In this workshop, speakers will discuss the foremost methods for reproducible research.  Everything from data management to broader dissemination will be covered.


After the workshop, the organizers plan on developing a single document, journal special issue or edited volume to summarize and/or provide more in-depth coverage of the best practices raised by the speakers.

Abstracts / Downloads / Reports: 

Wednesday July 13: Software development bootcamp.


Tools & techniques that make it easier to develop, maintain and extend mathematical and scientific software, or how to achieve personal reproducibility in your own computationally driven research. Possible topics include version control, automation / scripting, and testing.


Thursday July 14 and Friday July 15: Reproducible research workshop.


Invited and submitted talks on all aspects of reproducible research (RR). Topics include but are not limited to exploration of what constitutes RR; tools, practices and strategies to improve and encourage RR; intellectual property issues arising from RR; studies of the effects of RR; and case studies of RR.
