Topic for 2015: REPRODUCIBILITY
It is one of the basic methodological standards of scientific work that a measured or observed fact be reproducible. If the results of scientific research cannot be reproduced across time and place, they do not qualify to belong to the corpus of established knowledge. However, there have been increasing concerns about reproducibility in recent years, most notably in fields such as complex systems studies, translational researching biomedicine, social psychology, cognitive neuroscience, computational information retrieval, or big data science in general. Several scientific communities have launched initiatives to counter what they regard as dramatically undermining their scientific credibility. Whether due to simple error, misrepresented data, or sheer fraud: lacking reproducibility corrupts both intra-scientific interaction based on truthfulness and the science-society link based on the trustworthiness of scientific evidence.
Cortona Week will present insights into problems and practices of reproducible research from various points of view. The contributions cover the entire range from general transdisciplinary issues to aspects of reproducibility concerning specialized research areas.
