Please note that the mailing list currently only accepts mails smaller than 40kB, which should be sufficient for text. If you like to point to other content, please upload it to an external place and include the URL in the email. The reason for this limitation is not only general courtesy towards all recipients, but also that otherwise traffic generated by the mailing list could create a financial problem.


Please don’t use the mailing list for long discussions, use the GWDG RocketChat channel instead!

Monthly Community Call

In the December Call of the German-speaking OKF working group Open Science in 2016 it has been agreed to combine the monthly call with the de-RSE initiative at the beginning of 2017. Both topics, Open Science and Research Software Engineering, are closely related, pursue goals with a common set of interfaces, and address a similar circle of interested parties.

A monthly call is also considered for the de-RSE initiative, but for now both calls are held jointly.

Dates and times for the monthly community calls are listed here.


The website hosts a blog with contributions from the community members. Your ideas, topics and posts in German, English, or both are very welcome! The README includes instructions for getting a local preview of the site.


Of course please do not hesitate to use the mailing list if you have questions about the background, aims, and activities of de-RSE.

In case personal contact is what you need, you can directly contact the board.
