Welcome and Orientation (Doug James)

8:30 - 10:00

Session 0: Reproducibility in Large-Scale Computing: Setting the Tone (Victoria Stodden)

Presentation Slides

  • Reproducibility in Computational Science (Victoria Stodden) "I have yet to meet a scientist without some intuitive understanding that reproducibility is a desirable component of scientific research. However, opinions differ widely on the scope and seriousness of the reproducibility issue, and on which actions or solutions are appropriate. In this talk I will outline some of the history of the reproducibility discussion in the scientific community, from the Yale 2009 Roundtable on Data and Code Sharing to more recent efforts. I will use this narrative to motivate one frame for addressing the why, what, and how of reproducible computational science."
