Reproducible Computational Geosciences @ AGILE 2017
Pre-conference workshop at the 20th AGILE International Conference on Geographic Information Science, Wageningen, May 9 2017
Reproducible research (RR) gains more attention each year with prominent papers, editorials
and blog posts as journals, researchers and funders drive forward the agenda on open
science. But still the majority of papers analyzing data, including diverse and often unique
spatio-temporal observations, are not accompanied by complete materials (data, methods,
complete results) to reproduce the methodology and computations, so that anyone can
reproduce the findings.
In this half-day workshop we introduce the topic in the GIScience domain with a focus on
Contributions on the topics
- lessons learned and best practices on RR, incl. previously published examples
- reports on reproducibility studies
- challenges of RR/open science
- tools and workflows supporting computational RR
- education in RR methods
- archives and repositories
- legal aspects of RR (privacy, licenses, terms of service)
Workshop papers (< 1000 words) must be submitted via pull request to the workshop’s GitHub repository, see instructions below.
Selected papers will be invited for presentation at the workshop.
- Invited talks (1-2, ~15 minutes each)
- Talks (10 minutes + 10 minutes discussion)
- Discussion (60 minutes)

How to submit
Fork the workshop repository and create a new Markdown document named
first_authors_last_name.md in the directory
submissions. Then create a pull request.
If you have troubles working with GitHub, please get in touch with the workshop organizers or send your abstract via email to email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, and email@example.com.
Feedback will be given in the pull request discussion. Accepted papers will be merged and published on the website.
At least one reviewer conducts an in depth review of the submission. The wiki contains guidelines for reviewers and the review process.
