Hello everyone,

We hope this email finds you well!

We are writing to invite you to yet another RDA
<https://www.rd-alliance.org/> ECEIG "Ask me Anything
meeting; the Early Career and Engagement Interest Group (ECEIG)
<https://www.rd-alliance.org/groups/early-career-and-engagement-ig> has
been formed within RDA with a focus on connecting with and supporting early
career professionals both within and outside RDA. The "Ask me Anything"
meetings are hosted on a monthly basis, addressing topics that might be of
general interest to ECRs - this month's AMA is dedicated to:

*Archiving and referencing all software source code using Software Heritage*

Our speaker Professor Roberto Di Cosmo will show how to use the Software
Heritage infrastructure to seamlessly archive all software source code, and
how to obtain and use the special intrinsic identifiers for software source
code that are needed to reference the source code in a way that supports
reproducibility in the long run. Pointers to detailed guidelines will be

Short bio from Professor Di Cosmo:

An alumnus of the Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa, with a PhD in Computer
Science from the University of Pisa, Roberto Di Cosmo was associate
professor for almost a decade at Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris. In
1999, he became a Computer Science full professor at University Paris
Diderot, where he was head of doctoral studies for Computer Science from
2004 to 2009. A trustee of the IMDEA Software institute, and member of the
national committee for Open Science in France, he is currently on leave at

Some more information about the speaker:

Professor Di Cosmo’s research activity spans theoretical computing,
functional programming, parallel and distributed programming, the semantics
of programming languages, type systems, rewriting and linear logic, and,
more recently, the new scientific problems posed by the general adoption of
Free Software, with a particular focus on static analysis of large software
collections. He has published over 20 international journals articles and
50 international conference articles.

In 2008, he created and coordinated the european research project Mancoosi,
that had a budget of 4.4Me and brought together 10 partners to improve the
quality of package-based open source software systems.

Following the evolution of our society under the impact of IT with great
interest, he is a long term Free Software advocate, contributing to its
adoption since 1998 with the best-seller Hijacking the world, seminars,
articles and software. He created in October 2007 the Free Software
thematic group of Systematic, that helped fund over 50 Open Source research
and development collaborative projects for a consolidated budget of over
200Me. From 2010 to 2018, he was director of IRILL, a research structure
dedicated to Free and Open Source Software quality.

He created in 2015, and now directs Software Heritage, an initiative to
build the universal archive of all the source code publicly available, in
partnership with UNESCO.
