The Docker Containers for Reproducible Research Workshop (C4RR) is nearly upon us. It will take place from the 27th to 28th June 2017 at the Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge.
The latest changes and additions to the agenda are now live. Tuesday 27th June will be filled most with talks. 28th June will start with two demos. Delegates will need to select one to attend since they will be run in parallel and are responsible to configure their machine in advance with the requirements of the demo they plan to attend.
28th June afternoon will kick-off with the Sponsored Keynote Talk by Kenji Takeda from Microsoft. Kenji was one of the speakers at Collaborations Workshop 2017—you can watch the recording of his talk here—and we are very happy to have the opportunity to listen him talking about containers.
The workshop dinner will happen at the end of the first day, 27th June. We will be waiting delegates at The Cambridge Brew House for a informal curry night. Before the dinner, Stencila, C4RR Silver Sponsor, will present a little of their latest work involving containers.
If you are planning to arrive in Cambridge on 26th June and need a place to dinner, we recommend the Novi. You might find some attendees interested to talk about their last reproducible work powered by containers there. For any updates on who will show up on the Novi for the pre-workshop dinner you can look #C4RR on Twitter.
