ReproHack Hub Launch

18 November 2021 - 10:00-17:00

All of our events may be recorded and shared via the University of Sheffield Kaltura platform so those who cannot attend may still benefit. We will consider your attendance implict consent to this.

For all those interested in reproducibility and code review!

The ReproHack core team, in collaboration with the N8 Centre of Excellence in Computationally Intensive Research and Sheffield Research Software Engineering are thrilled to invite you to celebrate with us on November 18th 2021 the launch of our ReproHack Hub!

Reprohacks are one day hackathons providing a sandbox environment for practicing reproducible research. Authors submit papers with associated code and data for review. During events, participants attempt to reproduce submitted papers of their choice and feed back their experiences to authors by completing a review form. We spend time sharing and learning from the experiences of participants in the group and informal peer-to-peer training sessions often emerge! e.g. we’ve had impromptu Docker (container) school, live demos of publishing code to Zenodo and mentored contributions to open source projects.

There will also be two short talks:

  • Dr. Esther Plomp, TU Delft, will introduce the Turing Way community, a great resource to continue learning on these topics.
  • Prof. Stephen Eglen, Cambridge University will introduce the CodeCheck project, an initiative working towards integrating reproducibility checks into the scholarly communication process.

So if you would like friendly review on the reproducibility of the code and data associated with a paper, submit it to our ReproHack Hub paper list.

If you want to get practical experience in reproducibility by working with other people’s materials, join us on the day.

We hope to see you there!
