Practical Information

This talk will be given by Konrad Hinsen and Nicolas Rougier.

Conducting research in a reproducible way is often perceived as an additional difficulty. If such effort is not recognized, the incentive for doing so is not clear for most persons. Several conferences and journals have thus started strongly encouraging such practice (artifact evaluations, companion websites, dissemination platforms, …) and some are actually pioneering toward an alternative publication model. Konrad Hinsen and Nicolas Rougier are both behind the ReScience journal initiative that targets computational research and encourages the explicit replication of already published research, promoting new and open-source implementations in order to ensure that the original research is reproducible.

In this webinar, we will give an overview of the connections between reproducible research and publication and of the main social and technical challenges that should be taken into consideration. We will then present the ReScience initiative and make a demo of ActivePapers a possible solution for making computations reproducible and publishable.
