This year's Software Sustainability Institute's Collaboration's Workshop, CW19, was held from 1–3 April at the University of Loughborough. There were almost 70 attendees from all over the UK and further afield too - Germany, the Netherlands and the US. I am of the opinion that this is one of the best types networking workshops I have been to, possibly equalled by the UK RSE conferences.

The Software Sustainability Institute's Collaborations Workshop 2016 is now over. If you blinked, you missed it. You shall now have to wait until 27-29th March 2017 for the next one, to be held at the Leeds Business School. I still think that this is one of the best networking conferences around and well worth attending, though for the purposes of full disclosure I have to admit that I have a dual role: as a peripheral organiser as well as a full workshop attendee. The workshop runs over two days and is followed by a hack day which I was unable to attend because of other commitments.

The Collaborations Workshop (CW) is coming home to Edinburgh. It will be held on 21st-22nd March in the Royal College of Surgeons with an optional hack day on 23rd of March. The series of CWs were originally started under the now defunct Open Middleware Infrastructure Institute UK (OMII-UK) that held two workshops in Edinburgh in 2009 and 2010 in what was then the National e-Science Institute in Edinburgh. The aim of these workshops was to get researchers to come together, talk, avoid reinventing the wheel and to establish fruitful collaborations. It was, and has remained, a most excellent networking event.

This year's Collaboration Workshop, organised by the Software Sutainability Institute, was held in the dreamy spires of Oxford. In particular Merton College, Oxford which turned out to be an apt setting for this kind of thing.
