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.
