How do you guarantee a colleague will get the same results if trying to re-create your analysis? How do you guarantee you remember all the details auf the simulations behind your nice paper? That is where Reproducible Research comes to the rescue.

The first part of the workshop will give an introduction into the ideas and concepts of reproducible research. It will be explained why RepRes is a wonderful idea and why we have the tools at hand, if we use R and RStudio.

In the second part the learned should be applied. The participant should type some reproducible documents and such gain some hands-on experience. A computer with R / RStudio should be brought to get the most out of the course.

You have to register for the 10th International Research Workshop to participate in this course.
