PIDs for software - shedding some light on a dark puzzle

The overwhelming majority of software source code is developed and used outside the academic world, in industry and in developer communities. As a consequence, software in general is either not formally identified or referenced at all, or is identified and referenced through methods that are totally different from the ones typically used in scholarly publications.

In this session we will provide an overview of the current practices of software identification, including use cases and identifier schemes from different academic domains and in industry to show the complexe puzzle of identifying software.

During the session we will propose ideas for better identification of research software and ask for the help of the audience to estimate their impact and move forward in community adoption.
