At the next ICASSP conference (April 15-20, 2007, in Hawaii), we are organizing a special session on the topic, together with Mauro Barni and Fernando Perez-Gonzalez. This should allow discussion and exchange of ideas with a broader public. We will have six papers covering various aspects of reproducible research: case studies, public datasets, publishing issues, tools for making research reproducible, etc. I can already say that the papers look very interesting. I look already forward to the conference and the inspiring discussions around (and not only because of its location ;-)).
The idea behind reproducible research is quite simple: all the information relevant to the work should be made available. This means that the publication(s), the data and code used to produce results, figures, etc. should be available, typically online. In practice, this does require some effort, which is largely paid back in additional visibility, impact, and ease of reuse of the work.
Welcome on this blog about reproducible research!
The goal of this blog is to exchange ideas about reproducible research in general, and on how to make all our lab’s research reproducible. May the exchange of ideas be fruitful, and result in a good setup for reproducible research!
