The early bird rate for the Second Conference on Non-Textual Information “Software and Services for Science (S3)” has been extended. Those wishing to attend the conference have until 13 April 2017 to register at the reduced rate.

Under the title “Software and Services for Science (S3)”, the English-language conference focuses primarily on the topics of sustainability and referencing scientific software, trends in programming practice, software sharing and legal aspects. The event offers a forum where infrastructure facilities and users can share information about the requirements, expectations and needs concerning scientific software in practice.

The keynote “Incentives and rewards in scientific software communities” will be held by Edzer Pebesma, Professor of Geoinformatics at the University of Münster. In his lecture, Pebesma will talk about the incentives and reward systems for scientists involved in the development and provision of software. The programme also includes sessions on “Infrastructure, Strategy and General Conditions”, “Persistent Software Referencing”, “Impact and Sustainability through Accessible, Reusable and Open Software” and “Decentralised protocols and apps in science”.

TIB is hosting the Second Conference on Non-Textual Information in collaboration with its partners ZB MED – Information Centre for Life Sciences and ZBW – Leibniz Information Centre for Economics. L3S Research Centre supports the conference in the area of programme planning.
