I thought that this might be of interest to some.

The *Software Sustainability Institute’s Collaborations Workshop 2015
(CW15)* 25-27 March 2015 in Oxford, UK - www.software.ac.uk/cw15 focusses
on software, best practice and the social side of working past the
boundaries of traditional disciplines and roles to accelerate research
outcomes, or put differently, *interdisciplinarity done right!*

What will you learn by attending:

• The social and technical sides of interdisciplinary working.
• Examples of best practice of when it's been effective - and horror
stories of when it has not.
• Examples of techniques and technologies that could be applied from one
discipline to another - discipline hopping.

*CW15* brings together researchers, software developers, managers, funders,
publishers and more to share practice, explore ideas, highlight problems
and establish a community based understanding of the state of
collaboration and software.*

This will also be your chance to meet many of the Institute's 2015 Fellows (
ambassadors for software in their varied research domains; these include
physics, digital history, genetics, glaciology, addiction studies, systems
biology, to programming languages and high performance computing.

CW15 is an 'unconference' event and this interdisciplinarity theme will run
through the schedule, which includes keynotes,lightning talks, demos,
collaboration and discussion sessions, and concludes with this year's *CW

The CW Hackday focus will be on topics related to effective
interdisciplinarity; reproducible research, data/code sharing and data
science so you are free to *bring your own data*. There will be *prizes for
the best team* efforts. The Hackday will start on the evening of March 26th
after the main CW15 event.Please note attending the Hackday only *is free*
but still *requires registration*.

Register for CW15 and/or CW Hackday at www.software.ac.uk/cw15 - we look
forward to seeing you!
