Scientific Software Days (SSD) is a successful regional conference that has been held for eight years running at the University of Texas, Austin. This year we are seeking to expand the impact of the conference to a national scale. The target audience are users and developers of scientific software, and the goals of the conference are two fold:
Past keynotes speakers include Greg Wilson (2008), Victoria Stodden (2009), Steve Easterbrook (2010), Fernando Perez (2011), Aleksandra Pawlik and Will Schroeder (2012), Neil Chue Hong (2013), Jeff Hammond and Robert van de Geijn (2016), Beatrice Riviere and Mark Hoemmen (2017).
