Reproducibility in Experimental and Computational Sciences

An RDI2 Workshop Event 

Join us for an interactive, open-ended discussion on reproducibility in large-scale experimental and computational research as representatives of computational science and domain science communities present a wide range of perspectives and priorities.

The agenda will focus on two themes: (1) what it means for computational science to be reproducible and best practices for reproducibility, and (2) why reproducibility is hard in the computational context and the available tools, technologies, and practices that can support the practice of reproducibility at Rutgers University and beyond.
