Conference BDA 2014
Grenoble – Autrans, à l'Escandille
La 30ème édition de la conférence BDA (Gestion de Données – Principes, Technologies et Applications) est organisée à Autrans, à quelques kilomètres de son lieu de naissance, Saint Pierre de Chartreuse (BDA 1985), du 14 au 17 octobre 2014.
Cette édition marquera encore plus les changements radicaux à l’œuvre dans notre domaine (hyper-massification des données, diversification des supports de calcul, renouveau des usages, etc.) BDA 2014 est organisée autour de la présentation d’articles originaux, de sessions démonstrations et jeunes chercheurs. Des invités prestigieux viendront esquisser avec nous, au sein de keynotes et d’ateliers, les futurs systèmes de gestion de données (Divesh Srivastava, C. Mohan, Luc de Raedt, Serge Abiteboul, Cyril Labbé).
Workshop on Traces: "Ethics and Property: How to garantee data reproducibility and data analysis?"
14:00 – 17:00Amphi MJK
Reproducibility of experiments and analysis by others is one of the pillars of modern science. Yet, the description of experimental protocols (particularly in computer science articles) is often lacunar and rarely allows to reproduce a study. Such inaccuracies may not have been too problematic 20 years ago when hardware and operating systems were not too complex. However nowadays are made of a huge number of heterogeneous components and rely on an software stack (OS, compiler, libraries, virtual machines, …) that are so complex that they cannot be perfectly controlled anymore. As a consequence some observations have become more and more difficult to reproduce and to explain by other researchers and even sometimes by the original researchers themselves.
In the last decade there has been an increasing number of article withdrawal even in prestigious journals and the realization by both the scientific community and the general public that many research results and studies were actually flawed and wrong.
Open science is the umbrella term of the movement to make scientific research, data and dissemination accessible to all levels of an inquiring society. In particular, it encompasses practices such as the use of open laboratory notebooks and reproducible research, which refers to the idea that the ultimate product of academic research is the paper along with the full computational environment used to produce the results in the paper such as the code, data, etc. that can be used to reproduce the results and create new work based on the research.
LIG's PhD day: Sofia wins the 2mn madness presentation
Congratulations Sofia !
She wins the 2mn presentation for 2nd-year PhD students during the LIG’s PhD day the 2015/03/26.
LIG’s PhD day is a great opportunity for graduate students to get together and present their work. This year we will have 25 graduate students giving a “2-minutes madness” presentation to go along with a poster session right after.
