Sustainability is the ultimate goal for any software. If a future for software is not secured, the time and money invested in its development is wasted. With this level of importance placed on software sustainability, it is no surprise that a number of myths have sprung up around how to achieve it.

In this entertaining lecture, Neil Chue Hong, Director of OMII-UK, will challenge five myths that surround the goal of software sustainability. Neil will call upon OMII-UK's long history of working with projects from the UK research community, achieving software sustainability and participating in sustainable projects. After discussing the misconceptions that led to the five sustainability myths, Neil will describe OMII-UK's route for achieving software sustainability through engagement with the research community.
