Hi everyone (long time no post),
I thought some of you might be interested in this Web seminar on
scientific software... As far as I can tell it is open to non-members.

We are pleased to announce the latest physicsworld.com webinar sponsored by
A Crack in the Code: Why software fails in scientific research, and how to fix it
Date: Thursday 25 March 2010
Time: 3 p.m. GMT (4 p.m. Central Europe, 11 a.m. East Coast US)
Where: online - registration is FREE at
Why you should attend:
Millions of lines of code have been developed to support scientific research.
Although an increasingly important part of almost all research projects, most of
this software is barely fit for purpose compared with equivalent systems in the
commercial world. The code is hard to understand and maintain, lacking
documentation and version control, and is continually "re-invented" as the
software developers move on to new projects.
This webinar will investigate how this situation has come about, why it is
important to the future of research, and what can be done about it.
