NESCent Reproducible Science Hackathon Deadline nears

Posted by a.hay on 6 October 2014 - 5:23pm

The deadline for submissions to the Reproducible Science Hackathon, which takes place on December 8th-11th 2014 at the National Evolutionary Synthesis Center, North Carolina, is now only four days away.

The four day interdisciplinary workshop will teach attendees how to use both the tools and resources they will need to practice reproducible science. This means experiments and research can not only be repeated but built upon by both the original researcher and others.

Surprisingly, such skills are not often taught and so the Hackathon will provide an excellent opportunity for attendees to review their existing approach to research and also undergo further training. It will also dedicate half of its time to address and resolve challenges and obstacles that have so far hindered a wider take-up of sustainability in the field.

If you would like to attend, the deadline for applications is Friday October 10th 2014, and successful applicants will be informed by October 17th. Support with travel costs is available and the organisers especially encourage women and minority attendees to apply.
