ReproHack - A hackaton on reproducible data analysis
Organizer: VIB Bioinformatics Core
Start: Tuesday, 20 October 2020 @ 09:00
End: Tuesday, 20 October 2020 @ 00:00Description:
During a ReproHack, participants attempt to reproduce published research of their choice from a list of proposed papers with publicly available associated code and data. This approach should provide a low-pressure environment to actually get working with other people's code and data. Besides evaluating the analysis of papers, this hackaton is also about working together, networking and learning from each other!
Disclaimer: It’s imperative to note that this event is by no means an attempt to criticize or discredit work. We see reproduction as beneficial scientific activity in itself, with useful outcomes for authors and valuable learning experiences for the participants and the research community as a whole.
Nominate a paper
We accept nominations from anyone. Both researchers that have submitted a paper and would like to test whether one of your own papers is reproducible, and researchers that want to dig into the code of another paper! Either way, we encourage proponents to seek consent from the original authors for their nominations. Nominate a paper via this link. The papers will be assembled and showcased before selection via this link.
