This poster documents efforts by the both the FORCE11 Software Citation Working Group (https://www.force11.org/software-citation-working-group) and WSSSPE working group on software credit (http://wssspe.researchcomputing.org.uk/). We discuss the six principles of software citation, related work, and key challenges/research directions, including suggestions for metadata necessary for software citation and some examples.<br></div>
