[robotics-worldwide] [Meetings] [Reproducible Robotics Research] Presentations of ICRA 2018 Workshop on Reproducible Research in Robotics: the IEEE Robotics &Automation Magazine R-papers in Brisbane, Australia, May 21st 2018

Fabio Bonsignorio-3
apologies for multiple postings

Dear all,

In case you missed (or you want to go deeper) the ICRA 2018 workshop on
Reproducible Research in Robotics: the IEEE Robotics &AutomationMagazine
R-papers, please be aware that the realted presentations are being
published on the workshop website here:
( a few are still missing)

Starting from September 2017 for the first time ever for a top-tier
publishing venue in Robotics, the IEEE R&A Magazine solicits and accepts
Reproducible Experiment Articles, see my article here:
https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__ieeexplore.ieee.org_stamp_stamp.jsp-3Farnumber-3D8036322&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=lx1iyarZ5S3Ny6lSq_4H1-6f9rIp3q1w1h6fYaJjvTU&s=lzYfS-wvQKBwc0H2nC182aX1LrICAJ-jSSpGwZHub18&e= and
RAM authors guidelines here (section 9.):

__R(eproducibile)-articles can already be submitted!!!__

All the best

Fabio, Signe and Angel

16:50 Wrap up


In Robotics research the replicability and reproducibility of results  and
their  objective     evaluation and comparison has so far been lacking.
This situation impairs both research progress and research result
exploitation. However, the community has been aware of the issue for a long
time and significant progress has recently been made in this area. In the
September 2015 Robotics and Automation Magazine (RAM) special issue authors
were asked to provide reproducible experiments (allowing a large degree of
freedom about how to define reproducibility and good reporting format).
That special issue had a large number of submissions covering almost every
area in robotics. Starting in September 2017, RAM started to accept
R-Articles (where ‘R’ stands for Reproducible). This workshop aims to
discuss in detail the requisites of reproducible experiments in Robotics
and their reporting, in order to improve the existing process. To make the
discussion concrete we ask the prospective contributors to submit practical
examples of reproducible papers that will be published as R-articles on the
IEEE Robotics and Automation Magazine.
