The CSIRO Conference on Computational and Data Intensive Science

Reproducible Research

Workshop summary

Computational science is often not repeatable to the extent necessary to evaluate correctness and the importance of results. Without access to the software and data and a re-runnable workflow to verify results, the value of a publication is greatly diminished. This workshop will focus on the elements of a scientific computing workflow required to make it truly reproducible.

Topics planned include:

  • Introduction to Reproducible Research
  • Sharing & Publishing Code and Data
  • Capturing Provenance
  • Reproducible Research with R: Markdown, Knitr, Packrat
  • Reproducibility in Climate Modelling
  • Software and Data Management Planning
  • Hands-On with eResearch Learning Stations (those that relate to RR)

The C3DIS 2017 will bring together researchers with computational and data science specialists from CSIRO, publicly funded research organisations and other invited institutions and organisations. This will enable attendees to share their science outcomes and learnings, and build a community of practice around Computational and Data Intensive science.

Free for CSIRO staff and invited participants
