20th HiRSE Seminar

On October 5, 2023, 11am, Tobias Schlauch from DLR Institute for Software Technology will continue the HiRSE Seminar with his talk on All you need to know about Software Licenses as an RSE.

Abstract: A basic understanding of software licenses and related topics is necessary for RSEs to successfully publish their research software from the legal point of view. Typical questions are: What license should I use for code, documentation, or data? Can I combine this specific set of software licenses? How to document this information?

This talk gives an overview about the copyright and software license basics. Using an example of a data analysis script written in Python, we go through the process of clarifying all relevant aspects and documenting them in a practical way. In this context, we introduce REUSE SOFTWARE which provides a standardized approach to document copyright and license information as well as helpful tools.

The talk will be held online. The connection details will be posted here:
