Na próxima quinta-feira, dia 8 de dezembro, o Instituto de Matemática e Estatística (IME) da USP, realizará uma palestra com Daniel Katz, no Auditório Antonio Gilioli (Bloco A) às 10h. Haverá uma transmissão simultânea pelo YouTube.

Kratz tratará sobre o uso de softwares em projetos de pesquisa e é aberto à comunidade, devendo atrair docentes, pesquisadores e alunos que possuem interesse e projetos de estudo na área.

Abstract: This talk will discuss the role of research software as an element of scholarly research, focusing on the software that is developed by one set of researchers and then used by other researchers. Developers of such research software, whether faculty, research software engineers, students, postdocs, or other staff, typically struggle to find support for it, whether from community volunteers, funding agencies, or their institutions. The talk will discuss this situation and some community efforts to change it, and will give suggestions for projects, institutions, and funders.

Bio: Daniel S. Katz is Chief Scientist at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), Research Associate Professor in Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and the School of Information Sciences at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. His interest is in the development and use of advanced cyberinfrastructure to solve challenging problems at multiple scales, including in applications, algorithms, fault tolerance, and programming in parallel and distributed computing, and in policy issues, such as citation and credit mechanisms and practices associated with software and data, organization and community practices for collaboration, and career paths for computing researchers. He is a senior member of the IEEE and ACM, member of the IEEE Computer Society Board of Governors, founding editor and current Associate Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Open Source Software, co-founder and Steering Committee Chair of the Research Software Alliance (ReSA), and co-founder and steering committee member of the US Research Software Engineer (US-RSE) Association.
