First International Workshop on

Reproducible Open Science

Hannover, Germany, 9th of September 2016

(Event funded by RDA Europe)

Invited Speakers

Carole Goble
Professor at Manchester University, Fellow Royal Academy of Engineering, Fellow of the British Computing Society
Over the past 25 years she has pursued research interests in the acceleration of scientific innovation through: distributed computing, workflows and automation; knowledge management and the Semantic Web; social, virtual environments; software engineering for scientific software; and new models of scholarship for data-intensive science. Since 2001 she has directed a large, mixed team of researchers, computational scientists and software engineers that specialise in e-Science. She is responsible for many widely used open source e-Science software and she has been a strong advocate for putting software innovations into real practice. She co-founded the UK’s Open Middleware Infrastructure Institute and the Software Sustainability Institute UK. She is leading activities in European e-Infrastructure for Life Sciences including Deputy Head of the UK’s ELIXIR Node and representing the UK on the ELIXIR board; she is WG leader for data/model management of ESFRI ISBE - Infrastructure Systems Biology Europe; and serves as a Council representative on the BBSRC Exploiting New Ways of Working SAP. In 2008 she was awarded the Microsoft Jim Gray e-Science award for contributions to e-Science. Carole received a CBE in the Queen’s New Years Honours 2014 for Services to Science.

What is Reproducibility?The R* Brouhaha ( and how Research Objects can help)

Sunje Dallmeier-Tiessen
Sünje is the data coordinator in the Scientific Information Service at CERN. Together with her colleagues she builds services to enable researchers to practice Open Science and to take steps towards reproducible research. As part of this the CERN Open Data Portal emerged and a new service called CERN Analysis Preservation is under development. Both pay particular attention to the challenge of future reusability and reproducability of research outputs, e.g. through easy and comprehensive preservation of data, code etc.. She holds a PhD in Information Science. Her previous positions in publishing and research management made her realize the need to integrate Open Science "workflows" into scholarly communication and management to incentivize it. Hence, she co-chaired the RDA Data Publishing Workflows group and serves on several boards of national and international bodies. This work, together with a research stay at IQSS at Harvard University in 2015, enabled her to study data publishing practices beyond disciplinary boundaries.
