Maximizing Impact and Reproducibility of Acoustic Modelling Software Workshop
13 July 2020
Software is a common & valuable research output for researchers working in the fields of Mathematical and Computational Acoustics. Producing it well, and making it public, can have a significant positive effect on the number of citations and the level of impact your work achieves.
It is also becoming increasingly recognised by funding bodies. UKRI’s impact criterion includes that “activities should be undertaken that work with beneficiaries to shorten the time between discovery and use of knowledge” - a requirement that well-produced software fulfills.
To help all researchers improve their knowledge and practices in this area, the Computational Acoustics and the Mathematical Acoustics Special Interest Groups of the UK Acoustics Network are coming together with the Sustainable Software Institute offer this one-day workshop.
- Celebrate existing best practice from academics who champion open source. Hear what worked, what didn’t work, and what they might do differently if they were starting again now.
- Discover the needs of industry and hear about what software tools benefit them most.
- Learn about the national strategy from the EPSRC and the SSI.
- Scope out the support necessary to grow a new ‘Community of Best Practice’. This is a new initiative from the SSI that would help our community work together to produce better research software outputs that are more readily adopted and interfaced.
Format of the Workshop:
- The workshop will bring participants together virtually using ZOOM teleconferencing and online collaboration tools. This has been made possible through support by V-KEMS.
- It will be a one-day event, with morning & afternoon sessions separated by a lunch break
- The morning session 11:00-13:00 will be predominately webinars, with presentations from academia and industry.
- The afternoon session 14:00-16:00 will include breakout sessions, where the needs of the community & potential for support and collaboration will be discussed.
- Confirmed speakers include:
- Prof Timo Betcke (http://bempp.com/)
- Prof Christophe Geuzaine (https://gmsh.info/)
- Prof Michael Vorländer (http://www.virtualacoustics.org/)
