Oral Abstract

Birds of a Feather Discussion (B9) Alice Allen (Astrophysics Source Code Library/UMD)

Future Governance of the Astrophysics Source Code Library

Over the past nine years, the Astrophysics Source Code Library (ASCL, ascl.net) has grown from a small repository holding about 40 codes with hand-coded HTML pages to a resource with citable entries on over 2000 codes with a modern database structure that is user- and editor-friendly maintained by a small group of volunteers. With code authors, researchers, and journal editors depending on it, it's time to look at the governance and management of the resource to see whether its current structure best serves it and the astro community. Please join members of the ASCL advisory committee for an open discussion on what a new governance model for the ASCL might be.Sign on url:
