    • Minisymposium: Fostering Software Engineering Best Practice within Research Teams, Tuesday July 3, 1:30-3:30pm, Singapore Room
      • Talks from the developers of four large community codes  about approaches they have adopted to unite the teams of people around the development and maintenance of shared codebases. These will cover not just the programming languages and development tools that have been shown to work well, but also how to encourage adoption of good software engineering techniques by professionals and students of other disciplines, and the career-development needs of the research software engineers who will execute the bulk of the work.
    • Minisymposium: Increasing Credibility of Simulation and Analytic Software for Science, Tuesday July 3, 2:00-4:00pm, Singapore Room
      • Three talks about software engineering and reproducibility, and ways to help the community become more aware of both the issues and solutions, followed by a group discussion.
    • Poster: A New Community-Driven Resource for Scientific Software Improvement Exchange, Tuesday July 3, 7:30pm-9:30pm, Foyer 2nd Floor
      • Introducing the Better Scientific Software ( site, and soliciting contributions.
