Best Practices in Computational Reproducibility and Reuse, from why to how - Free Code Ocean Workshop at ICRA 2017

IEEE and RAS to provide a FREE Workshop during the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA 2017) will be held from 29 May-3 June 2017 at Sands Expo and Convention Centre, Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.

Sharing open source is becoming a norm among researchers in all fields of science. But it is not always clear why it’s important and how to do it in the best possible way.

During the workshop, we will talk about best practices in computational reproducibility and reuse. In addition, we will introduce a new service provided to IEEE authors called Code Ocean. For the first time, IEEE authors can upload code and data in 10 programming languages* and link a working code in a computational environment with the associated article. By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to publish their conference algorithm, making it automatically available on their article page in IEEE Xplore. That algorithm can be cited using a dedicated Digital Object Identifier (DOI) in addition to the article citations.

The platform provides open access to the published software code, data, and results to view and download for everyone. Users can execute all published code without having to install anything on their personal computer. Everything runs in the cloud on CPUs or GPUs according to the user needs.

* Python, R, Matlab, Octave, Java, Julia, C/C++, Fortran, Perl, Lua.


The Workshop will be held on Friday, 2 June 2017 from 9:00-11:00

Code Ocean is a cloud-based executable research platform that provides researchers and developers an easy way to share, discover and run code published in academic journals and conferences.
Explore algorithms:


IEEE publishes a large volume of articles that reference code and algorithms, but - until now- readers had no way to interact with the code and simulations. Readers were only able to read the algorithms or download static supplemental files.

IEEE is excited to partner with Code Ocean, a cloud-based executable research platform that allows gives authors the ability to upload their algorithms so that other IEEE Xplore users can discover, view, and run them in real-time. This additional interactivity allows users a more robust and efficient way to experiment with algorithms, reproduce the research, and develop new algorithms.

By using Code Ocean, researchers, engineers, developers, and scientists can upload code and data in 10 programming languages and link a working code in a cloud-based computational environment with the associated IEEE article. A Digital Object Identifier (DOI) is assigned to each algorithm that further promotes correct attribution and improves citations.
