Reproducibility of research is critical to the advancement of science.

Bringing together researchers, students, and administrators at the first Research Reproducibility Conference to start a frank discussion on how institutions can help support research reproducibility and make more research true, we hope to further the dialog around open science, open data, transparency, and good research practices.

The conference will feature prominent speakers and opportunities to explore the concept of reproducibility, and is free of cost for registered participants. In addition, the Center for Open Science will answer questions and provide training on open and reproducible tools, methodologies, and workflows.

Have an idea for a poster? Submit your proposal for the Poster Session, which will showcase cutting-edge research and works-in-progress in pursuit of making research true. Presenting a poster is a great opportunity, especially for students and new researchers, to obtain interesting and valuable feedback on ongoing research from conference attendees. We strongly encourage student and industry submissions. A Best Poster Award will be presented based on the quality of research work, poster design, and oral presentation.

This conference is sponsored by the Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library and the Vice President for Research.
