We’re delighted to announce that RSECon2022 will be held in the Frederick Douglass Centre at Newcastle University with Mark Turner as our Programme Chair.

Mark is Head of Research Software Engineering at Newcastle University and has been heavily involved in the community for a number of years now, serving as a trustee on the society trustee board a few years ago. The trustees are really pleased to have him on board as Programme Chair for RSECon and know that the conference is in very safe hands. The conference committee are now beginning to meet and prepare the programme.

The conference will take place from Tuesday 6th to Thursday 8th September with colocated events on the Monday and Friday of that week.
