Subject

Description

This report is intended to highlight the issues and concerns raised at the summit for preserving software and identify key next steps for ensuring long term access to software. To best represent the distinct perspectives involved in the summit this report is not an aggregate overview. Instead, the report includes three perspective pieces: a curatorial perspective, a perspective from a humanities scholar and the perspective of two scientists working to ensure access to scientific source code.
