Canadian Research Software Conference

Each year, we host the Canadian Research Software Conference, where the community of software developers in academia come together to learn and contribute best practices and explore collaboration opportunities.

2020 Conference

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Canadian Research Software Conference, originally scheduled for May 26-27 in Montreal was cancelled.

We thank our confirmed speakers and those of you who had registered to attend. We look forward to hosting you next year. If you have any questions, please contact us at
