2016 Software Infrastructure for Sustained Innovation (SI2) Principal Investigators Workshop
This report summarizes the organization and execution of the National Science Foundation (NSF) sponsored workshop, “Software Infrastructure for Sustained Innovation (SI2) Principal Investigator (PI) Workshop,” and the observations and discussions it generated. The workshop was held February 16-17, 2016 at The Westin Arlington Gateway in Arlington, VA and was professionally facilitated by Knowinnovation. It was attended by 98 participants from SI2 program supported projects, industry, and government laboratories. The workshop served as an open forum for identifying challenges and consolidating common approaches used by software practitioners to organize, manage, and sustain academic research software infrastructures. By facilitating the open exchange of experiences and knowledge, the workshop yielded valuable insights to help inform existing and new software infrastructure projects, and also helped nurture a community essential to addressing upcoming challenges in software infrastructures.
