2022 Toronto Workshop on Reproducibility

CANSSI Ontario, and the Data Sciences Institute at the University of Toronto are excited to host the second annual Toronto Workshop on Reproducibility. This event is being sponsored by the Faculty of Information, and the Department of Statistical Sciences.

A two-day conference bringing together academic and industry participants on the critical issue of reproducibility in applied statistics and related areas. The conference is free and will be a hybrid of in-person and online on Thursday and Friday 24-25 February 2022. Everyone is welcome, you don’t need to be affiliated with a university.

The conference has three broad areas of focus:

• Evaluating reproducibility: Systematically looking at the extent of reproducibility of a paper or even in a whole field is important to understand where weaknesses exist. Does, say, economics fall flat while demography shines? How should we approach these reproductions? What aspects contribute to the extent of reproducibility.

• Practices of reproducibility: We need new tools and approaches that encourage us to think more deeply about reproducibility and integrate it into everyday practice.

• Teaching reproducibility: While it is probably too late for most of us, how can we ensure that today’s students don’t repeat our mistakes? What are some case studies that show promise? How can we ensure this doesn’t happen again?

We intend to record the presentations and will add links here after the conference. Again, the conference is free and hybrid, everyone is welcome – you don’t need to be affiliated with a university.
