terrà un seminario dal titolo:

 Software Heritage: Building the Universal Software Archive for Open Science ”


Software is at the heart of our digital society and embodies a growing
part of our scientific, technical and organisational knowledge.

Software Heritage is an open non-profit initiative whose mission is to
ensure that this precious body of knowledge will be preserved over time
and made available to all.

We do this for multiple reasons. To preserve the scientific and
technological knowledge embedded in software source code. To allow
better software development and reuse for society and industry. To
foster better science, building the infrastructure for preserving,
sharing and referencing research software, a stepping stone for
reproducibility, and a necessary complement to Open Access.

We do this now, because we are at a turning point: the founding fathers
are still around, and willing to contribute their knowledge, but only
for a limited time. And we face the risk of massive loss of source code
developed by the Free and Open Source community, with code hosting sites
that shut down when their popularity decreases.

Software Heritage archives already more than 5 billion unique source
code files, spanning more than 85 million projects, with their full
development history: in this talk we will review the motivations and the
challenges that arise in building such a unique shared infrastructure.

Tutti gli interessati sono invitati a partecipare.
