About this workshop
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.
Speakers:
Simon Adar, CEO, Code Ocean
Sunil Gupta, Director of Product Innovation, IEEE
* Python, R, Matlab, Octave, Java, Julia, C/C++, Fortran, Perl, Lua.
