Title: Software citation today and tomorrow
Abstract: This seminar will discuss the state of software citation, starting with history of work done by the FORCE11 Software Citation Working Group, leading to a published set of software citation principles (https://doi.org/10.7717/peerj-cs.86), as well as other prior work. It will also talk about where the community is going, what the obstacles to progress are, and how they may be overcome.
