By Raniere Silva, Community Officer, Software Sustainability Institute.
The Docker Containers for Reproducible Research Workshop (C4RR) is one of the Institute’s 2017 events. It will bring together members of the research software community—researchers and developers—to present, discuss, network and explore the landscape of containers when applied to research and reproducibility of results. C4RR will take place at Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge, from 27th to 28th June 2017.
If you wish to attend C4RR, register here.
C4RR is focused on the hot topics of reproducible research and containers such as Docker. Containers promise deep changes to the way that we run some software on our local machines or on the cloud, which could have a big impact on research and how to reproduce it.
Our call for papers closed on 31st March. We are now contacting successful authors and will add more details to the agenda in the coming weeks. If you missed the call for papers deadline but want to get involved, we’ve opened a call for workshops and posters. There will be activities on the night of 27th June 2017 to further facilitate networking and give you a chance to explore some of the culture in Cambridge.
The Software Sustainability Institute is committed to equal opportunities and creating a safe, inclusive environment for people of all backgrounds. We strive to better represent the communities we’re part of. Thus, we highly encourage candidates from diverse backgrounds to register for and participate in our events as we aim for representatives of all people, all backgrounds, and all perspectives.
