We are pleased to announce a workshop on curating for reproducibility at Haverford College on April 2-3, 2020.
Research reproducibility is a topic of increasing concern for researchers, funders, publishers, and the public. Reproducibility was recently defined by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, as “obtaining consistent results using the same input data; computational steps, methods, and code; and conditions of analysis.”
Project TIER (https://www.projecttier.org) and the CURE consortium (http://cure.web.unc.edu/) have teamed up to offer a workshop on curating for reproducibility. The workshop will explore a model of curation in which the object to be archived is a research compendium that includes not only the paper, but the data, analysis code, and comprehensive documentation that ensure transparency and reproducibility.
Who should attend?
The day-and-a-half CURE-TIER workshop is designed for librarians, archivists, and information professionals who are interested in integrating principles of transparency and reproducibility into data curation activities.
Application deadline is February 21, 2020. Space is limited!
Successful applicants will incur no cost for registration, lodging, or meals. Some financial support for travel is available upon request.
