly related to the topics mentioned above or not, we kindly request you to prepare for a lightning talk. During the last time-slot we will encourage everyone to take the word and present anything of interest within 5 minutes.
