CRSC 2019 Highlights
We asked our attendees, “What was the highlight of the 2019 CRSC?”
All keynotes are interesting and inspiring – they really highlight the important roles software and informatics play in modern research environment
I found the keynote speakers to be extremely interesting. I followed up with [a keynote] as to possible collaborations between our respective fields.
Very engaging topics and well presented. Enough time for questions!
Great talks and welcoming atmosphere.
Interesting seeing all the projects and work in Software!
Amazing opportunity for networking and learning.
It makes us feel part of a bigger community which shares many of our own challenges and that’s very helpful.
