Software and data have increasingly become an integral part of our research in the audio and music community. In the process, the way that we do research in this field is changing, with methods and software becoming increasingly complex, and reliable datasets becoming increasingly important.
The first SoundSoftware one-day workshop on "Software and Data for Audio and Music Research" will include talks and discussions on issues such as robust software development for audio and music research, reproducible research, management of research data, and open access.
While our project is concentrating on the audio and music research community, we believe many of these issues will have wider interest, and we want to link with other communities for which proper handling of research software and data are important.
(note: this programme is still provisional: last updated 24th May.)
