Software Engineering Working Group

Welcome to the home page of the Software Engineering Working Group (SWE WG)!


Our goals are to:

  • Collaborate to engineer selected R-packages which will fill in gaps in the open-source statistical software landscape, and to promote software tools designed by the working group through publications, conference presentations, workshops, training courses, and others.
  • Develop best practices for engineering high-quality statistical software, and promote the use of best practices in the broader Biostatistics community via public training materials.
  • Communicate and collaborate with other R software initiatives.


More information about who we are and our projects, as well as access to all of our resources, is available on our homepage.
